On older/vintage british bikes, there are typically two petcocks....one is Main and one is Reserve. One petcock attaches on one side of the tank, the other on the other. A motorcycle tank is essentially divided into to chambers by the central frame spine of the bike....having only one petcock on one side, means no fuel can be used from the lower half of the other side of tank that sits below the frame spine.
