In early 80's, there was often no fuel gauge on motorcycles below 750cc.
Mine (CM400 1980) is limited to your reserve valve in normal position... if your engine stalls, turn it to reserve position until you get to the next gas station.

I use my trip odometer to predict I will likely run out of gas after xxx miles. This is the way to go if yours still work.

Default Starting Problems

Hi,

This bike starts good. After warming up for a minute or two I turn off the ignition. I try to start back but it just spins. The battery runs down and goes dead. Any ideas?
