Default Don't ever trust a GG reserve!

I have been doing the GG thing now for a bit over a year I guess. Back last fall my son and I were riding and he ran out of fuel. No biggie, I would just move her over to reserve. Ouch, nothing. I did a little figuring and came to the conclusion that maybe the fuel lever was just a little passed "on" toward reserve. I did a little experimenting and found you will get fuel flow if the lever is just half way to on (or maybe just a bit more), so from then on I was careful to never have my gas fully on. So Friday I was going to run out and walk this new trail I was wanting to add to my loop. I knew I didn't have much gas, but I made sure it wasn't all the way on, so I figured I would be fine. Well,, cut to the chase, I ran out of gas. Switched her over to reserve, nothing. Looked down, ouch, no gas. Again, my lever was not all the way on. Lucky I was just a bit over a mile from home, so no huge deal.

Moral of this story, do not trust a Gasgas for reserve!!!!
2006 EC300, 2000 XR650R, 2003 EC250, 2001 EC200 (OK, the last two are really my sons).
