No Fuel exiting tank

Hi Newby here,
1999 CBR900RR.
Can anyone thro' some light on why there's no fuel coming from fuel tap in 'Reserve' or 'On' position
I've tried sucking but there seems to be a resistance.
If I blow it makes whale song noises....! Made the missus laugh and the dogs started howling but hey......no wiser!
Diaphram is good inside tap.
It has been standing for a while.
Any ideas greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

hi mate, dont quote me on this one as i am very new to the blades but i believe there is a kind of filter gauze inside the tap (?) so i would check that first. dismantle it carefully and blow a bit of compressed air through (back up the pipe) as well ...

You are sucking on the vacuum line?

oh sugar ! yeh keep forgetting the newer models have vac line for fuel ...

mehearties - put the fuel exit pipe from tap into a fuel can etc then give a little suck on the vacuum line and then kink it to hold the vacuum. the fuel should start coming out then. if you ever need to drain the tank you can cable tie the vac line so it is kinked (dont go overboard) and allow fuel to drain.
definately first confirm you have the pipes correct ...

Don't they have a PRIME position on the tap?
There's usually a prime position which manually pushes the diaphram valve open so you can fill the float bowls when they've been drained.
