Whilst out with my girly on the back today I accidentally hit the reserve.. I didnt realise that I had run many miles, so whilst conked out on the roadside I checked the trip – 155 miles since last fillup! OOPS!!
Got going again once the carbs primed up on reserve.
So how far have you got before getting low????

Im not sure, my suzuke says it#s got about a litre on reserve?July 31, 2006 at 12:01 am #50413RadarModerator
Varies quite a bid, the YZF will do about 160-170 miles until the fuel light comes on, but the XJR only about 120 miles till reserve. My first RD350 was the most varied bike I have owned, 18 mpg loony tunes riding everywhere but 61 mpg riding steadily in the wet 2 up.
I generally start looking for fuel after 100 miles or soJuly 31, 2006 at 9:39 am #50414imperialdataKeymaster
I’ve got a crap range on the KTM 625. About 50-60 miles before reserve. And you can’t easily change onto the reserve tank as the lever is under the tank close to the middle of the engine. A gloved hand does not work at all. Same for the choke, it’s buried right in there. But that’s not the point anyway. You need to use the running-out-of-fuel as an excuse to pull over and remove the seat from out of your bum cheeks.
Still love that bike though.July 31, 2006 at 11:49 am #50415LeviathanRanParticipant

That’s because the KTM has a tea cup for a tank hehehe
I agree though your KTM is a nice bike!July 31, 2006 at 10:00 pm #50416Speed MonsterParticipant
100-120 to the reseve on mine. Yet to test the full tank range!August 1, 2006 at 1:12 pm #50417barmy_carmyParticipant
Our bike only holds 13ltrs, We tend to top up every 100 miles! Depends how fast we’ve goneAugust 4, 2006 at 4:13 pm #50418
I agree with the variations on the rnage before hitting resreve.. If I´m out having a blast onmy own, then normally I´ll need to refil after 100 miles, but with the girly on the back I ride so sedately that I get the extra 50 miles or so. I was VERY surprised last week though to be caught out like that… and the reserve tap is so inaccesible I had to stop`to get to it.August 7, 2006 at 7:02 pm #50419barmy_carmyParticipant
Well I’m very glad to say Dave doesn’t hold back on ze throttle Muuuuaaaaahahahahahaha!August 8, 2006 at 7:54 pm #50420
