once the light comes on, will it start to flash when you really get low on fuel, or does it just stay on ??? I got a 2005 750

and how many km's can you go when the gas light comes on ??

The low-fuel light comes on at appr. 3.25 gallons shy of full. WIth a 4.5 gallon capacity (for the 600), that leaves 1.25 gallons. Estimating 40mpg average, you've got 50 miles to go after that light comes on.

I’m guessing that some members’ gas is evaporating before being burned off. This is based on their total amount of posts on this site and not riding their bikes. Then again maybe they like driving around looking like a squid at 11,000 to 14,000 rpms all day.

Gas goes pretty damn quick at 7500 rpm too. Squids going at 11,000-14,000??? Duh! Do you even know how to ride?? Otherwise you would KNOW what determins bad gas mileage......... and it doesn't have to be 11,000 + RPM!!!!!!


But then again....... 190 miles to a tank......


Post count riding experience now huh???


Oh.... by the way..... it's raining here right now.


Also........... DRIVING A BIKE????


What the hell........ I'll throw a couple more of these in for fun......

I am puzzled by a few of these gas mileage issues:

1) I have a 05 600. When the light comes up, I fill up the tank. Every time I do this, I put about 2.2 gallons. Does that mean that I actually had left about 2.5 gallons in the tank, if the capacity is 4.7? Do you guys experience the same thing? How much fuel do you put once the light comes on? In my case it seems that the light comes on a bit too early.

2) What are a few of the more important factors that determine mileage? Theoretically, the best mileage would be from running the bike at 7-8K in the 6th gear? Or how?

i've got a million posts for THREE years

riding around like a squid at 11rpm - well I had to learn the hard way that its GOOD to be up in the RPM's when your running twisites. Believe me, i went into plenty of 2nd 3rd gear corners in 4th and 5th -on a 600!! So that means no power or toque left. I'm surprised I'm still here to tell.

I get maybe 70 miles before the light comes on. That's at the track though
