Meaning the fuel indicator will light up once the reserve petrol are going to be used up? roughly abt how many km?

Actually should not call that "RESERVED" fuel.

 

It is a low fuel warning light, similar to car, what light is on, you should top up petrol.

 

From the spec, the "low fuel light" on, the tank should have about 5L of petrol.

 

If you milleage is 20km per L, so, approxiamately still last for 100km.....

Once I was running out of fuel at 70km only (tyres not enough pressure..) :mad:

 

Yesterday I went to JB to pump..I was ard 545km and pumped in 21L of petrol...issit normal?

 

So far, my best milleage is 444km to hit "reserve".

oh no...perhaps my eyes playing trick on me..hee..anyway I just topped up full tank last night..I will monitor the mileage again...

 

May I know where to get those blind spot mirrors whereby mount on top of the original mirrors? Like those used in driving centres one...thinking of going to buy tmr....the round type to be pasted on the original mirror itself seems small and covered almost 1/3 of the mirror liao.. :mad:

the brake pad so ex????

it's 4 front onli or front n rear????

i thought i pair cost abt 60-80????

i changed 3 pairs... 2 front n 1 rear...

 

depending on the shop u go to.....

 

Wot they did was change the pads... n also the brake fluid for me.... mine was quite a bargain lahh.... if im not wrong..... :confused:

 

so if u look on the higher side like 1 pair cost $70.... 3 pairs cost around $210... if plus workmanship... u do ya maths.....

 

Do not DIY ur ST unless you are an expert like our Towkay Simon here.. heheh :smile:

 

U rather u spent abit more... den save abit... and end up spending a whole lot more.... right?? :goodluck:

Yo cool79...

 

To Each his Own lah...

 

Cant compare a Sport Bike and a Touring beaST...

 

If u have doubt , play save ...and dont confuse yourself...

Find out more about the beaST before committing into this investment

 

As far as i am know... I never regret getting this Monster since i started to

dream of getting it from 1994... and i only got it from 2001...

 

Good Luck

ST1100 don speed like a black bird, cant pick up like a CBR, cant reach 300km /hr

 

but ST1100 can let u sit striaght up with alot of comfort at 220 km/hr and if road condition allows it can last u for long time which i call holding power, not to the machine onli, but to its rider too.

 

ST1100 is a tourer machine, it has take away it top speed to provide more mid range power for more touring comfort.

 

We ride ST1100 is not because we don like speed, but we are playing a balance of comfort and speed. We wan to have space to put our touring stuff, we wan to have space for shopping bage. We wan nature element protection while we r on tour, ST1100 wind shield is doing its job very well.

just imagine, u had pack five days of clothing, 2 pair of shoe, personal entertainmen device, 1 bottle of drinking water, some can food...! u fit all onto ur bike without the fear of dropping while speeding on the highway, without the worry of people stealing ur stuff while u r way from ur bike. and most of all the BOX is design to fit the bike to its most advantage position.

 

btw ur gf will be happy too, as the pillon seat is big enough to move butt around and adjustment of comfort during long journy. it will minimise the complain from the pillon... heeeee....!

 

cornering for ST is really up to the rider, i had a fren who did cornering on ST with its side box almost touch the ground....! it can go extreme too... :)

 

should u get ST11? my ans is yes.....

we wan u to share the same joy a us.

 

during this decision making period, we will be there to help u to see the advantage and the weakness of ST1100....!

 

we wan u to love this machine and no regret on getting the machine...!

 

anyway really wish u becoming one of us!

 

:cheer:

 

heee.... sorry for the long msg.....!

 

 

:cheeky:

No worry, the 1100cc V4 engine can produce more than 100hp, have enough torque to pull away faster than most of the vehicles on the road.

 

top speed... don knoe le.... the most i try was abt 250++... but handlebar start to move liao

 

Cannot compare a touring bike with a sports bike. Just like you cannot compare a 7-seats MPV to a WRX ....

 

If you still enjoying more on high speeding riding, challenge corner, you should consider BlackBird instead.....

Well said ...shadowman Vic...

 

my pllions do complain about the comfort behind me...

they say easily fell asleep...

 

To be running 250km/hr ????? Will that be Comfort Touring???

Can u last all the to KL non stop at that speed???...

Anyway , u need to buy new meter soon if ST goes 250km/hr...

 

Our Fuel Capacity is 28 litres ... Highway consumption is

estimated distance for 1litre = 20km....

 

So the beaST give u the distances with the comfort...

 

If cool79 is not in a hurry to change now... then wait for more comments

from your friends and all........

 

Always compare Apple to Apple...

Just some additional information..... if u gonna do pick up like those sport bike....drag at the first few gears u will end up with 14~18km/l of fuel consumption. But at the high gear (5th gear) or smoothly accleration, u will have a better F.C.

 

And yes, ST still can do cornering but don't push it to hard (it not a sport bike), those plastic parts don't come cheap ( u know wat I mean).

BT020 = mid range mileage, $300plus, some ppl complain handle bar wobble after high mileage to usage.

ME Z4 = mid range mileage, $300 plus, some ppl complain handle bar wobble after high mileage to usage. ( for me had try out, find it still ok if take care of the tires air pressure)

ME33 = high mileage, $300 plus, uneven tires wear.

dargon GTS = lower mileage, $400 plus, good grid, handle bar will not wobble( feedback from some rider)

macadam = super high mileage, $300 plus, good for freq. tourer.
