  • Jwtk Have you run your bike out of fuel?

    I ran out of fuel on my XR650r on the way to a ride today, the first time I've been caught out like that.
    Luckily it was just around the corner from a fuel station but I was wondering how many of you guys have been caught before and had to push your ride?

    Ask Harns though he didn't have to push it

      I ran out in the middle of the sticks on a ZX2 of a friends. Luckily it was a bike/car cruze and someone was clever enough to carry a jerry can

        Had just picked up my brand new VTR, got so excited, forgot it needed fuel, got stranded on the freeway

          Never run all the way out.. Run it to reserve a few times on the 250 though.

              Twice

              First time was about 30kms out of Willcanya(sp) its about 200kms out of Broken Hill.
              I had to push my bike fully loaded about 5kms before i got a lift into town with a truck driver.

              Second time was about 40kms out of Ceduna.
              This time i had spare fuel with me.

                          once, and the bike died exactly at the fuel station, so no pushing for me.^_^

                            FJ1200s have a funny little setup. Fuel light sensor is connected to a chip which disables the fuel pump, unless the reserve is switched on.

                            In 90&#37; of FJ1200s this simply no longer works. Bike starves and stutters it's because the tank is empty.

                            I discovered this after pushing the big old bus the best part of a kilometre to find fuel about a week after I bought it.

                              Once on the bike (all downhill to the jerry can waiting for me at work) but heaps of times on the scooter. If you were one part of a couple making out in Hyde Park at about 11.30pm last year sometime wondering why a scooter was silently rolling down the hill through the park then now you know
