Re: Fuel light coming on after 86 miles on full tank

86 is not that bad, i get about 90 per tank, all depends how hard you ride, done 20,000 miles on mine and always been that way, mind you if you stay below the ton and dont pull hard all the time then you could be down a bit..

Re: Fuel light coming on after 86 miles on full tank

Fuel mileage depends on the riding you are doing on that tank of gas....on my 1000rr my fuel light has come on at 79 (heavy wrist through lots of twisties and straight-aways), I generally get about 90-100 before the light comes on with just general in-town riding and some occasional launching, and i've gotten upwards of 120 before the light comes on easy interestate riding days

If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you...

If it's suddenly less than you're used to, check the fuel pressure regulator.

138MPG?! Did you mean 38MPG?

I would usually get between 90-130 miles depending on how I ride her.
