Worn needle and economy not good point to a worn slide guide, emulsion tube, and perhaps slide.

Go standard new one or does someone have a better one in mind?

the only performance mod I found that helped with getting from A to B faster was buying it a 990. Worked wonders!

Fuel usage

Hi Guys

Got myself a 30L safari tank. Looking for distances you guys can get out of 30L of juice.

The trip I'm planning will have the below type of riding.
- black top at speeds around 100kph
- open dirt roads 60-80kph

Will be doing about 5500km over two weeks. Some of the legs have about 400-450k. Between fuel stops.

Any info will be appreciated

Thanks

Which way is the fuel inlet on the carb pointing? up as original or has it been turned onto its side?

I can comforably get 700km and i'm then thinking about filling up. I've ran it and get about 720 to 730 reserve, but I've only done reserve a couple of times. I've never actually ran it dry, so not sure a total amount of km's. Basically, if I'm in the 600km's on the trip meter, i know my distance is a 100km or so and depending where I am, will watch the various petrol stations pass by, but push it until I'm home anyway.

I run a TM40 carb and standard exhaust. I believe I can run the tank dry, but as the previous poster said, if you have the standard carb, you need to get the fuel lines worked out so you don't get air in them, otherwise you'll have a few/several litres left in the tank.

Hope this helps.

PS: practice taking the tank on and off, as its a pain to get back on. Best when tank is empty but for me, a marathon when full.

700ks is bloody good most people I know get under 600 and I've gone on reserve at 520 but at those speeds 550 to 600 would be a safe figure to work on plus the seat will make you stop before that

Milage sounds about right.

I have found that one of those cheap ratchet tiedowns from Supacreep threaded through the front forks and back around the tank can be a big help in positioning the tank to line up the rear bolt holes if you are doing it by yourself. It's easy to cross thread the bolts if you are mucking around trying to push the tank into position and get the bolts started. If the tank won't go on, check that the oil cooler protector hasn't been pushed backwards if you have come off at some stage. It too me a while to figure that one out.

If you find yourself running out of fuel with plenty still in the tank, put a good breath of air into the fuel cap breather tube. This will get you another 10 or 15 k's closer to the servo and you can do it over and over again if you need to. I also do this if the bike has been sitting for a while and is playing hard to strart. Works a treat.

I've read adding heat to it will assist before committing.

Another thing about the Safari, you probably find that you have more than 30 litres. Mine is 34 litreish, but they are commonly known to expand as they age, so this adds distance also.

Mine crimped just a bit. I used a large adjustable spanner and a bit of rag as padding and a quick prayer to the god of speed.

Just in case you are thinking of updating.

It’s Sweet Season Bonus time from Suzuki motorcycles and dealers around the country have embraced the raft of offers available across the motorcycle and ATV range for the remainder of the financial year.

Suzuki is also catering for its extended family of trail and enduro riders, offering even more bang for their buck with a generous $500* Factory Bonus on Suzuki’s most popular street-legal trail bike, the DR650SE.
