If you're looking at the petcock directly from the left side of the bike, ON is at 6 o clock, prime is at 3 o clock, and reserve at 9 o clock.

My fairings are removed and I'm new to riding. It's easy to remember that down is "On" because it's always there. I just remember that reserve is forward by thinking if I ever run out of gas, I want to go forward. Maybe that trick will help keep it straight.

What if you're hanging upside-down looking at your bike through a mirror?

Um , then you need to back away from the bike for a minute 'cause you got too much going on :roll: .
