Given the vibration from a Vincent, I can quite understand how the petrol would migrate over the hump in the tank – but not on a super-smooth Scott.

The two outlets from the tank were intended to couple together externally so one pipe fed the carb, hence you had a “reserve” by using just one tap, and turned the other one on when the first “side” ran out.
