Does the size of the fuel tank (17 Liter) encompass the reserve?Manual states 17 liter tank and also 4.5 liter reserve, so not certain if that means the main tank is 12.5 liters. Picking up mine bike this week and just trying to number out the variety before ns hit reserve.I"m in Canada. Am ns going come get around 250kms prior to hitting reserve and then an additional 50 or therefore kms top top reserve?

The 17 liter is total. I"m in the united state so usage to gallon. On my 1100, I collection trip meter everytime ns fill up. Start trying to find gas at the 100 mile mark. That will conveniently go 120 miles prior to I need to switch to reserve. I execute a lot of city driving so mine mileage is typically lower 보다 most, throttle hand might likewise come into play. The make reservation is right at 1 gallon, therefore to be safe get gas within 30 miles after switching. I hate pushing my bike so I"m constantly conservative on obtaining fuel.Fuel Tank volume - regular & Reserve:Fuel tank capacity: 17.0 l (4.49 us gal) (3.74 Imp.gal)Fuel to make reservation amount: 4.5 together (1.19 us gal) (0.99 Imp.gal)Rounds the end to: 3.3 gal main, to add 1.2 gal reserve for total of 4.5 festival (US gal)

My 650 has actually 16l complete with 3 l reserve and also I usually obtain 230 kilometres per tank running approximately 90 kph to 100 kph mostly flat roads - you have to expect approximately the exact same - originally when I got the bike ns rode it till the engine quit and also then switched to reserve - really the only means to inspect your borders - you might want to try that at 120 kpm since it will use fuel an ext at that rate - yet that"s just really necessary if you"re act a lot of highway riding.

I"m in Canada too yet I have an American bike. The the furthest I"ve gone prior to switching come reserve is 142 miles, yet I"ve had actually to move at 120 before too. It"s short range is one of my pet peeves about it (the others being the oil filter and also oil vision glass), yet I generally run roughly 70-75 mph ~ above the highway for this reason that could have other to execute with it. And since I understand how much I deserve to go i just set the expedition meter and also start planning because that a fuel stop after i pass 100 miles. It"s really only been a PITA throughout group rides (got separated critical summer while searching for a gas station).

Finally had a nice day for biking. Go approx 400 kms v Eastern Ontario backroads. Observed a huge moose in Algonquin Park.According to mine calculations my 2007 1100 Classic, i m sorry is completely stock gets around 20km / liter. This is on an additional hwy"s v posted speeds of 80 kph and I was doing around 90 - 100 kph. Therefore that functions out to around 240 kms prior to reserve i m sorry is best on par with what everyone else seems to be getting.Sure is a great bike. Starts and runs perfect and has many or torque. I discover the stock pipes sound just right. No overly loud but can hear them well at hwy speed without leading to me to walk deaf.

Sounds prefer you had a great ride. Now that you know a mileage when you switch to reserve just set your pilgrimage meter and you will constantly know once to get gas. I normally star looking around 20 miles early on so I"m not recorded off guard. The moose looked to large to make mad. ?

Those are big critters. I was driving mine 18 wheeler down a two lane highway v the center of i do not have anything one winter and also I came upon a bull and also cow standing in the road. Since of the snowbanks lock didn"t jump right into the woods and also trotted down the road ahead of me. Ns rolled along behind them because that a bit and also when they moved to one next I slowly pulled past. Their heads were level v my side window.

Great spring bike and I concur top top the milage. Mine gets comparable distance. Concerning the moose, and also old guy story: In "74 if stationed in ~ Ellsworth AFB in south Dakota, we would certainly go top top dispatch"s for maintenance on the Minuteman III missiles scattered all over the countryside on the high plains. They were 150 come 300 miles from base with 10 miles in-between every missile so if one had actually a straight hit, the rather would continue to be intact. If we had problems and our job reviewed 20 hours, they sometimes choppered a relief team out and chopper us ago to the base. There to be a couple of times the pilot would watch some Elk and go under to buzz them, I"m sure that fear the divine you understand what out of them however as a 21 year old, it to be pretty cool.

^ the Australian army wanted to modify the helicopter trip simulators they usage to train pilots for the unique instances they conference in Australia.For example, if there is a large number of Kangaroos in an open area, and you paris by, they will certainly be startled and all run off. Lock can provide away the place of the helicopter if an opponent sees them running off. For this reason they want their trip simulator modification to encompass herds the Kangaroos.It would have been a most SW programming to begin from scratch. The programmers determined that infantry action the same way, if a helicopter flew through they would all operation for cover. Therefore they just took the model for a soldier and put a Kangaroo figure on it.When the pilots do the efforts the simulator, the Kangaroos would certainly all scurry away, but then they would take cover and also start shooting at them.
