Where did the 0.5 gallon Go?
Getting to know my newly acquired 2006. Ran some Startron in with a full tank of gas in a bike with 15k miles. A 130 miles later, the fuel light came on and two miles later, we found a gas station. 3.6 gallons to fill her up. equates to about 36 mpg. If there is 0.9 gallons in the reserve, where did the other half gallon disappear to in this 5 gallon tank?
Happy with my initial impressions of this bike. Thinking that increasing the current stock sprocket gearing to a 17 in front and perhaps lowering the number of teeth in the rear would help gas mileage for her intended highway use and still be more than adequate in the lower gears.
From a Newbie, Thanks for chiming in.
