    I'm heading off on a trip tomorrow on my 990. The longest distance between fuel is 810km (~500mi) of dirt.

    I have no idea how much fuel my 990 uses (haven't had it that long), I have a full tank + 65 litres. Will I make it?

    Mine voids the tank to Reserve (ca. 4.3 gal) in 240 km. I´d tell that those 65 L will be enough for your ride

    depends how you ride, my fuel consumption can be anything from 8.00 ltr/100 down to 6.44 ltr/100 all depends on how much fun I'm having :D


    but having said that on my worst figures you should still just make it
