Fuel Switch Reversed
Just bought an 08 1300 tourer. Had a '10 a while back.
I noticed the fuel control(on/off) faces INWARD/toward center of bike... doesn't seem to be able to be turned around, either. Obviously whoever had the bike before me could have done 'anything' with it, and I've got a manual enroute, but in the meantime, to operate the control switch, you have to do it 'blind'. There also doesn't seem to be a 'reserve' on the switch face.
Fuel system/bike runs great, and I know this could be changed pretty easy, so i'm not overly worried- just found it kinda weird.

?How much of this is factory vs hack?

thanks.
