re: pecock switch

Just a question regarding the pecock switch on a 08 kawi 250, I see that there is a ON positon and a PRI position which one should I set it to and what are the purpose of each. Sorry Im new to this carburator thing., thanks

The petcock is vacuum actuated. This means when the engine is off the petcock automatically shuts (Even though the petcock says "on", it is only on when the engine is). The PRI position is for if you want to force the petcock open (ie: You're priming your carburetors and need fuel to flow even though the engine is off)
