2. Test petcock flow in RESERVE. Repeat test and let petcock flow for 10s in reserve position. How much petrol did you collect?
I felt silly, but it is done. I have only run my bike on reserve for my testing (beats constantly moving around a full gas tank, plus I want to paint my tank soon so I've been keeping the fuel low in it to make draining easier).

RESERVE had a flow rate of 6.9 grams/s (1.104 gal/min or 0.773 gal/min depending on how the conversion works. The first is assuming water mass so 0.016gal/min per 1 gram/s, the second is applying that gasoline is about 70% of the mass of water)
