I filled up yesterday at 123.8 miles. Took 2.31 gal. That means I should be able to get to 170, but I don't want to find out for sure.

Both on the 883 and 1200S, both with high flow air intakes and less restricted mufflers, typically 120-130 miles to reserve.

Same here...right around 80-85 miles, my light comes on and if I gas up right away it's always right around 2 gal from full...but I'm only getting 39 mpg.

I don't have a low fuel light installed on my '07, but it is easy to tell when I need to fill...at a certain point my bike will begin to surge from lack of fuel due to the pump being uncovered during accelleration.

I "can" go about 130 miles before I "have" to fill up. Generally low fuel light comes on around 90 miles. I'll generally fill up around 100 miles and it'll take about 2.5 gallons.

Oh, I thought all the '07s onwards (the EFI bikes) had a low fuel light? Made up for not having a petcock with reserve, no?

Depends on how heavy you are on the throttle...from 90-130 miles per tank full is the best you can do before flipping to reserve, Non EFI bike!

Low fuel light used to come on at around 90 miles(stays on all the time now). And it takes right at 2 gallons to fill up. So i'm getting around 150m per tank. I think unless you really want to replace your fuelpump 100m is the range.
