    Posted: 03 Mar 2014 at 09:25
Hi Folks,

Finally got out on my 04 for the first time yesterday and what an amazing bike! 

Only noticed a few things, I topped up the tank and it took £10 or 7 liters fuel (was £1.30ppl)

Full tank and the light starts to blink on at 80 miles then goes out again, blinks back on at 82 miles then goes out.. 
will the light keep doing this and eventually just stay on? but surely 80ish miles out a tank isn't right? the bike has viper race silencers and i am assuming it must be on map 2.

what does everyone else get out a tank?

thanks

Depends how you're riding really!
80 is pushing it a bit, and definitely not at legal speeds!! 110 miles in cruising mode.

If you're used to an inline 4, you may still be revving the balls out of it, hence the fuel consumption

Depends how you ride it. if you were going for it 80 miles to a tank is probably about right. You will know how much is left by how much it takes to refill it. If that is much less than you put in originally then you know the light is telling lies.

If your on hilly roads it's not uncommon for the light to react to fuel moving back and forth in the tank. I did 25 miles with the light on in the pyrenees, thinking i was gonn a run out. When i filled it up there was 2.5 litres still in there, it's just a false reading from the steep hills.

also bear in mind the Gen2 has a smaller tank than Gen1 so comparison is not the same.

Brim the tank and see how much it takes. If it's quite a bit less than the tanks capacity then you know the light is on early. Otherwise you are just guessing.

Mine came on many times around the 80 mark in the twisties but averaged around 90/100 in general riding.

When out with the Tuono guys I noticed the gen 2s were a bit more greedy than the gen 1s. I usually get about 36-40 mpg. Been down to 30ish and as high as 50, depends who I'm out with. I did notice that I was getting better mpg since fitting the forza chip

I have had well over 30 miles on the light once it is on constantly -  but that was when I knew I had to be sensible with the reserve.
 
normally get about 85 - 115 to the light .

Gen 2, I wait till the light stays on, then give myself Max 30 miles easy riding, 20 while in fun mode. I expect for normal riding, the light comes on at 100-110. Track days, as low as 70. If your getting it at 80 miles, easy riding, then you might have a problem. Has it been serviced? If on map 2, has it got a PC connected, is it dynod to the bike?

80 miles steady riding?!? That's definitely an issue mate, bell the shop and get it in for a setup!! You aren't riding them miles in first with the back brake locked on are you?

Well to update, I filled it this morning and it only took 11.75 liters so I dont think I need to worry to much... the light hadn't actually stayed illuminated, so I know for future reference not to worry until the light comes on and stays on!

Phaaa.........fuel lights !
My Multistrada has a 20 ltr tank that will do 150 miles, and the light comes on at 45 !!!!!
When I had the standard clocks on my rsv I always worked on 120 to a tank but I would be looking for squirt at 100.

Go for a long ride, tank brimmed. Take a small can of petrol strapped to pillion seat then ride until you stop. Well, that's what someone said to me once and I though that was a sh*te idea. Brim the bike, ride a 100 miles normal style, the way you like it, then brim it again, work out how far you went to a litre, then multiply by tank size....you'll know what you need to know then
