Re: Topping Up Gas
Same here, I stop the engine with the key because the kill switch feels as though repeated use will shorten its life. On the filling issue, no cannisters on the Australian spec models, not on my '05 anyway, so I gently rock the bike to the extreme left whilst on the sidestand and I can usually get to within 1 or 2 bars of the top of the gauge. That normally reads out at 490 +/- Km's till empty initially. 98 RON wherever possible, 95 if not.
