Yep, and those times are gone. If we could have had a freakin' 800 XC back then this conversation would be moot. Move on... learn more, do more, live more.

Safari has a fuel tank out for the Tiger?
8 gal. tank in Black or Natural.
Range would be amazing. 325-375 miles depending...
$875 though!!! Talk about pricey...
I didn't know these were out but Safari's website says they're available.

Yes pretty typical for me, light usually comes on at 150-160 miles. Arrow exhaust and tune.

I've run it down to where the computer has given up trying to calculate miles to empty (<5 it seems to just go blank), and the most gas that I've ever put in is 4.5 gal. During the break in, I went 212 miles on 4.3 gallons (>49mpg). So, I suppose I still had another 3/4 gallon and 20-25 miles or so...

My last fill up, though, I seem to only have gotten 150 miles out of 4 gallons (~38mpg).

Usually 150-165 miles for me before the fuel light comes on. I'll go another 20 mile or so before I fill it (usually about 4gal). What's the word on running 'em down low? I've heard the fuel pump is cooled with that last gallon in the tank.

I concur. I get around 330 kms off a tank with arrow tune and LV pipe. Used to get around 350 with OEM setup.

I might add this is with 1 liter left in the tank and the bike spluttering badly. The last liter seems to be unusable.

Oh and I'm a fat bastard to I use more gas presumably
