    With going with the fuel mileage.

    Just remember to reset you trip meter after each fill up.

    flashing light = find fuel. I've never had mine go steady on yet, but there's a lot of fueling stops locally, so I'm never more than 10-15 miles from someplace with gas.

    Do you guys notice the blinking light starts to blink faster before it stays lit or is that just my imagination?

    LOL....Dude, stop staring at it and keep your eyes on the road!

    At first I was going to say I never noticed that....however, now that I think about it, I can almost remember it going slower at some point, because I can recall wondering if it was from the cold...silly as that sounds.

    Either that, or I'm just being sympathetic because I want to ride again so badly.

    Just did a 3600km ride, and have to say that I was a bit apprehensive about finding fuel in some places. On the maps it was about 280km between towns.

    The fuel light starts blinking from 200 -230kms depending on the speeds.
    At 120kmh, it is 230km. At 160+ kmh it is about 200 kms.
    If I fill up when the light starts blinking, it takes about 11.5 litres. About 3.5 litres left?
    So, should last 60kms? (35 miles)

    In the end, I found fuel stops every 150km or so, so it was not a hassle.
    next year, I plan to ride a lot further, and am planning on taking extra fuel with me.
    Some places are about 500km+ between available fuel.

    Using the trip meter is VERY safe and easy to use. Don't waste any time investigating it further.

    ...and if you'd still rather have the guage...I'd suggest you trade in the bike for a newer model...it's about the only way you'll get one.
    Good advise, I just reset one of my trip odometers at every fill up.
    Good luck and safe riding,
