  • I never fill it the top. If I'm local probably half a tank at most

  • need to do more miles ian lol

  • Mostly local at the moment, done 800 in 3 days tho lol

  • good amount of miles, how many miles between fuelling

  • Full luggage I only managed 100 but was caning it! Normally 200 miles ish on full tank

  • yeah same

  • Jebus, they drink petrol then when you cane them? 100 miles on say 20ltrs (leaving 4ltrs resrve) is only around 22mpg, that is poor for a Sports Tourer.

  • Apparently side stand makes em stick

  • My 11's use a bit more when you give them stick,but nothing like the zx12 does!! Its mega thirsty even if you rode like a nun, it just gets worse, a lot worse!! But then I didnt buy any of my bikes because of fuel economy ! lol

  • I didn't look at fuel consumption. My dad fell ill so loaded up at caned it to Wales. Last thing on my mind was poxy fuel consumption! On way back it was 47mpg
