Fuel Flow problem Eiger

2005 Suzuki Eiger was only runnig when on "RES" or "PRI" position. Thought it was a petcock problem, so I swapped in a new petcock(OEM) The new one has the fuel port in same location but the vacuum port is on bottom instead of back. Now it runs fine on "PRI" and "ON" but not on "Res". Can't figire out whats going on. When on RES it will run OK for a few minutes then seems to be starving of fuel and will eventually quit? On the other two positions it runs fine.

I'm guessing you have some dirt in the reserve tube. Has it got the screen on it? If so, maybe dirty from the factory?

screen?
