I was just wondering what kind of range you guys are getting out of your Stryker. For me, the LCD display switches to the 1/4 tank indicator at about 95 mi. I usually ignore that and wait for the fuel light to come on. This happens at about 130 mi. Then the LCD starts counting up to show how many miles you've gone on reserve tank. I think the farthest I've gone on that counter is 9.2 mi. So in total, my farthest on a tank was 139.2 mi.

Are you seeing similar numbers?

I rode on some back roads, nothing real hard, not much city traffic and I put about 130 miles on a full tank. If I remember correctly, it took about 2.8 gallons to top off the tank.

See, now that seems weird to me because Yamaha has the Stryker listed at smaller tank and less gas mileage, but this weekend Desiree and I filled up at the same time and went on the same ride. I came dangerously close to pushing my Raider. I was about 14 miles with the light on. Max I've done is 18 so far. Her light never came on.

The scariest part is we were heading in from the desert and pushing it would've really been a b!tch. We were no where near a gas station.

Looking at Yamaha's specs here: http://www.starmotorcycles.com/star/products/modelspeccompare/653/1957/0/compare.aspx

They say the tank is only 0.1 gal smaller than a Raider and only 1.1 less mpg.

If you go by their numbers, 4 gal x 40.9 miles/gal = 163.6 miles range. Of course, to achieve that you would have to burn every drop of fuel in the tank and be riding in a way to get max miles/gal. We probably wont ever be able to make it 160, but I was kind of hoping I could make 150.

I figure it this way... It's better mileage than the V-Max.

That's cool that it gets over 100 miles... My drive to work is 52 miles each way currently so if I were to get one of these I'll know that I can make it to and from work without having to fill up!

Oh nooooooo don't say that. I love that bike!
I know, but have you looked at the specs. It gets about half of what the Raider does. It pretty much has to. Smaller engine and way more horsepower.

Deja, you might have to get it lowered for you to comfotably ride it. I'm 6 1" and could not sit flatfooted on one.???

I have my Stryker since I got back from deployment in Nov 2010 and I noticed that in the city riding used to get me only about 130 Miles, I got 2000 miles behind me now on my Stryker and on my last trip I got 198 miles out of a tank and fuel light did not come on jet when I re fueld. So on the interstate/ country roads way good milage, I was surprised!!! I love this Bike ;)

the yammi fuel gauge does take some getting use to.
RedStar- Have you seen the Stryker gauge? It's nothing like the Raider. It's a digital gauge on the speedo. You have to select it to see it and it just shows a number of "o" characters that go from E to F. (EoooooF) It's probably more accurate than the Raider. I swear once I get below half a tank the Raider is just weird to read. When I first bought it I kept stopping for gas thinking that the 3/4 mark was half way.

I believe the V-Star 1300 has the same gauge.

Yeah, the digital gauge shows little Os, but there are only 4 of them (EooooF). That's why I was considering them to be 1/4 tank each.

I never got a 1/4 tank indication
If you are on one of the other displays (time, tripometer, odometer) when your fuel gauge goes to just one O (Eo F). Then it automatically switches to the fuel indicator display. This is what I was calling the 1/4 tank indication.

It will stay on that display unless you press select to change it back (I like to have mine on the clock).
