^^^Wrong size tank.


My light comes on at about 60. Im usually filling up within 5-10 miles after the light and it generally takes 1.5-1.6 gallon. Furthest I've pushed it was 77miles and it took 1.6 gallons.

Like most others, I have the factory peanut on my 48. My light always comes on just over 100km, usually 110km(70mi). When I fill it up it takes around 5L, so I should in theory be able to get around 140km (87mi) out of a tank. I've never pushed it that far though, I've been meaning to just to test my math.. haha

Of course that all depends on city or hwy, your bikes economy, driving habits, etc...

I'm actually picking up a used 3.3, I cant go riding in the mountains with that little gas.. It's fine for work and back, around town, but it's not practical what-so-ever!

I'll keep them both for now... If I cant get past the look of the 3.3, I'll switch them back and forth between trips.

The most I've done on my 72 is 120km (75miles) highway, and 90km (56 miles) in the city. But that is fueling up as soon as the light turns on, on a bike with only 700km on her so far.

So, with a journey to work and back of at least 17 miles each way, I'd have to fill up every other day, or maybe every day.

That's pretty much what I do, it's 25km from the house to work. So 50km there and back, which is just over 30miles. But I always take the long way, or tour through town if it's a nice day.

To make life easier, when I fill up my truck I also fill up a 25L jerry can that I keep in the garage. Every time I roll out, it's with a full tank.
