Re: Gas gauge
The gauge tends to linger on the full side for quite a while and once it moves past the half way mark tends to fall off rapidly. The differences noted between the two riders in gas mileage is not a result of a faulty gaige but usually the difference in riding styles and conditions.
I've run the tank down to 3.506 gallons at fill-up and it did hang in their in the red zone quite a while!
