I have owned my Z for a almost 3 weeks. I have around 215 miles on it. The first time the dealer filled it up. I got 75 miles on the bike before it was on the last bar and flashing. I was like WTF.


So I filled it to the top and it took around 1.3 gallons. Drove it again till it was flashing with one bar. I got 135 mile on it that time. Filled up and it took 1.345 gallons.

So now I am staring my 3rd tank. Hoping it continues to improve. With my last results would a good guess be that I probably would have gotten close to 180 on a full tank. I am thinking i could have maybe gone another 50 miles.

107 miles and took 1.03 gallons to fill up. That's my first tank and I rode it 40 miles home from the shop, at high rpms. No break in.
