  2. Probably a very silly question - XL700 reserve tank/switch - fuel questions

    Sorry I have googled but no firm conclusion. XL700 2009 - is there a 'reserve' tank? If yes, where is the switch to chose it? Also do you have to fill it separately or just in the normal hole? Yes...this is my first proper bike :occasion8: p.s roughly how many miles should I get from a full tank?
  3. Transalp 600 smaller fuel tank?

When I stopped, I switched back on to the main fuel tank, and started refueling. I was surprised...
  4. X700 Coolant Level

    How on earth are you meant to check the coolant level in the reserve tank? I can see the upper and lower level marks on the outside but even with shining a strong torch through the tank from behind then I still can't see the level of the coolant inside. You can't even look down through the...

  17. Fuel range on reserve.

    Africa Twin
    Once the bike has gone onto reserve approximately what range is there available. I am guessing about 50 miles, same as on my Pan European. This is the kind of figure it is nice to have an idea of without finding out in real life.
