Question 2015 CBR 1000 RR Fuel Chock Valve?

Back in the day, all my motorcycle had a fuel valve chock. Is it on my bike and I don't know it? Have they eliminated this device?
If so how do you know when your low on fuel? The valve would normally allow you to get an extra 15-20 mile on reserve. How does it all work now? Please explain....

Those are long gone. I haven't seen one on a fuel-injected bike, they may have disappeared long before that also.

There is a low-fuel light on the dash. I'm not sure about pre-2012, but 2012-2016 have a setting on the dash to show the fuel used - and when it goes on reserve it starts blinking at 0.0 gallons. Supposedly at 0.9 you're on fumes, but the tank holds 4.6 gallons and mine goes on around 3 gallons used.

No problem. Here's a youtube video demonstration of most of the features of the dash - it's also in the owner's manual somewhere:

Yeah, fuel injected bikes don't have a petcock. You'll get a warning light when you're low on fuel.
