What mileage do you get on your bikes?

Discussion in 'Bike Reviews, Questions and Suggestions' started by ChiggenWingz, Jun 30, 2007.

  1. Hey everyone.

    What bike does everyone have, and how far do you get out of a tank? Such as when your riding it hard for a day, or just pottering along on a freeway?

    I'll chuck everyone's answers in the first post so we can have a rough idea on what we should all be expecting out of our bike's thirty engine.

    (I still dont know my mileage yet, too inconsistent) :grin:

  2. For 600's-750's i get around 160-180km around town and for the 1000's i get around 90-140km around town for the country add like 30-40km onto that.

    Oh and for the 250's around 200-240.

    This is just when i ride them.
  3. 2001 GSXR600 from 260 to 330 Ks per tank
    2005 GSX1400 from 320 to 400 Ks per tank
  4. I get 200 k's from a tank on the 14.
    Doesn't matter how I ride it, always 200.
  5. 'Doesn't matter how I ride it' = you always ride it the same way :p

    2002 zzr250 - 450 until empty.

    edit; 4L/100kms
  6. My god, i wish i could get that kinda of fuel usage.
  7. ER6F (650cc)
    15.5 ltrs- I get about 300kms from a tank
  8. On the old SV650 I got about 240/250 before light came on. Only put 14 litres in at servo though. It has a 17 litre tank but I never wanted to run it out.

    CBR1000RR. Actually it's pretty much the same per tank, but it has an 18 litre tank as apposed to a 17. So it's probably a tiny bit more thirsty then what the SV was, but not by much. If I were putting I imagine I could get over 300k out of a tank.........maybe.
  9. Old Kwaka 600cc = at a stretch I got 362km getting fairly low on the reserve, 310km is pretty normal, and 250km if ridden enthusiastically.

    That's putting approx 17lt in (18lt tank)
  10. who cares :p when its empty fill up and repeat :LOL:
  11. Hmmm, iam getting around 220-240 .. was getting about 200 when i first got it..
  12. Fair comment :LOL:
    I just ride till the light comes on then start to look for a servo.

    I have never really kept a close eye on what I'm using because of all the variable involved.

    But at a guess Ide say around 180 in a playfull mood, and somewhere close to 280 cruising
  13. Doesn't matter how many k's you get to a tank, L/100km's is the only usefull measure.

    Example- I could get close to 400kms (if you punched out reserve mabye you'd hit 400km) on my 93'000km 1981 GS650 katana, but it was definetly not fuel efficent, just a massive 23L tank.
  14. If you are only interested in fuel economy then you're correct.

    Knowing how far a bike can travel on one tank is usefull info if you're touring as you will want to know how far you can go before you have to fill up. Also if you commute, you don't want to be filling up too frequently because you're justing wasting all that time you made up by carving up the traffic :grin: .
  15. 210km's until the fuel light starts to flash. About 14 litres.

    Doesn't matter if it's cruising on the highway, punting around in traffic, or flogging it through some twisties. :roll:
  16. My '97 CBR 600 can get 252 kms on a tank. But then somebody has to ride to a servo and back one handed with a jerry can. Possibly 200kms before reserve - about 14l.
  17. 320kms on a tank from the GTR, maybe more if it's straight highway riding.
    Oh, and that's a 27 litre tank!

    Regards, Andrew.
  18. bwahahaha!! so does this come with a list of people to thank?? im sure it does.
    okay, i dont have a bike, i just came in here to take the piss out of port :D :p

    get 450k's out of a tank in the rex though :D 60 litre tank, but i dont go near the low fuel light so probably use about 50 litres.
  19. Blue, my consumption went through the the roof after I installed the PCIII. So I am hoping it will improve when I get around to getting a custom map. It was closer to 300 k's per 21 litres before.
  20. My Blackbird (Fuel Infected)

    City = 320km

    Hwy = 400km and its getting urgent
