I was wondering what all you riders with cbr's get for gas mileage? I ride a 2000 cbr f4 (not the I) and my gas light is comming on when ever i'm at a stop at 200Klicks does this seem right? how far have people gone on a tank?
thanks

Sounds about the same, I had an 02 F4i and the most I ever got out of a tank was maybe 220 kms...I filled up around 200

Yea, that sounds about right. I ride a 600RR and I get around 200 somethin KMs on it. My tanks very small.

Yep. My 2006 F4i gets around 200kms before the reserve lights come on. Around 230 with all highway riding. My reserve light seems to come on with around 5 litres left in the tank (i've had all 4 bars flashing at me, and still only got 15 litres in the tank (3 left)).

i think you guys are forgetting how MUCH gas you put in... I only get 175 KMs, i can stretch it a ltitle more, but I only put in $8 or so, at .97 cents/liter

Ive put in $11 before, if you lift the nozzle up, and cram tons of gas in it, i usually dont do that though,

Also don't get off your bike to fill up, sit on it. With the bike straight up you can get more gas in it...175 kms doesnt sound right you should be getting more out of it than that...and $11 is the most amount you've put in before? I've put $16+ in before....the prices were a little higher than they are now but still

my 02 F4i gets 180km when the fuel light comes on. Hindle can and down a tooth on the front and up two on the back has given me shit mileage... or kilometerage I guess.

i use the high octane but i did get off to fill teh bike. i was thinkin about that afterwards (since the manual says to check fluids when teh bikes straight) But i also have one down front and one up rear but everythgin else is stock. just checkin to make sure my bike isnt really ill or anything.

oh and also starting it in like 0 degree weather hoe long does it take to turn over? took me like 6 tries before it kicked.

but thanks for the replies i have more of piece of mind now! :rockon

oh yeah are there any gloves, liners, or glove overs out there that work well in uber cold weather?

You should be able to get more than 200 km before the warning light comes on. What octane gasoline are you using?

i use premium, some times regular. I always sit on it when filling up, but like i said, i usually only put MAX ive put in is $11....guess thats not that full?
But then again, $11 gets me around 175 KMS

i'm same with pierre.... around 170-180kms and the light goes on.....

btw u guys said 4 bars are flashing?! how does that work...... mine goes from like 7-8 bars...... then one bar flashing..... even with the one bar flashing, i can only put 11 bucks.... so personally...... when the light flashes, i still have 30% fuel left....... so basically 220-230km from full tank to dried boneD

and how you pump the fuel by sitting down..... my number 1 concern that i learned is to not drip the oil at any parts....... so i do it the standing way

Okay i gues i just drive crazy stupid and fast then or im just really fucking heavy, becuase i only get about 130k out my bike before the reserves come on...
i have never had the reserve light come on after 150k that is as far as i pushed my bike before it came on :| is there something wrong with my bike? or do i just go far to fast on my bike :(

What do you weigh? Your weight effects the mileage a lot. Plus if you rev your motor up high all the time too.

btw, bikes are supposed to go faster than cars....... i want to achive that, but still haven't gotten that point..... my first week, i reved to my desire until i was faster than all others but then...... that's not big deal, any fool can do that

my question is..... i've started to go as smooth as i can...... but shit, i'm damn slow lol.....

from a standing start, when do you guys change gears?

for me... in the smooth sense
1st gear....... reved up smoothly..... about 2 seconds..... 30-40km/h
2nd gear..... releasing the clutch slowly.... wasted 1 second..... throttle slowly, trying to match rpm......

what a waste of time, any tips on going faster than cagers while still smooth?
