I rode yesterday, through town on the interestate, then rode hard up to the crest, over 20 miles up and 20 miles down, total ride was 92 miles, put in 1.532 gallons of gas when i got back, just over 60 MPG
I just finished with breakin and let her run in a 5th gear run to redline, 105 indicated, and a run up the mountain mixed with all back road riding on this tank. I am sure it could get better if I was concerned with putting a mileage run together.
If you don't have a 690 yet, get'em before they're gone :thumbup:
Mine SMR runs like a top and handles better than anything I have ever ridden....Thanks KTM!
The other bikes in the garage are going to get lonely ; )
I was on the mountain and my gas light came on. I kinda freaked b/c I didn't want to run out and have to leave her on the side of the road and hike for gas (just kidding, I sure as hell wouldn't do that.) Does anyone know the range left when the gas light first comes on? I topped her off and the light stayed on for a little while, I thought it was broke. It did go out but it seemed to take a really long time.
So, are you saying that you went 35 miles after the Fuel Light came on and it started counting the miles?
That's pretty good to get that much out of the reserve....
Wait, I just re-read your post. So, if it took 2.5 Gal to fill it up and the tank is 3.17 Gal...... That means you still had .67 Gal left of fuel after going 35 miles on the Reserve. So, you still could have gone another 33miles assuming you get 50 MPG??????
Is this right or am I missing something or miscalculating????
I barely made it through high-school math, so I know I'm wrong.....lol
