I tested my 2018 Speedmasters fuel light
I rode 11 miles with the gauge reading empty (then I Lost my nerve & refilled up)
Bit irresponsible I know but I wanted to know how far I could do in an emergency

Do you remember how much fuel it took to refill?

OK, so now the light came on after only 105 easy miles. It goes on and then off and then on again, regardless of whether the ride is level or up and downhill. I think this will just be an on-going "eccentricity" of my bike, so I am going to reset the trip meter after each fill-up, ignore the light, and fill-up between 150-175 miles. I don't think I will ride 200 km, as I don't want to ride on the wrong side of the road:cool:
