    I don't know if you have an FI / carbs or you ride REALLY hard but that is low for "normal" mixed use.

    If you have a FI you may need a new FPR - Fuel Pressure Regulator.

    If you have carbs someone may have put too big jets in or a float is stuck.

    Either way, your mix is off unless you cruise at the 120mph mark.

    I have a higher pressure FPR, 16/47 gearing, and my true gps miles on the highway at 80mph is 170-180 miles till flash +40 miles till empty.

    A heavy throttle hand on my 02 FI bird will release hydrocarbons at an alarming rate. I have seen the low fuel light come on @ 145 miles. This gives about 25 miles to go before coasting to a stop.

    On the other hand, slabbing a lot and modulating the throttle without skinning it back to the stop will net about 185 miles from a tank before the light starts to blink.

    I once got 204 miles out of a tank, and didn't run out of fuel, but when I saw the light come on I stayed under 45 mph since the next gas station was 30 miles away.

    I did run out on one local ride @ 194 miles indicated, the light coming on around 160 miles on the trip meter.

    So I usually average about 34 miles to a gallon now. After executing a Springer Spaniel a few years back, I toned down my riding style. Low and behold---better mileage from a tank, and tires! Go figure!

    155 city driving and around 220 miles highway at 70-80 mph. These are very consistant numbers that never vary by much on my FI Bird.
    2001 Honda Blackbird, flat black in color, clear front turn signals, K/N air filter for ease of maintanence, lowered foot pegs, cruise control, Givi center hard/side bags. Turbo charged 10 lbs, PC3 programmer, Dyno tuned, Yoshi muffler, pimpbike undertail, Delinked brakes. LOTS OF FUN!!!!

    I've made close to 400 kms on a full tank. But I was nervous.

    160-170 to the light, seen 184 on a single journey mixed roads.
    my daily commute is 41 miles each way so, day 2 sees me filling up, doesn't seem to matter that much how heavy handed I am!

    Re: how many miles per tank??

    i average about 140 in the city, about 170 on the highway doing about 80-90.

    I am sure it would be high if i rode at 55mph, but that aint happening.

    Re: how many miles per tank??

    i did a test.filled tank full of petrol(tank is 24L) Drove 200km half of it on motorway with average speed of 70-75 miles.After those 200km i filled tank to the fullest with 11.53L of petrol.thats very good,but hard to stick to this speed.
    Did same route couple of months ago but all motorway with speed between 200-250km/h red light came on after an about 180km.

    Re: how many miles per tank??

    The red light on my bird generally starts flashing around 300k's. this week it started to flash at 306k's and i filled up at 360k's it took 21.5 liters. the bike suposedley has a 23 L tank but i guess is that not all of it is usable. not bad economy for the power you get. I ride about 70k's a day with speeds varying between 60k & 100k zones. Oh and the occasional blast to double or so that, Ha Ha.

    Re: how many miles per tank??

    I'll second Backstreet's mention of a fuel pressure regulator. I was seeing 130 - 150kms to flash. Replaced the FPR and I went over 250 and still had 2 bars.

    OP, are your pipes sooty?
    Where are we going...and what am I doing in this hand basket??
