On my 1500 classic, I had filled the tank whilst on the kick stand
to within an inch or so of the top of the hole,
Ran a total of 108 miles before she quit, switche to reserve
stopped to get fuel and it took little over 3 gallons
this sound about right on a new motor?

Gas Mileage


Bikes are different on gas mileage. Every couple of times you fill up the tank, set your odometer to zero...then when you hit reserve make a note of what the mileage is...After a couple of times you should know how much mileage you will get. Macks bike gets between 50 and 70 mph using premium gas. Variance is how you ride, stop and go, open highway, and wind conditions.

We always burn premium gas (93 octane) in the bikes they run much better. My 750 just got tuned up so I am recalculating the mileage on it.
