I believe this is how it works.

Arrow down = fuel on

Arrow up = reserve

Arrow pointing to front = fuel off

You might be right, but I thought the arrow always pointed down toward the fuel line for the fuel to be on.

To be sure, he could run it low on fuel and when it runs out, turn it the opposite way and see if it will start and run.

I know for sure that pointing toward the front is off. The more I think about it, the more I think you are right, Billy.

I don't have a 400EX, but I just looked at mine and according to mine, Billy is right. But mine is a 400 Foreman. Here is how it works.

Up = fuel on

Down = reserve

pointing toward rear = off

That was probably what I was thinking about, because I have a couple Yamahas, too.
