KRS/GT how far on a full tank?
Sorry if this has been a topic of discussion in the past. I know it is being discussed on most bike forums quite often.
Overtime I have been reading few reviews on the K1200 bikes and I read more than in one occasion that the gas consumption range of the KRS/GT is between 45-to 54 MPG, depending on the riding conditions. If that is true I have some concern that my '03 GT is consuming more gas that it is supposed to.
Okay, my average speed is between 65 to 80 but I ride mostly on Highways. The reserve light come on after 160-163 miles of a very full tank. I don't know how much reserve there is left once the light comes on, but if it is anything like my K100LT I couldn't ride more that 25 miles on reserve. I had a '03 KRS before which I sold, but even with that bike I wasn't able to make 180 miles before refilling.
In general, does anyone know how much useful gas is still left in the tank once the reserve light comes one? How many miles could I safely ride before refilling?
TIA for sharing your experiences.
