    Reserve fuel tank

    ******NOOB ALERT*********
    I have a 2000 vz800 marauder and I want to know if the fuel nob thats on the left side of the bike is a fuel shut off valve or if it controls the reserve fuel(if it has one)? The reason I ask is because my bike shuts of on me within 1/4 mile if I put the valve to off? I was under the impression that these had a reserve tank. The thing that leads me to believe that its a shut off valve is because when its on the bike runs fine.

    I think (key word think) that is a fuel shut off valve, not a reserve fuel knob. Again THINK....
