I recently bought a 2013 S1000RR, 2012 build (0524). Unfortunately I seem to have an issue with possible high fuel consumption and weird range calculations.
At the time of writing, my fuel light just came on after riding about 125km/77 miles. I've ridden an additional 25km/15.5miles (to about approx. 94 miles) when the range indicated about 10 miles left. When refueling, the manual tells me I have a ~17.5liter/4.6 gallon tank. When fueling up, only 3 gallons went in before the pump telling me the bike was full.
So in summary:
- Fuel indicator/range came on after 125km/77miles
- Driven an additional 25km/15.5miles until refueling
- Filled her up with 11liters/3 gallons at the most
This would indicate an overhead of about 6liters/1.6gallons lost 'in calculation'. Does this mean there is an error in the ECU, a faulty or shifted detector somewhere in the tank? I'm about 100kg so the mpg is not my concern, the weird ass early indication of empty tank is... weird, no? If my calculations are correct, with my weight and naturally born heavy wrists...
...I should be able to do 13.7kml/32mpg, which at the max should total up to about 240km/150 miles.
Can anyone shed some light on this?
