« on: August 11, 2014, 08:31:45 PM »
Im a lurker at the moment & on my present bike I usually cruise between 70 & 75 mph if I do that on cb500x will it do 200 miles between fill ups?

rigger jim, if you are running that in 6th gear I think you will do quite a bit over 200 miles on a tank.  I have been doing some 140 mile round trips lately and have a lot of fuel left after each one.

I get between 240-250 to each tank full and that is a mix of fun riding and daily commuting of which the majority is fast A roads. Mpg is averaging just over 80 - am very happy with that!

you may hit reserve. it depends on head wind and conditions.

i am amazed/ disbelieving about a 300+tank range.

certainly not at 75. i would think a more common figure would be 65-70 mpg @14 ltr refill = 200-215 tank range.

I didn't mean riding at 75mph, just that I normally get 300 miles from a tank. No city traffic on my commute to work, sit at 50-60mph on country roads and occasionally 75mph on straights on a sunny day.

250 miles before the bike starts flashing Empty. Daily grind mixed with some weekend fun. :821:
