Hello People,

I have the 2004 ZX-6R....its a 18L Tank cost me aprrox 15$ Premium Gas.
Question how many Miles to the Gallon?

Its BRAND NEW.. i have just over 1000KM and SAT i gots to go Get and oil
change and checkup... This will Be abouts 150$ << Canadian Money.

Right now its alot of GAS ..is this because its new Sorta like CARS
when you buy a new CAR the GAS Mileage sucks

I live in OTTAWA Canada. I wonder how much i could go if i went to Toronto ... its 4 hour drive


Also I kno All Bikes have a RESERVE ... Some bikes you have to Turn on
the RESESRVE Switch. but the KAWI ZX-6R i gues it automatically goe's
on RESERVE... << Also how FAR can you go on the RESERVE when the lights comes


P.S Maintence on the KAWI is quite Expensive. I going for my First check up this weekend. OIL and what ever needs to be Adjusted.

Thanks
Bonz's

My truck gets about 10 miles a gallon with its over sized tires and modified engine, this is a very good reason to get a bike with its 40 and over mpg(thats how much the guy im buying my zx6r said).

Hi Bonzo!

I have a 2003 ZX-6RR with 1500 miles on it and I'm getting around 43 MPG, I can go around 150 Miles when the light comes on and I've gone another 20 miles after that. I've never pushed it anymore than that!

I hope this helps! :D

MILEAGE

Contact PUIG...they carry aftermarket windscreens, or try your favorite manufacturer...the racing windscreens are about 2" taller the the cruising windscreens are just a little taller yet...this will increase your mileage

Yeah Thanks alot .... for you're feedback

I just got the bike a month ago my next door Neighboor has a ninja 500
told me that Gas Mileage will get better @ abouts 4000KM or so.
he says some bikes it takes till 7000KM.

Ok so RESERVE is good to go for 20 miles for sure. thats good to know.
