701 Fuel consumption
« on: April 26, 2018, 01:06:30 pm »
So I know with this hooligan bike fuel consumption should not be discussed...

But, I have done 600km on the bike since new and have done on average 230km before I filled up with about 9.6 L of fuel. Have not ridden it till the reserve light comes on. That is around 24 km/L  :eek7:

And I am not riding like a grandpa...Trying a hard(ish) break in method. Accelerating and decelerating the whole time with minimal constant rpm riding. Lots of hard accelerating as well through the gears.

Consumption therefore is very good to me.

I get the light on after around 210/220 kms, after which I rode (a slow 100 km/h on a tarred road) 43 kms to the nearest/next fuelpump.
Unfortunately I didn't have enough cash to fill it up completely, otherwise I would have know the consumption.
Can't wait to install my 5.5L auxiliary Rade tank - which I'll not use (keep fueltap closed) until the main tank will go bone-dry, so as to determine the actual consumption hence range.
Mind, say 230km / 12.5L (effective tank-contents) = 18.4 km/L, not too bad I think.
Oh, no idea if the odo is accurate yet, but the fun-factor is big enough.

I saw 175 km/h for a second on the speedo, then I tapped off and there was a bit more to come still - your max is?

Coming back from the Cederberg last weekend riding like an old man at around 90-110km/h my 690 averaged 26km/l. They can be light on fuel if you don't twist their ear all the time  :thumleft:

I chickened out at 165 km/h.  :-[ But it gets there quite fast :ricky: Definitely a lot of pull left at 165 though. Will try a top end run soon...Just need something to hide from the wind a bit :imaposer:

Sounds similar to what I am getting. Will be interesting to see if the akrapovic fuel map increases the consumption?

Just need something to hide from the wind a bit

I'm actually surprised how much wind that "number-plate" deflects - definitely no windscreen needed!
When I lean forward at speed I feel the windblast head-on, but one never does this so all's fine.
I was sitting normally, no crouching or why, and as you say this speed came up quick - so I tapped off, it's no supersport after all.
Need to install the Scotts submount assembly first, during fast runs on loose gravel the handlebar oscillates at times, don't want that happening on tar  ;)

Of course your consumption will go up when you have 'more power' dialed in..... you want to wheely in 5th & 6th also?  :P

The morning commutes here in Secunda are getting colder, so I might add a 690 windscreen just to take the blast of my chest. Maybe I am just getting old  :patch:

I just want to feel if the akra map does anything actually. Otherwise I will just have the original map loaded again. More than enough power! I suck at wheelies, need all the help I can get  :imaposer:

Factory assembly fault. Part of swing arm assembly missing which caused swing arm play which in turn “pressed into engine casing and clutch cover causing constant oil leak from motor.

Did a recent run of 1500km's around the Western Cape. Certainly wasn't driving slowly ... mostly dirt.

Tar sitting at about 130km/h I get about 20km/l
Riding it fairly hard on dirt I get about 16-18km/l

I do have the full omega kit, so bike is a little heavier.

Top speed thus far is 172km/h

Got my new to me scoot on Thursday and having an absolute blast. The first tank did 187km  till light on and put 10l fuel. Did Canola run on Saturday in muddy conditions then rode back to Somerset west and light came on at 154km :o filled 11l and did 176km. Mine is a 17 with full Acro kit and the airbox makes more noise than the exhaust >:D

Mayhem, just out of experience here... Check your front wheel circumference on your speedometer. Mine was set on supermoto size and I got about 170km before the light came on.

This weekend I got 230km and the light still hadn't come on. Even when flogging the bike you should easily get 200 kays before the light.  :thumleft:

I cant seem to find how to check what front wheel size is set up on the dash. I can only find the change between Km/h / M/h and mine is set to Km/h. i only got 155km on this last tank before light on :eek7:

Thanks, have checked the video out and my speedo is correct.
I've fitted the Rade under seat tank and on the first test ride got 300km on 16l that's around 18 km/l
