Hello,

What sort of distance between fuel stops are people getting?

Nothing like constant mathematical gymnastics to ruin a ride! I'M rather spoilt by the V7 270 mile tank even if the light comes on at 200, but don't want to go back to the 140 my Bonneville had.

Cheers

Andy

Thanks for the info. I'm pretty easy on fuel and certainly won't be buying a loud exhaust, so while I'd like 200+ the trade off isn't a deal killer.

An accurate fuel gauge will be a bonus anyway, the Guzzi light let's you know you are on the last half of the tank! The charitable call it Italian character rather than thinking how slapdash the design is!

Cheers

Andy

The fuel gauge on the yamaha works like this, top 2 bars last for ages, last 2 bars go down quicker than womans panties when i drop my mix tape. I've read about a few people noticing this on the MT's as well.

So a majority of that 160 mile range is used up in the first two bars and by the time you're on your last two bars, you better be on the lookout for a gas station? Never really got to that point as I try to keep my tank as full as possible.

Maybe my rides aren't long enough. :crying:

With my sc project I do an average of 4.5l/100km and gives me 230km ish range.

If I ride with happy mode on, my average raises up to 5.5l/100km and I do around 180/200km.

Results after a weekend cruising around. I have filled my tank with 11 lt. I've made approximately 280 kms, with speed ranging up to 145 km/h, and in a variety of roads, highway, small country roads with many turns. Pretty satisfied with mileage
