The important thing is how much of your reserve can you use. I would strap on a 5 liter fuel jug and run out your reserve ... just so you know your TRUE range.

If you can use all the gas on reserve, you're good. If there's much fuel left when the bike quits, then you might have to decide if you want to 'force' the carb elbow to turn or not.
