  1. embarrasingly. i almost ran out of fuel today, stalled at two sets of lights and had to push the bike to the side to start it again.. soooooo embarrasing
    and also, when i went to check the pressure of my rear tire, i almost shat my pants. It was at 22 Psi, as opposed to the recommended 42.
    :oops: :oops: :oops:

  2. :shock:
    Hornet owners are meant to be dilligent when it comes to regular checks on their machines. Don't let this happen again :p

  3. It ain't hard to run out of fuel on a Hornet :LOL:.
  4. Been there done that.

    All part of the joys of riding :)
  5. 42 recommended? From the book?
  6. Yeah, it's a lot for a 250, isn't it? I thought teh same. 32 I would believe, 42 is heavy tourer territory.......

    Regards, Andrew.
  7. 42 would be maximum pressure with a pillion and luggage.
  8. Although 42 psi may sound way too much for a 250 the Hornet 250 is very similar to the 600, just with the smaller engine.
    It's the only 250 I know with a 180 rear.
  9. on the subject of tyre pressures for the hornet .. what would you guys recommend? Paul ?
    I set mine to 38 on the rear ..perhaps too high?
  10. i got the 36 front 42 back from the Hornet UK website.. hmmm do i need to deflate my tires a bit now :(
  11. oh yeah and another question for those 250 hornet owners
    how many KMs do you usually get with a full tank of fuel :)
