    Hi there The fuel consumption on my 1998 F650 is a bit high (6.5 to 7 liters/100km, which translates to 33-36 mpg). I’ve gotten it down to 4.8 l/100 km once, but I don’t quite remember what I did different. I’ve been fiddling around with the idle speed adjuster, but it seems like the choke is...

    Hello Fellow F540 ST riders. I now have a good enough rev-counter reading to say that lowering the gearing means 70mph is around 5000 rpm. which is reasonable. It certainly helps the low speed riding in traffic and just about manages 40mph in top gear on the flat. Slightly better...

    I don't know the models very well but which bikes get very good fuel economy? i.e. 70mpg or better possibly - all of the fuel injected ones? How much would I need to pay for one (minimum) with say 25K miles or less and preferably with suspension that is better for off road. Where is the best...

    Dear all, another one of my infrequent visits but I would be grateful for advice. I am getting concerned about the mpg on my 99 funduro. It went onto reserve this week at about 136 miles. I ran it to 162 and Ive just put 16.3 litres in it. I should say that last time I only filled it as far as...

    Well I filled up today and have done something I don't usually do - worked out my average MPG. 74.9 MPG. As I usually put in about £10.50 every 180 miles this is obviously quite a regular average. My day to day riding is a mix of up to 60mph country roads, town roads and dual carriageway...

    So - I habitually run my F650 until the clock (in KM) shows 240, then fill up. Usually this costs me about ?12, maximum of about ?14 when I run it down to fumes. For the last few visits to the petrol pump it's cost me around ?8, same mileage. (kilometrage). Yesterday on a short motorway jaunt I...

    I've just filled up my F650ST for the 2nd time since buying it, and thought "I'm gonna check me MPG it seems low" 45mpg that upset me some what. What should it do? I was hoping around 60mpg

    Hi Met a guy at the lights today near Stockwell - who was on the exact same bike - same colour (Silver) and had a quick chat at the lights - as it is not every day you pull up next to another Scarver at the lights let alone one the same colour. He mentioned that through town he got 80mpg which...

    Sorry to sound like a complete dunce :doh: When I picked up my DAKAR from the dealers they told me the fuel light would come on around the 130 mile mark, I have just passed the 160 mile mark and still no fuel light :shock: . Can you advise on the real world figures and not the dealer figures
