IMS tank reserve?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone else had any problems with the IMS valve not working in the reserve position?

While out riding my dr650 this afternoon, the bike started to surge, so I reached down and turned the valve to reserve. No fuel flowing. The tank appeared to still have about 2" on the left side , so I layed it down on the left to get the fuel out of the right side. Still no flow. After pushing the bike over a mile to a station and filling it up, it fires right up. The IMS was already on the bike when I got it, so I'm in the dark on how the valve looks in the tank other than seeing the tube sticking up. I'm assuming it draws out of the top of the tube in the normal valve position and draws out of the valve base in the reserve position? Any insight that will keep me from having to push the beast again would be greatly appreciated.
