I've gone about 21 miles with the light on. I didn't push it or rev it, just out in nowhere and wanted to make it to a gas station. I'm not saying that's how far you'll get, but I made it that far - once. Lessons have been learned.

I have been 28 miles on mine...BUT...I know when I fill up I put about 4 gallons in, so that means that there is still .5 gal left in there, which is another 15 miles or so....BUT, I wouldn't trust it :)

20 miles or so, be safe...remember, warming up and sitting at lights is burning fuel, and not adding miles ;) ;)

Well.. I can go a long ways lol.. 80-100.. But of course, my fuel light comes on after 2.2-2.3 gallons of fuel used (half tank).. Always seemed weird to me :roll:

Mine kicks in at right around 3.5 gallons, and I have gone as far as 35 miles on res. And it only took 3.87 gal to fill it up. But I live in Texas, and variances in altitude will have different affects on fuel consumption as well as riding habits... YEA!

well

well then you dont need to worry about it lol,, nah forreal tho if you have your owners manual it tells you how much you have in the tank when the reserve light comes on... with that you should be about able to figure out the milieage you have left in the tank when the reserve light comes on!!!!!

if you dont have your owner manual you can down load it from yammi hawwwwww

Well I KNOW my reserve comes on @ 2.2-2.3 gallons.. For 5 straight fill-ups, I gas'ed right when the light came on, and it only took that amount.. Ive also gone nearly 100 miles on reserve (with very conservative riding, 2 upshifts @ once instead of one, cruise town in 6th).. Best Ive ever done is around 200 miles on a tank..

that's just nuts. Best that I've done was 65 or so I think... and that was highway riding.

My light comes on right at 3.5 used up. I checked my fuel milage the other day, I get 41 mpg, and that's with only a little over 300 miles on the bike.

Not really applicaple for the street, but during last years Toyota 200 my 03 r6 went 22.6 miles at race pace then ran out, leaving me to coast in to the pits losing a couple of laps. but that's race gas and max rpm's.
