Bikes with a reserve are getting rare as FI takes over. I climbed all over the Vee looking for the reserve valve only to find they removed it from the 04 and onward when the FI went in.

You can't use a reserve on a bike with a fuel pump anyway, you'd burn the pump out when it lost suction. I assumpted the guy had an older carburated bike by the fact their was no fuel gauge or ijit light.
