IIRC, its a little less than a gallon so probaly 25-30 miles or so depending on how your riding.

35-40 depending on the way you ride. I tested this a couple months ago.

U should easily get 20 miles on reserve. But it does depend on how fast you continue to go. On my 54' with a full system, I got 170 miles to the tank with the last 35+ miles on 'reserve'--but I also dropped my speed to 60 mph.
FYI with my 929 I got 190 miles to the tank @ 80+ mph. But it only has a slip on.

Gotta say I'm quite jealous right now. I get 130 freeway miles before the light turns on. less if I have to play in traffic.

You could alway try a little bit of math and figure it out.

The 954 has a 4.8 g tank with a 0.9 reserve that means you have 3.9 g until your light comes one, so a quick and easy way is use you trip meter, if you get says 140 when the light come on devide is by 4 to make is easy and take off 10%

140/4 = 35
35-3.5 = 31.5

So if you will roughly get 31 or 32 miles if you light is set properly
