When the KLR650 starts to run out of fuel I simply turn the fuel tap to reserve while I'm riding. I've automatically been doing the same thing with the 640. But it looks to me like I won't be able to this once the tankguards are fitted. What do you do? Do you have the tap on reserve all the time you're riding?
You can grind the hole a little bigger if you need to. Chris left the hole fairly small for protection of the petcock.

I ground mine out to a bigger size for personal preference.
The fuel light comes on a few kilometers before you need to flip to reserve. So when I see the fuel light I pull over and go to reserve.
