Current ride: Buell 1125R

Been suffering with low tank range and no reserve, decided to investigate tonight, took fuel tap to bits, prodded and poked and now get 100 miles before reserve instead of 75 miles and reserve now works so all in should be good for 120ish without stopping.

I see this all the time now with modern fuels......also the paint 'bubbling' thing.....my S1W went 13 years with no 'bubbling' whatsoever....took it to Em's day in 2011 after a years lay up and within 2 weeks the tank looked like the elephant man :x

Range on all my manta tank bikes is 120 to reserve/fuel lamp.......doesn't matter how you ride them :)
