I had no range to ride and flashing empty tank sign and I put up to top tank and I put only 16.95 liter.

Sent from my SM-G920F


I think the range disappears when you drop below 20 miles.

I've had mine display right down to 15 miles. I think it depends more on how you've been riding, ie. conservatively vs. aggressively, for what it can reliably estimate/display.

Mmm, that's strange as mine is a 2014 bike bought in Jan 2015 and the fuel gauge flashes at 50 miles left in tank and the display goes to ---- at 29 miles left so how did you get a 15 miles left display kwacky  :087: ??

So glad yours runs down similar to mine... about 30miles remaining the range stops. By this time though, I am looking for the next petrol station.

That ONE time I was running a "let's see what I can eek out of a full tank run" I had the mpg showing 53.7 and got 217 miles from the tank before I bottled it and filled up! :)

I get the flashing display with, as the manual says, a bit over 4L remaining but have only seen the range drop to "----" a couple of times, both around the 15 miles to go mark. I've never seen an mpg figure of over 50 though - occasionally the high 40's when taking it easy with the wife on the back but more usually between 42 and 46, depending on exuberance.
Cheers, Joe

Good to know, but what sort of riding?  All motorways?  Cruising speed?

Boring riding! lol
Just weekly commuting = mostly motorway, 65-70 mph, never above 4K during acceleration...
