ST3 Q&A owners?

Still looking at the ST3. Maybe you owners could answer some questions.

1. Is that tank steel - will it hold a magnetic bag?

2. What mileage do you get when touring, not thrashing?

3. What is the real fuel tank capacity - full to fumes?

4. What are the recommended service intervals?

5. How expensive has dealer service actually been?

Thanks for your anticipated replies.

Full to fumes is close to 5.5 US gal. If you look before you put in 5 gallons, it looks very dry in there. The rear area of the sump is where the last 1/2 gallon collect (logically).

I get the best mileage on the open roads, in warmer weather. I've gotten close to 55mpg when using 5th + 6th gears, and cruising at over 70mph. Stock ST2 gearing (15/42), opened airbox lid, and DUC perf. chip + DUC perf. exhaust.
