1190 Adventure - 60kms and still full bars

I filled the tank up, and have ridden 60kms and the indicator bars are still fully lit. I wonder if once it starts to drop it drops rapidly...


Like the clicking sound on accelerating - I'm not the techy type but curious about what makes that sound in the engine if anyone can share. Just want to know more about my bike beyond the indicator switch :)

There are butterfly valves in the throttle bodies that operate at low rpm. They are controlled by the ecu and when the solenoids open and close them they are silly loud.

Lol - I've done a few more km's in distance than the 60 on this tank. Only started noticing the movement of lack of it in the fuel indicator. One thing for certain, every time I stop the bike to fill up or pit stop people come an d admire the orange beauty. :)

Lots of gear changing less cruising on 5/6. Definitely not going fast just enjoying rapid acceleration which I know is bad for consumption. Anyway I was more curious about the fuel indicator and how accurate it was.
