Talking about gas, If you have a full tank and put it to reserve, will it use all 3 gallons or just the one gallon reserve?

Yea I'm doing the GNCC in New York and didn't want to be racing and have it sputtering and need to switch to reserve. I will keep it on reserve and put about a gallon in after 3 laps.

Hmm I don't think there are jets that get clogged up in a efi motor. Lol

I think the only reason it has a fuel (switch) is so you can use the reserve and not be stranded 50 miles from the truck and maint.

I always turn mine off, just habit. I am used to the days when the needle seat could get stuck open in the carb, all the fuel would then pour out the overflow and all over the garage floor. Probably can't happen with a EFI quad, but I still shut it off anyway.

Getting rid of needle valves and floats was priceless!!! Especially with 10% ethanol gas that likes to turn back into corn syrup in the winter.

I don't ever turn my 700xx off, but I have a couple of grass killers that you have to turn off if you want any gas left when you hop back on it.

Actually, I learned by pulling DaGirls up, that it can leak like the old carbs. I didn't think it would, but I stood her straight up and it did, so I shut the valve off and it stopped.

Also, RED and Black, just top it off and you should be fine in the race on regular. I have yet had to add fuel racing, and never did the last 4 yrs that I raced the GNCC in UV. Just thought I'd let you know.

Your saying I won't need to switch to reserve or re fill up the tank for GNCC race? I will have the big 3 and it's about a 2.5 hour race.

Disregard that statement LOL. I ran it on bikes w/ oversized tanks haha. My bad. You shouldn't need more than a gallon at the most I would think, as the race is actually only 2 hours, and no offense, completing 2 hours is hard, and once you get past say the 1hr 40min point, you will be on your last lap, which means you could finish early. Seriously, it is only WOT on the track sections, and only for part of it. We should definately hook up up there. Do you know anyone else going? And are you camping the weekend? I have relatives up there so we could prolly stay there so we have showers and whatnot, plus my cousin owns a bar in town, and yes I know you are like 17, but the burgers there are actually not bad even though I will be taking my own grill and crap, and probably sleeping in my trailer.
