just use your trip meter as your gas gauge,
on my bike, i can go about 180 miles tops, before hitting reserve, so around 150 to 160 miles, i start looking for a gas station.

It's not likely to be accurate on a sportsbike because of the nature of these bikes and how they are ridden - generally leant over. That's why they don't bother fitting one in the first place.

I tend to just see how far I've gone using the trip meter, I can gauge pretty accurately when I'm about to hit reserve.

It's not the speed that kills, it's the sudden stop...

I've gone 180 and 185 miles on two different tanks of gas without hitting reserve. So usually I fill up around 150 as well. I guess it's all in how much throttle you use (not much here).

Yep I get right on 180 miles (290km) before switching to reserve on the J1 as well. I do about half town and half freeway riding. I find I get an extra 10 - 15 km from using a higher octane fuel.
