What type of range do you get with your K 100 bike?

NOT miles per gallon but how far can you go on a tankful.

My fuel lights are on the blink and I'm not really in the mood to push my bike.

Thanks!

I usually have to stop between 160 and 170 miles on my 91 K100LT.

Difficult to answer. Fuel mileage is directly effected by the speed you're travelling at (and the gear you're in).

Around town - I'd worry at about 140 miles.

On a trip - constant speed of 60-70MPH, you may well go 200-250 miles on a tank (best tank I ever did was 250..)

On a trip - constant speed in excess of 70MPH, your mileage will drop again, and I'd be looking to refill it at about 150-160 miles, at least until I determined what was safe for this bike at those speeds.
