I second that motion ... 23L, 22L ... what would it be?
Just a thought, it seems the fuel mapping on the LC8s is quite poor. It seems like, perhaps, a really well crafted fuel map could do as much or more for range as a larger tank. I know my TLS which was similarly poorly mapped from the factory went ~108 miles before the light went flashy (saying I'd better find a station right away) to 140+ miles before flashy after really careful remap. Gained power and responsiveness too. Anyone doing careful maps for these bikes yet?
