    Milage variance with bigger tires?

    I used to get to about 114 miles before the fuel light came on with the stock tires, now I have a 170 on the rear, 150 on the front and it comes on around 90 miles? Does this sound right? Can someone explain it to me?

    high milage on 2005

    I'm looking at a 2005 max with 42000 miles. Bike is extremely clean and appears well maintained. Should I be concerned with this high milage. Adult owned, original owner, clean as I've seen

    fuel milage ? part 2

    In my previous post I said i was only getting 80 miles until my fuel light came on, instead of 100 miles. Well I had the carbs adjusted and synced, and it's still the same. I also checked the milage and speedo and that all checked out. What the hell is going on? For a year I was getting the 100...

    Fuel milage ?

    When I bought the bike about a year ago when ever I reached 100 miles my fuel light came on, but know when i hit 80 miles it comes on. What could be the issue here? I recently change the fuel sensor, could that be the problem?
