Fuel range '99 ZX-6R

  1. My son-in-law has just bought a 1999 ZX-6R and, as you may know, the bike doesn't have a fuel gauge or even a low fuel light.

    Under normal riding conditions (commuting, bit of highway, the occasional scratch) what sort of fuel range should he expect?

    Also, as the bike has a manual fuel tap, how far will Reserve get you?

    Thanks in anticipation.

  2. i usually get 300-350 kms before i hit reserve
  3. Excellent, thank you!
  4. I've got a 98 zx9 and I get about 200km before reserve, I'd expect the 99 zx6 to be about the same but the only way to know for sure is to use the trip meter and start with a full tank.
