Me petrol Tanker pics!

On full lock the indicator button/starter button touches the tank so will have to sort that out. Not bothered right now tho ha!

Blends in much better when paint matched .... So how far do you think it get you before red light. Let's have a storm sweep stake :D

I vote 210 miles, now that is serious

i think it looks good mate, and 200 miles to a tank is great...... :thumbup:

Cheers guys, I can deffo tell a big difference when I'm sat on it but it does feel nice and not too big. Deffo won't be putting a tank bag in it tho lol, I'll need a cushion under me butt lol!

I can't wait to fill it and see how many miles ill get from it! I'm going to have to save my money up to fill it lol! Going to monitor the mileage and ill post it on here and let you know.

The mileage 'issue' was really starting to annoy me and was thinking of swapping it (really didn't want to tho!) but now Iv got more range it feels like a new bike!

170 and the red light will come on. Be careful not spill any petrol on the nice fresh lacquer. Even though it should be petrol resistant, it's still fresh and the longer you wait the better and watch out for bird sh1t. :lol:

Yeah I'm still a bit worried of catching it and was careful not to spill any petrol on it as I was swilling it out.

It must have been a fireblade top and a firestorm bottom then.
