After picking up my High-Ball three weeks ago I've clocked up 1600 and wanted to know what sort of killometers others are getting to a tank of fuel?
I believe the engine should be pretty well bedded in and this works out to 17.33 k per liter
The High-Ball has a 17 liter tank and I have taken it to 260k and the tank takes 15 liters
Question has anyone taken there tank to the max and what mileage are you getting?
Also what are your thoughts on the 1000 service due to the holiday period I have been unable to get the bike in for the first service at 1000. And as Murphy's law has it the bloody sun is out in full force.
It all depends how you ride.
I've been able to get upto around 300km on a good day. Usually my fuel light goes on by about 250km. I haven't run out of fuel yet, but the range with fuel light on seems pretty good.
The worst i've done is 150km before the light came on, but there was some pretty serious riding involved there, and i'm not the most aerodynamic shaped rider :)
I only run premium fuel too. That could make a difference
Yea mate never understand people that use anything but premium fuel.
It only costs me around $23 to fill it so why would I try and save $1-$2 LOL
You don't drink toilet water so why make your lady drink it.
Word of advise try to stay well clear of SHELL anything when we catch up I'll tell you why.
hi allen, i can get 300 before low fuel light comes on but that is riding fairly easy, average is 250 before light comes on.
i have the small block 100ci.
As for servicing change the oil and filter at the 1000k that gets ride of any casting or swarf and bedding in material.i changed mine at 50km yes 50km. changed it again at 4000km, 8000km ect. i agree about not using shell, fouls the plugs.
I average about 250 kays. I have gotten about 280 kays but my light was on and my fingers were crossed.....lol
Yea mate I was side saddle when I reached 250 k and still 15 k till Bowral LOL
I behaved myself Jase, didnt give it a rev until Lindz started in the tunnel. Then i couldn't help myself.
Thats a big variance and you must have had some back up plan to push it to 290.
My light comes on at about 230 so I have only ever been game to go another 30 .
Your 100% with the Shell fuel mate stay well clear of it.
Allan, i've done as little as 180 before light came on, but i've also done 250 and then another 70 after light came on. And you need to know that Jason's mileage includes the back tyre moving while the bike stays still and a fairly rapid moving Jackpot.(lol)
Totally agree Webby !! lol
