Personal best on mileage

20180715_130653 by downwardvd, on Flickr


Here's the furthest I've pushed it so far but I have to ask if anyone has ran as far to the point where the last bar on the gauge disappears?
Also when I filled up it only took 1.9 gallons , this leads me to believe I still has 0.6 gallons left and I could've made it to 136 miles?


Please chime in!

Yep. But the last bar on the gauge didn't disappear, but remaining trip had "---", then put in 8.97 litres.

I have done many more miles on a tank as well, when I go out directly I fill the tank real high, above the neck some way, might start taking some more pictures.

I think 145 miles has been my furthest so far, i also remember being at 137 when I had 2 remaining.

My low fuel warning light came on. The bike was brand new. I was bringing it home from the dealership. (It is a 50+ mile ride and they didn't give me a full tank.) I've forgotten how much fuel it took to fill the tank.

I won't play as I'll make you all jealous with my 12.1 litre tank... I don't always go to empty, I know where the cheapest fuel is and drop off there hen I'm passing...

I look to fill her up at around 120 miles based on having run to 139 miles previously

Was just at 110 miles with two bars remaining (had been two bars for awhile so it could have been going to one shortly). Have to admit, despite that, I was definitely looking for a station just in case. But, assuming the gauge is reasonably accurate, I figure it's good for about 130 or so. I'm probably on the cautious side as I once ran out on another bike and it is one PITA. Fortunately, the guy I was with, was able to limp into the nearest station on fumes and brought back a small container of gas.

I regularly fill up at 120 miles, have had nearly 145 before but I was seriously close to running empty (pumped 9.1 liters to fill it)

It depends though, if you are doing 70+ on the motorway for whole tank you wont get over 120ish

When you fill it up do you fill it up to the silver bit inside with the holes in or do you go past that?

I stop at the silver bit or when it shuts off. Don't like going beyond that and topping off in case it accidentally runs over on to the tank.

I just cover the holes on mine... but you do have to be careful not to spill. But itís worth the effort as I can get a decent amount of extra fuel in
