No doubt a very typically 'L-plater' question but I will put it forth nonetheless... What is the best way to gauge how empty my fuel tank is? When I bought my bike ('91 ZZR250) I was told I would be able to hear and/or feel a change in the engine before I needed to turn it to reserve, but so far I have managed to run it so low (once in the middle of peak traffic argh!) that switching to reserve doesn't get it started straight away ...I've needed to push the bike to the side of the road, switch to reserve, let it sit for a bit (we both need to regain our composure!), then finally she starts up ...having said that, the first time I did push way too many k's out of a tank (had no idea how many i'd get) but after the first time, I made note of how many k's I'd done (about 280) and figured I'd need to fill the tank after the next 200, but alas had only done about 170 when my bike & I coughed, spluttered & died in the middle of a right hand turn. Took a while to start up again. Looked in the tank & it looked low, but not what I'd call empty. What am I doing wrong? Is it that there actually is a change in the sound of the engine, but I'm not hearing it? Should I just adopt the safe option and fill it every 150kms? I would greatly appreciate any feedback, even if I'm doing/not doing something really obvious & you just wanna laugh at me Thanks in advance!!
