I just switched from a Harley to an 2007 R1200RT, good decision. I received a small owners manual but it has confused me. Page 28 of the manual refers to and shows a picture of a sight glass to check the oil in, page 106, not on my bike or am I missing something.
Page 28 talks about "FUEL DOWN TO RESERVE"
"A fuel shortage can lead to misfiring an to the engine dying unexpectedly. Misfiring can damage the catalytic converter, and the engind dying unexpected can lead to accidents." (Here is the kicker for me. Next sentence) " Do not drive until the fuel tank is completely empty." How can I drive with an empty fuel tank, was something lost in translation. I took it to the local parts manager and he said the manual may have been recalled but could find nothing. The mechanic said the statement made perfect sense. I'm not sure I want to use their service after that statement. Does anyone out there have the same manual and does it have the same statements???
How can I get a manual that gives me a better review of the bike its features and how they work??? Thanks Ron
