Fuel economy

Just back from a 2562km trip over 5 days. After picking bike up from 12k service (8 hr labour charge) Valves did not require altering but will next time.
Bike runs much better than previously and basically only difference was the throttle bodies being balanced.
My physical limits on this thing per day is about two full tanks then it starts to get a bit uncomfortable about 500k is enough for the day.
Fuel consumption was an average of 12.7kpl which is amazingly consistant for the last 10,000kms. On this trip we tried to use every possible twisty route we could find. The longest distance before I gassed up was 222.8km which took 18.1 litres.
This bike is awesome in the twisties, I've never reached its limits but I usually nana along up to 7k maybe 8k revs, still can't get my head around the high revs (ex Harley rider ) Included pic of my chickenstrip just couldn't get rid of it.
Only wants are mirrors that work (worse than a harley) and a gear indicator would be nice, otherwise don't change it Mr MV.

Is that Metzler Roadtec Z6 on a Brutale ?

All kidding aside, I had that tire on my Breva 1100, high mileage and surprising amount of grip; but I don't think I would want to twist the throttle on my 910R while heeled over on one.

Can't get my head around your fuel economy figures at the moment - I think in terms of MPG and usually get 29 -30 mpg.

OK, I just did the conversion. Your 18 litres in 228 Km equals about 29 mpg.

Excellent sounds like you had a great ride. Can someone please work out my fuel consumption, I rode for 160klm's and fueled up again and the bike took 13 liters. How many kilometers would I have gotten out of the 17 litre tank.

Cheers.

160 / 13 = 12.3 kpl x 17 = 209k per tank or
100m / (13/4.5) =2.8gal) = 35mpg

Thanks Kiwi Doc, It's funny though you know because I have ridden 200k's without the fuel warning light coming on, work that one out.

I am SO looking forward to having the PC-III fitted. I'm really hoping that it improves my awful fuel consumption. My best ever until the warning light came on was 141km - just about every other time I only get to 130km.

When a passenger of the foot moves in sight, tootle the horn trumpet melodiously to him at first. If he still obstacles your passage, tootle him with vigor and express by word of mouth the warning, "Hi, hi."

Hmmm...... I'm riding the Brute 750S and I'm presuming we all have the same tank. My warning light consistently comes on around 160km (100miles), and though I don't know what capacity reserve is, I ain't getting what you guys are getting in terms of economy. Is it the the power commander that makes the difference??.....

Hmmmm. I'm REALLY hoping that the tune will fix it then. I've been having Greg's problems - lots of lovely fuel to breathe in...

I understand that the 750/910 have the same capacity tanks, and both reserve lights come on at 4 litres remaining. I also think the 750 is harder on the fuel than the 910. Power commander is a good idea but doesn't fix everything sort of gives you more options which can be more of a problem in the longrun.
