    It all depends how that is calibrated. Mags' 09 GS would still have 1.5 liters if fuel in the tans once it indicates 0km. If mine indicated 0km, you had better be standing next to a petrol pump.

    Its all relative.

    With my NC, my best was 497km and it took 13.86l to fill up.
    With my GSA, i normally fill with other bikes, so that best is 480km, 26.22l to fill, but I'm sure I will be able to go past 500km reach.

    16L tank, 320 clicks (then I switched to reserve) - 1200 ToadWart - but only in winter. In summer it drops down to about 280 or so ...
    Also depends on the type of riding - commute / town
