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: ??

I didn't.  MDR did.  I posted that I thought the range disappears when you've got less than 30 miles left.

It was me that thought it disappeared around the 15 mile mark. The times it's happened have been riding in town traffic on my way home from work when i couldn't be bothered to stop to refuel but could work out that I had enough range left to get home. it could have been a little bit higher than 15 miles but my eyes are looking at other traffic when I'm riding in town rather than the instruments!
Cheers, Joe

I had it show 23km left at one point before it started flashing, and then cleared the range meter.

Then I thought shit.. it might run out soon went in to put gas like 20 km later.. 15 liters put in..........

I had been running the german autobahn at 150-170km/h

Hi all, I know I'm digging this up, but just a quick follow on!

Got my new SX and loving it, topped fuel up to the brim, flashing at 54 miles left on the range.

My question is, how accurate do you find the range gauge? I've got a 20 mile journey home and want to fill up at Costco there ;) I'm guessing it's fairly accurate and I'll make it no bother...
