Run on Reserve occasionally

A reminder to occasionally ride your bike on "Reserve".

The petcock has a screen in side the tank, but it is just that - a screen.
Small particles can go thru the screen and settle in the "Reserve" hole.
They will eventually cement it shut.

Would you consider it running on reserve whenever the red fuel indicator is lit?
You are running on your reserve/sub tank when the light is on. No need to flip anything.
