    Can advise how u know when bike hit reserve? I pump once the gauge starts dancing, can I tahan any longer than that?
    i had met a few dancing guage b4 and draw the conculsions myself.

    scenerio 1: mileage 300km. bike park at carpark, depend on riding style, insert key start ignition, guage started to dance.

    have not touch reserve cos bike park, side stand on, bike tilt to left side. once start engine and bike start rolling, dancing guage stop.

    scenerio 2: mileage 340km to 365km, depend on riding style. travelling along the road. guage dance on and off.

    my opinion. have not touch reserve cos guage start to dance when i corner or rav hard on the trottle.

    scenerio 3: mileage 365km to 380km onwards, depend on riding style. continuous dancing of the guage.

    hit reserve liao. total fuel 18litre. hit reserve at 15litre. total fuel left 3 litre. by calculation, if 25litre per km. still can go for 75 km when continuous dancing off guage is observe.

    Thanks for the detailed description. My gauge dances way before it hits 300 km. It's amazing how some bros here can hit way over 300 km before they need to top up. I will never try to go for 380 km, cause might end up walking to the petrol station... heh heh.

    I ride mostly 110-120 kmh on highways most of the time, and also like to pull away quickly from the lights. But still cannot imagine why my consumption is so high.

    judging from your riding style, if i'm not wrong, your gauge will start dancing at about 270km.
    discipline yourself to ride around less than 5k rpm , that will be 80kmph at hi ways and anyways or less on the next top up. dun drag at all, 3 to 4k rpm change gear. i bet you'll be smiling at the milage u have. i tried once and it goes to about 360km before dancing. btw i weigh 120kgs

    not really, still can change gear smoothly. no doubt that 4 to 5 k is nice. my habit is 5 from 3rd gear onwards.

    ok, will try and save some petrol lah, but really ride to enjoy also, so riding too slow also I think I will find boring after a while. Anyway, I am only half your weight, so maybe can save some petrol there... heh heh.. tks for the tip.

    Many factors contribute to mileage done.

    1) tire pressure
    2) sprockets and chain drive condition. The chain drive is a very essential part of the bike. Take good care of it.
    3) Behaviour of ride. If you average ride above 7rpm, naturally the mileage reduces.
    4) If you pillion alot, it might contribute to the factor. The total weight of the bike have to carry is also one factor.
    5) Carb setting of bike, too rich? Overly rich?
    6) Overall condition of bike. Who knows maybe petrol could be leaking. Check all conditions of fuel hoses periodically.

    More weight = more drag = power loss = turn more throttle to reach your desired range = more gas = bad mileage.

    to add to that,

    7) the type of petrol used
    8) fuel additives.
    9) type of air filter
    10) brake pads rubbing against brake disk at all times (gotta jack up ur bike and spin the wheel to see how much resistance)

    My spec1 uses petrol at average speed between 90-100km (around 6k rpm n below) 22-23km per ltr. On Malaysia highways, above 6.5k rmp, the km drops to 18-19km per ltr. Full tank until it hits reserve, that is the gauge starts to flick at 330km. Anyone has more to share on Super4? I took this measurement for six month on my spec1

    Thanks for all the information given. But from what i know from the manual book. It actually stated the when you turn on your VTEC. actually uses less petrol. NOT TOO sure whether correct or not.
    AS for my case, i open vtec almost everytime on the expressway on gear 6. Or is it my idling speed. which is now above 1000 rpm.

    What is the correct idling speed?
    HOW to adjust it?
    HOW long you all warm up your bike?

    maybe i warm up too long that why my mileage so low.

    bluff bluff bluff Vtec open waste more fuel.
    Travel at low speed can save more than open vtec all the time.
    Tried many test on my Vtec already.
    Best fuel saving method for my bike is
    1) always change gear between 3000rpm to 4000rpm
    2) maintain cruising speed at 6 gear 6000 rpm. around 98-100km/h (TP will not book u for tat speed on expressway anyway.)
    3) always pump your tire to the desire pressure.

    I can hit 360 when top up 16litre of petrol only!

    Blurrblurr, I agree with u. Vtec1 opens@ around 6500rpm uses more petrol. That why on Malaysia highways, I calculate @ 18 & 19km/ltr, less I get caught with empty tank. At what rpm Vtec2 opens, anyone knows. It supposes to open earlier than Vtec1. That why is more powerful than Vtec1 and it consumes more petrol

    discipline yourself to travel at only at about 5k rpm(ie about 80kph only) at sixth gear, change gear at 3rd to 4th gear . u'll surely see an increase in milage. best is to try it after u fill petrol to a full tank.
    u can adjust your idling to about 1k, the knob is somewhere under the carb at the centre. u can't see unless u bend down and peek, the knob is shape like a little tap. on your next trip to a bike shop, ask the frenly mech to show and teach. it's hard for me to really describe how to look for it and turn to adjust.
    warming up takes about 3 to 5 mins, mine takes about one smoking cigarette , if late less than that or just touch the block to feel if it's warm.

    Mine is Vtech2.. Fuel consumption quite good leh, I must say.. Can go up 360-370 km before hitting reserve.. Using Vpower or Shell 98 also the same.. But the thing is I dont open v-tech often.. Usually travel on the expressway around 90 to 96 km/h, just before v-tech opens..

    Mine version S 340Km then hit reserve. Total about 370-380Km for full tank Vpower. Normally change gear at 5rpm for gear 1 & 2. And 4rpm for 3 & 4.

    Mine is when the needle is to the extreme "E", something like when the engine is off.

    ha...
    then i be wasting my money liao
    i only can hit 280km with full tank that include the reserve.... maybe because my motor shop set the idling speed to 1000- 1200 rpm.... whether does it really consume lot of petrol that decrease the mileage?
    From wat i know the rpm should be 800 -900 rpm.
    Please advise thanks you very much.

    That is normal idling range for our bike and doesnt really contribute to fuel consumtion much.Check ur air filter?
