KTM 690 Reserve tank
« on: May 09, 2017, 02:10:27 pm »
Just out of curiosity...

How far can you guys still go when the low fuel orange light comes on?

As soon as mine comes on, I start looking for a garage, I don't want to take any chances and end up sitting next to the road with no fuel...

Yeah I got about 220km out of the last trip. I have a extra fuel tank fitted from the previous owner, but want to take it off, it makes the bike look damn ugly!

When it goes on reserve I have 2 liters left.  40-50 kilometers depending on wind, terrain etc.
