Question about 2002 Honda VTR 1000 F Firestorm
I have just bought a 2002 model firestorm with the 19 ltr tank and the fuel economy is a joke!
Town riding, it managed 67 miles before the low fuel light came on and on a relatively gentle run around wales it managed 85 miles!?
surely it cant be that bad?... its only a 1 ltr engine... my crappy renault laguna is better on fuel :/
i worked out its doing around 22 mpg! this cant be right, there must be something wrong with it?
Can anyone help?
dont get me wrong as i love the bike.. its awesome, but i cant take it on a tour around spain if i need to stop for juice every hour :'(
You sound like you are UK based. Two suggestions for finding out whats wrong, 1 join the yahoo group VTR_List, wealth of user info from around the world but UK based. 2 Contact Roger Ditchfield at Revolution racing (also on the list).
Beyond that the usual things would be a), looking for a leak. b),checking stuck choke. c),plugs and filters.
You could get it Dynojetted, reports say increase response, performance and increase tank range to 125miles.
I have smaller tank model (16l in 1999) and managed to get 59 miles from the tank but only with extreme abuse of the throtle, usually get 95-100 befroe RLOD (Red Light Of Death!)
Have toured to Monaco 3 times and hope to go this year again - still only looking at 100 before starting to worry about finding a refill!
