Hi all,

Does anyone know how many miles/km you can get once the fuel empty starts flashing?

cheers

The manual states tank capacity is 14 liters. I add gas just when fuel empty starts flashing and maximum I do is 10 liters. So fuel reserve is 4 liter. At the average mileage of 25 KM per liter so the reserve should be 100 KM !!!

I ran out in the drive way after doing just over 50 km on reserve, averaging 4.8L/100Km. This suggests a 2L reserve. I could only then just get 12L in my tank? But I was filling up to the bottom of inner cup. I think the tank has 2L of wasted 'breathing' space. I can comfortably get 250km out of the bike when I ride as hard as I like around town.

On the highway or being super gentle I've gotten 300KM - 3.8L/100KM. But I brim it now too.

I hope no one here is going to make it a habit to run till its low, best thing to do is aim to fill up once it reaches 1/4, anything less is pushing it.

I bought my XSR700 brand new, and currently has ~400 miles on it. I've noticed that the fuel status flashes empty rather prematurely. I noticed on the 2 previous occasions, the tripmeter resets to zero the moment my fuel status starts to flash empty, which made it really easy to calculate exactly how far I can go on "reserve".
I managed an additional 39 miles before the bike ran completely empty and came to a halt. This was done safely in a controlled area.
I'm not sure of my consumption during the duration, but was almost always in the "eco" mode for those 39 miles.
I was informed by my dealer the tank capacity is 13.5L (not the 14L specified everywhere else?). However, From the bike being completely empty, I refueled to full tank (triggering the pump cut-off but performing a slow squeeze just to go to the brim) and still only managed to fill it with a maximum of 8.96L.
Have I been misinformed? Am I doing something wrong?

I'm not so much bothered about the inaccurate fuel gauge, because there are a lot of factors that go into that (weight, ride attitude, gradients, wind speed etc..).
I'm more concerned that a real empty tank (drained to a halt) with a full refill can only accept 2/3 of the supposed tank capacity.

I've gotten around 35km once the light came on, and then there was just a splash of fuel left in the bottom of the tank when I looked.

Do the fuel gauge starts flashing close to empty? 🤣 I've never left my bike go below the last minimum bar. But is nice to know she'll start flashing if it's super low

Jepp, the fuel gauge starts with 00 and flashing. You will see your distance on empty counting.

I did some refueling more meanwhile and know, that more than the mentioned 8,98 l can be filled, when running on empty.
Just clench the fuel nozzle with the brim and hold full stroke until the pump cut-off. Lift the nozzle a little and under slow squeeze I fill above the brim, shaking the bike two, three times and refill still under slow squeeze above the brim. Finished.

This is quite fast and the tank is filled without major air bubbles above the 'sub zero' brim.

I can confirm. Today my fuel gauge started to flash. I drove some 4 km to gas station (according to speedo counter that did change from odo to 00 trip automatically when flashing started). I filled 8.68 litres while the bike was on a side stand. I didn't try to level it up, so I am not sure if I could fill a litre more with that, but yes, seems strange that where are those 5 litres. If they are there, you should be able to drive more than 100 km when the flashing starts.

Hey guys!

Yesterday i was touring through one of my favourite route. I had filled the tank and reset the km. I guess i had 70-80 km/h average speed because there was many villages through the way and frankly i ride along them with 55/60km/h. There was so many carves and my fuel consumption showed me 4,4l. i also had 40km on highway with a speed between 130-160km/h.

Guess what, after 250km i filled again and i could only streamed 9,94L. Worst case i had 50 more.
Awesome!
