Fuel Consumption ... 690R
« on: June 13, 2017, 06:40:21 am »
Hey guys,

So I commute with my 690R, and normally at around 205km the fuel light comes on... Now it comes on at 190km... The only thing that I changed was the oil, I put a higher grade oil in..Bike is currently on 7500km..  Is my girl due for a service? or did I miss something...

the colder weather causes the tank to shrink :biggrin:

No idea why but after first service on the husky ive seen the same,probably because of riding style change ???

What oil did you go to?  And did you not perhaps add too much?

Sorry, what is this issue with too much oil?  And how much too much?
