Default Couple of questions. Trade in and weird gas mileage?

Hello all! I just wanted to share today's experience! for the first time I took out my F4I in traffic and actually survived! lol I have to admit it was fun as hell! It was cut short though due to cold weather! anyway I put about 3 gallons of gas or more about a month ago? when the seller delivered by bike the reserve signal came on. Anyway while riding I noticed my reserve signal came on.I looked at the odometer and it only had 35 miles or so? I thought that was weird. Anyway I put about $10 worth of gas and hopefully get good MPG. I dont rev it up high. I have no plans of going fast. Anyway here is another thing. If you have a 2002 F4I with 30k miles and a guy with a 2000 R6 with 13k miles offers to trade and give you $500 on top of that. Would you do it? Why or why not? thanks ha

I wouldn't. The 00 R6 is carburated. Your f4i is fuel injected. (not a feature I'm willing to sacrifice)

No fuel leaks? that is kind of weird

yeah the r6 isnt worth the trouble. Did the seller drive it in that time before he delivered it or did you look down into your tank when you put 10 bucks in it. Ten bucks should fill is most of the way so if you only burned a gallon(35 miles a gallon) then the tank should be overflowing by the time you fill it with aprox 3 gallons of fuel

Kk.The r6 just has a nice riding position IMO. Anyway I looked down the tank! Well today my total was $8.80. Hopefully it is good! I just put the trip to zero and gonna observe it!

I bet the guy you bought the bike from filled his gas can from the gas he thought he bought before he delivered the bike. Lol

You would be as high as a kite in order to do that trade
