i was wondering what people do untill they refill their gas tanks.
do you wait for the fuel light? or if you fill up before, and how do you know when to fill up?
another question i had if any one knows how many miles/per gallon their 636 uses up, and if it is on hard riding, or just commuting from work?

I have an 06 636 and the fuel light usually comes on after about 140-150 miles of riding. This past weekend I did a 3 hour trip with my brother going about 90 for most of it and the light came on at about 140 miles. After filling up, it took less than 3 gallons. Hope that helps!

I've always got between 105-120 miles per tank on my 05, which seemed a little low. What RPM do you guys cruise around at, I'm usually between 8500-10k when holding a steady pace.

Around town with a bunch of stopping I get abot 120-130 before the fuel light comes on. When on highway trips it is better. And when riding hard it is a little worse then that.

My fuel light comes on at ~130 miles. If i'm just cruising around town or something I might wait until the light.

Otherwise I try to plan ahead my stops on a ride so I can get fuel when needed..

i like to fill up around 120-130. in dallas you never know when you are going to get stuck in traffic for a while. so that is about 10-25 before the fuel lite comes on.
