Oil and Fuel Consumption 11/2010 Blade - (for the record)

Thought I'd share the results of some comsumtion tests. I've had a couple of KTMs that needed to be run in before oil consumption settled down. Unfortunately with 6,072ks on the clock, the Blade has already been run in.

Here's the oil level the day after the bike's first run. now 6,333 ks on the clock.


Interested to see what sort of range I'll get out of the tank before I head off to the GP.
16.4km/L from Saturday's ride.
19.5 km/L for the ride to Mudgee . Will get the figures for the return run when I refuel.
18.2km/L on 95 RON

Hit reserve for the second time and decided to find out what the 3.5 litre reserve is good for. Stuck $5 of fuel in a can in the rear sack and headed out of town.
Got back to the servo with 3.5 L flashing on the display, 330 ks on the trip meter, and managed to squeeze 17.0 litres into the "18 litre" tank. (I could hear some fuel sloshing about before I filled it.)

So for the MotoGP trip next week, I can bank on 60+ ks from reserve.

The oil hasn't moved in 2,000ks.

I've got the oem seats (and mudguard for the Vic police).

Should be good.
