Fuel economy

  1. Hi,
    I have a 1991 Kawasaki kdx250. It's a 2 stroke bike and runs perfect, what sort of kilometres should I be getting per litre if I'm doing city driving so a little stop start but I also do a couple small hills here and there.

  2. Hello to you too.
  3. Are 2 strokes allowed on public roads in SA?
  4. Yeah, i don't think there's many still out there that are but I know this one is and Gas Gas do a bike that is
  5. Not a lot of 2 strokers left. California legislation basically killed them in the USA and manufacturers basically lost interest in making them.
  6. Yeah, I've only ever seen one on the road. But mine doesn't have a fuel gauge so I'm hoping someone can help me out with the distance
  7. Fill the tank,
    Ride around for about 120km.
    Fill the tank again and note the amount of fuel you put in.
    That will give you a Litre/100km figure.

    Its a 12.5litre tank I think so that gives you your maximum range.

    And when you get a chance go and start an introduction thread in the Welcome Lounge it is the general custom around here. (y)
