granted i'm in CA and have the smaller tank, but my light routinely comes on at around 110-120, and that's with relatively conservative highway riding. been contemplating going with 44 teeth in the rear from my stock naked sprocket.
aerodynamics kill milage for the SV on the highway,Benda said:like others, i NORMALLY get 140-150 miles before the light comes on (03 naked). in june i took a long highway ride (like 6 hours) going about 85-95 mph indicated most of the way and the light would be coming on at 120 miles if not sooner.
i've never gone more than 160 miles before seeing the light come on.
i got the best mileage of my life during those first 600-1000 miles. 55-60.slappermouth said:I wouldn't say that I'm an agressive rider. But I have been riding it to work a lot lately and its a lot of stop and go.
Since I haven't even hit 600 miles on the thing yet, I've been shifting at ~5k, and holding steady at around 3 - 4k when riding steady.
Maybe I just need to lose some weight.
I've got the bike scheduled for my 600 mi maintenance at the dealer...maybe I'll ask them about it.
no, I said aerodynamics killls the milage, yes, for me, that's on the highway, I can't tuck in like a 200lb rider I am steady on throttle no matter what road, I ride pace, so I get my best fuel economy when I am putting around 45-50mph on secondary & local roadsmrlucky2u said:? I notice better gas milage on the highway. Or are you speaking just for the 2nd gens?
