If you are mainly highway riding, how many miles do you go before having to use the reserve? I have a '96 VT1100, and it has been varying quite a bit, and I was wondering what the Norm is. Thanks-
Pretty much the same for me including the 80 mph runs @ 114 mi. reserve switch which came out to 38 mpg. 42 mpg. is the norm for me. Went 160 mi. on a tank ONCE. Took 4 gal. to fill again.I have always had a windshield on my VT1100 and the tank hits reserve usually between 120-130 miles.
On our latest tour, riding two-up with full saddlebags, loaded touring bag and highway speed average of 80 mph, the regular tank emptied out at 117 miles.
