    Hey guys, New rider and first time ever posting on a forum with what i assume is a very noob question. Hoping someone can give me some help. I enjoy all things 90s and I just got my first bike a 92 cbr250rr. From what I have read, relative to a clock, 12 should be reserve, 3 off, and 6 on. If the small end points to correct position (or is it the longer end) on my bike I have 9, 12 and 3 (again relative to a clock). Hope someone can explain which way is what. I have attached some photos.

    Thanks

    Yes. the legends on the knob do not line up terribly well with the pointer.
    Essentially the middle position is off. Rotate clockwise for on and anticlockwise for reserve.
    You can often move the entire tap and extended knob to better line up with the pointer.
    If it is miles out, you can insert a long bladed philips head screwdriver through the hole in the knob and remove the screw that hols it. The knob then pulls off. It is mounted on a square drive so can be moved through 90 degree increments to help with alignment.

    Hopefully you will avoid running the tank low and needing to switch to reserve.

    I have found switching to reserve on the freeway at 100 km/h can be a bit of an ordeal. Firstly you have to find the tap, somewhere down near you left knee and then you have to remember which way to turn it. Inevitably, I have to pull over to sort it out.

    Enjoy.

    Peter.

    JIS screwdriver instead of Philips please, invest in a set before you do any maintenance on a near 30 year old Japanese bike.
