Use your reserve…

Petcock in “on” position…

If you are like me you know how many KMs your KLR gets on a tank and rarely run the main tank dry before you fill up again. That’s smart, but it means your petcock rarely gets used and the fuel in your tank’s reserve circuit can get stale.

Reserve selected…

So about once a month I turn the petcock through its full range of motion from “On” to “Off” and then to “Res”. I run the bike on reserve for part of a ride to let the fuel get flushed through that circuit and then I switch the petcock back to “On”.
