TE610 reserve light
« on: February 22, 2012, 06:15:33 pm »
I see there is no reserve, only a warning light which should give an extra 3 L. Is the warning light connected to one of the petcocks ? I have done 202 km and no warning light yet ? Unless the reserve light is stuffed I'm impressed with the consumption so far  :biggrin:

Thats bloody good!

Mine used to come on somewhere around 190!  (After I did the power up)

If you add the JD Tiuner apparently it gets worse!

Well I have the carb and although it's the mother of all performance upgrades for any carbed bike I have seen amazing fuel consumption from them. Runner once got 25km/l on a trip with his XR650. I have not filled up to check but I reckon I will get at least 20km/l.

Filled up today, 9.6L and the speedo said I have done 231 km. The reserve light just came on, pretty happy with 24km/l.

24km/l is excellent, you clearly don't ride like I do. Lucky if I get 18. I just keep pulling the elastic and enjoying the acceleration....that's why the original Karoo backtyre only got 1200km. This thing just spins everywhere! TE610 rulz.
18 till I die.

Funny thing is although the FCR is seen as a performance carb I have gotten excellant fuel consumption on it with every single bike I had :

DRZ440 (23 km/l)
KTM525 (22 km/l)
TE610 (24 km/l)
CRF450X (26 km/l)
