I think unless you`ve got all day its almost impossible to fill it up anyway,
the last bit of the tank needs time and determination to fill.
Anyone else have this problem?

Yes  :0461: the last bit you fill a bit, wait for it to replace the air, fill a bit more etc I guess you can add like 1.5 to 2 liters like that

I have managed to do more than 300kms with a full tank 2 or 3 times. But it's a stressful experience as the gauge is well UNDER the red zone area. One of these times I even run out of fuel. It was the first kms with the bike and as my previous TDM could easily do 340-360kms with a 20 lt tank I thought that the 19 lt of the CBF could safely do more than 300kms but I was wrong.

Nowadays I fill up every 200-230 kms.

just started gettin over 10 miles per litre, bikes now got 2700 miles, did 165 miles but didnt push it too much but never managed to get 17 litres in it yet............... the 600 does have a low fuel light but it didnt have a test to let u know the bulb (lcd) was workin rather like the temp light on the 1000, a melted engine to find out the bulbs gone.......

still running mine in wish it had a proper reserve tap or indication but got 190 miles out of a full tank today when i filled up 16.4 lts to fill tank back up and the gauge was reading very low but did it deliberately to see what i'd get but i was halve expecting the bike to cut out. :mfrlol:

see what i get next time always better to now exactly what the bike will cover just in case but will normally fill up as it hits quarter tank.

What a waste of time. Sits near full, making everything looking good, then sinks like a stone. Given the accuracy of others and that of my previous TDM why do we have to tolerate this cheap piece of C***P. :232:

an accurate gauge is what you are suggesting  :mfrlol:

but remember, if the tank holds 19 litres and the red zone has 4.5 litres, the first half from full downwards is 9.5 litres, but the second half is half or that as there is only 4.5 litres between halfway and the start of the red zone.

So the needle seems to speed up.  Stupid i agree

If there's a low fuel light on the 600, is there scope to fit a 600 low fuel warning light on 1000?

Yes Honda have pinched a few pennies building the CBF and the fuel gauge is just one of them. When you have an engine management system, an electronic odometer and speedo the leap to a low fuel warning lamp is just software and a lamp - pennies.
