I filled up today had 139.9 miles on the tank and it took 3.182 gallons of gas. so I figure I could have gone about 170 if I wanted to push it.

Good info. I'm going to download that Iphone app right now.

So how many miles do you think you have once the light comes on?

Did you check your manual? On pages 4-5 and 4-11 it clearly states that when only one segment remains on the gauge there is 1.32 US Gallons left. I'd say a safe bet is about 40 miles until you're completely empty but for the sake of your fuel pumps health I'd recommend filling up as soon as possible after you reach one segment on the fuel gauge.

No I had been meaning to look at the manual but I keep forgetting when I'm at home. I rode to work today and its at one bar but no light yet.

it comes on when your down to just alittle less then a gallon once it comes on the dispay will change to a fuel trip meter the max I've heard you'll get when the light comes on is around 25 miles or so before empty

Oh the gaslite does come on when you have only E on the gauge and only secondary tank left to go.

This is very good information. Considering from my work the closest gas station is 40 miles. If I ever forget to get gas and the light comes on at work I know im pushing. I noticed a petcock on the bottom of the tank or at least what I think is a petcock. I haven't really looked at it. does it have a reserve setting? or is it just on/off?

Its just an On/Off. Had to look it up in the manual. I Didn't know there was one at all. I assume its mostly used for tank removal.

My display flips over to the 1/4 tank mark when I am down to a fourth of a tank. The light comes when the level still reads a 1/4 tank but about twenty or thirty miles later than the first display switch. I ran mine 17 miles with the warning light on and it took 3.4 gallons. Today it came on and I rode an additional 12 miles and it took 3.26 gallons. My guess would be about 40 "light throttle" miles when the light comes on...

careful guys, my light came on the other day and i was in no man's land just out riding around enjoying the day listening to my music. I took it really easy and as i was pulling in to a gas station with one 22.8 miles since the light came on it started to sputter. I quickly flip it off an coasted in. I had to try and start it 4 times but on the 4th it fired up. Gave myself a little scare. I'm not very mechanical so I called my local dealer and the guy said I hadn't hurt anything but to be careful.
