It really depends on how you ride, but usually its around 90 miles or so before the light comes on. The 1098 has a 4.1 gallon tank of which 1 gallon is reserve. I wouldn't risk testing the theoretical limits of the reserve tank once the light is on, and I am sure many people that we have had to deliver gas to can attest to this statement. Regarding whether or not mileage improves after running it in generally you might see a slight improvement, but nothing extreme or drastic.Hi Guys,
I picked up the new 1198s a couple of days ago, everthing good apart from the usual frustrations of running in!. Am interested in hearing what mls/ks people are getting once run in? also how far you can go on reserve.
