PostSubject: A couple of questions for U.S. riders   Sun Apr 17, 2016 8:19 am

Still trying to learn the G.

1. If my fuel light came on at 127mi and the reserve started counting about a mile later then about how far can I go on the reserve? When I got the bike it had been sitting and I want to get as much out of the tank as possible. Also would like to know where the
end is.

2. With stock sized tires aboutt how much off is the speedo at 70mph? I'm guessing about the same 5mph as our BMW car.

Thanks.

1. Reserve is about .5gal. At your economy of about 38mpg, that's about 19mi range.
2. I've noticed a 3-5% error in the speedo compared to my wife's GPS when she's pacing me. It has been hard to get a consistent error, so I normally assume less than the typical 5% European delta and go with the 3%. So at 70mph, that would be ~67.9mph.

Perfect thanks. So I am going too fast on 55mph roads!

Only going too fast if you are caught

I've been caught twice within the last year. "I swear officer, I had no idea I was going that fast. It's just is so smooth, felt like 60. not 80mph." ;-{

I made it 20 miles on my reserve before I had to push. My GRiSO 1100 averages about 42 mpg.

I took it to 17.4 so I know I can do that!

Had another problem though. SC roads are in terrible shape and I hit a decent pothole at speed. Sunday morning the tire was totally flat. Pumped it up and soaped it only to find it was one of my spoke nipples leaking. My dial a friend suggesting backing it out then tightening it and luckily that did the trick. I've never paid much attention to my EV's pressures (the spokes go outside of the rims) but I think I will watch the GRiSO a little more closely.
