“First and i think biggest, is that a previous owner took out the
petcock, so there is no access to the reserve fuel. No idea exactly
why, but thats the way it is. I want to fix it myself or have a shop do
it so that I have the full range of travel. Is this an expensive or
difficult fix?? (i’m also new to fixing bikes).”
He tell you this or you assuming because you can’t find the switch? Also one of the first things you need to do is look a service manual for your bike before you start turning wrenches on it. For many obvious reasons.
However even if it came with one and it is gone you still have the full range of fuel just have someone trail you til you run outta gas to give you some….make note of the distance traveled between fill up and Kaput, and just always pay attention to your mileage.
” The throttle cable is
also slightly wiggly at the handlebars … fix? or don’t worry about
Where exactly at the handlebars….. near the throttle grip? or further back? Again the service manual will be a good thing here also to know how much adjustment you need for proper operation.
