My fuel indicator started flashing and the F-trip indicator came on, how far have you guys rode this out on your bikes?

I've never tested it myself, but I seem to recall reading in another thread somewhere that about 22-25 miles were to be had after the f-trip meter comes on.

My advice? DON'T try to test the limits. I've gone 28 miles before a fill up. I've also had it run out at 21. The temps were in the 30s. That wasn't fun!

Is F-trip the indication that you need to get your ass to a gas station?

I was wondering if the bars would flash or if it would just drop from 1 bar to none when I ran out.

It will start to blink and will indicate how many miles you've gone since it started blinking.

+1, pretty much the replacement for old manual reserve petcocks - when it comes on you are using the last bit of gas before walking. Throttle input, temp, exhaust, FI controller, etc will all play into how much actual mileage you will get after it comes on, I would think 20 is a safe number if you are easy on the gas.

I'd worry about running out of gas so I'd probably WOT until I find a station!

I rode about 10 miles on the low fuel and filled up with 2.9 gallons. It has been cold out so my mileage wasn't great, but it sure beats my car :p

My first day riding I tested the ftrip out. I carried some extra gas and rod til the engine died. I had about 26 miles on the f trip. added the 20 oz of fuel and rode a few blocks and filled it to 1/4 ABOVE the bottom of the filler neck and put in 3.9 gal total.

End up doing your little mod. Rag, punch and hammer did the job. I'll find out in the next few hours how much range I get. Riding to Daytona this am... 200 miles.

3/4 of a gallon left when that light comes on. 20-30 miles max depending on fuel economy. It's nice that you get a mileage counter as soon as you hit the reserve.

Who does this? On the first day out?
Ha! You are one serious mileage man.
I wonder if you poke along at say 30 in sixth if you could do fifty miles on reserve?
Just kidding, don't do it.

I might have forgotten to fuel up last night cuz I was enjoying the empty road heading along Lake Mead and I wasn't ready to turn around. On the way back Ftrip came on and there was not one station to be had in the national rec area. Made it to the first station I came across and F trip reported 32 miles. Not one sputter or hiccup. Man was I a wreck. I never thought I was gonna make it. Thought for sure I'd be pushing her.

My Fz09 is one of the first sold and there were lots of unknowns and suppositions back in late 2014
