I have an 85 700. If I run on the reserve setting, I run out of fuel at approx. 120 miles. On the run setting I get about 93 miles. problem is, I have NEVER put in more than 2.5 gallons after empty on "res". aren't these a 3.5 gallon tank? why would that last gallon be unuseable in my tank?

You might want to pull the petcock and check the filter screen for blockage.

I've only used the reserve twice and both times put in more than 3 gallons.
I can get 115 to 120 miles generally before switching to reserve if I run under65 mph and accelerate gradually. From 70 mph and up the MPG goes down a lot.

Your new so we don't know alot if anything about your bike. For example, I'm shaved & I shimmed my tank higher (where it meets the seat) so the pod filters wouldn't hit. I've lost a bit of my reserve cause of this. So, is you bike modified in any way or stock. if stock, I'd deffinatly check your petcock.

Man that doesn't sound right! lol
