So I may be really wrong, but I almost failed my motorcycle skills test because I didn't know where my fuel shutoff switch was.
I thought that fuel injection kinda did away with the need for that. Turn off the power and boom, no fuel.
:wtf:

It's the petcock right inline with your ECU

Older carberated bikes will have a petcock between the tank and carbs that you can have in the on/off/reserve position. I am guessing this is what he was talking about. It is usually to the right or left side of the bike under the gas tank.

FI bikes really don't so far as I know. I have had the gas tank off of the Z a few times and use vise grips as a fuel shut off switch to pinch the hose.
