We had a long thread about this a while back. It's probably still online.

Reserve is normally on the right except sometimes they put it on the left. When I replaced the petcocks on my bike a few months ago I bought two reserves. I like to use left as the reserve, easier to switch it when you run out.

Yes, it's always on the left except when they put it on the right.

Or is it the other way around?
