How does the reserve work in a 06 shadow? Is it a seperate tank inside of the tank or is it Just 2 lines that are different lengths

  • The petcock has about a 5 inch copper tube, once the gas goes below it, it draws in gas from the base of the petcock... i.e Reserve

  • 2 lines different lengths in the tank

  • Not on all models Carl.

  • K sure

  • Carl Andrews My 06 VT750BCA (Spirit) is one copper line with a sleeve filter over it and the Reserve feeds from the base of the petcock.

  • So basicly what i need to know is, if i never switch it to reserve is the gas going to go bad?

  • As long as you are filling up on the regular you'll be fine. Person I use Sta-bil and a little seafoam every fill up and I never have had a problem.

  • I have a .9 gal reserve in my 03 750. Haven't looked inside but I don't know of a tube long enough to hold almost a gal of fuel without being noticeable from the fill neck....

  • I run threw at least a tank a week didnt no if it went in its own like seperate tank and was stored till flipped till reserve
