Is there a reserve in these tanks, and if so, how much? What is the "real" usable fuel range in the 4.7 -- 3.5, 4, 4.5?

Ahhh... The reserve is determined by the petcock you fit to the tank and the length of the tube that rises above the base of the tank. You would be best served by determining it yourself IMHO.

Hopefully not the hard way. When I fitted a diff. carb to my bike my researve changed, not for the better either.

Depends to on how many times you tip the bike over to get as much gas as you can possibly use.

I have a clarke 4.7. My bike is uncorked, de-smogged, suppertrapp, and has Dave's mods, getting 36 mpg. I get around 140 miles before having to go to reserve, and have ridden around 20+ miles on my reserve before filling up.

Good luck!:thumbsup:

That's just about what I get. I figure 35 mpg and roughly 160-170 per tank. Do not know for sure where my reserve is, but have followed a friend with the same set up and he milked another 20-25 miles out of his reserve.
