    Default GPZ1987 600r FUEL CONSUMPTION. & Brakes

    i have a gpz600r and have noticed that it is useing fuel like that!! well i do around 200+ kms on the tacko and theres a full tank almost gone. as im new to road bike and as this is and older bike then many of other use im jast asking wheather this is the normal consuption of fuel or does it need sometink looked at.... help would be great

    the bike is goin to the shop tuesday for a service and new tread on rear. if i know what to ask them to check will be great or even beta give me sometink to cheak but im not that good on the tools

    im sure the service includes the valve clearences checked. im a new rider(roadbikes) i dnt red line it hardly ever rev it to 5grand as it redlines at 11 that said i may give it a few squirts in a ride(after corners). the bike it stock as a roak as far as i know ie the carbs, pipes, air filter and sparkplugs are orignial. sorry but i dnt kow any history hench thats why its goin 4 a service.
    on first start up it does run rough and little rattley but all that goes away when warm doesnt blow smoke of any kind.
    i will go steady on the new rubber till it wears a little for sure

    i have been quoted for the service close to $500 for the service plus the tyre. that sound fair

    also the rear brake work as they should after we fitted new pads but every now and they the brakes come on untill i give the pedel a pump and they are good till the next ime down the track. anything you think off yell out

    everything should be covered under the service they're about to do, let us know if anything persists and we'll see what we can do to help you out.

    With the rear brake, is it a drum brake or a disc brake?

    Also, welcome to the forum! Make sure to make a thread introducing yourself with some photos of you and the bike so we can see who we're talking to
    Remember, any servicing you do to the bike that doesn't fix the problem is still servicing

    Welcome, I am not familiar with your bike model so 200km means nothing.

    In commuting my 500 does about 5 liters per hundred kilometers in normal use. If I flog it a bit it goes to 7 liters per hundred.

    Highway cruising should be somewhere between those figures.

    Pushing hard on open roads could get me to 10 liters per 100 kilometers.

    Those numbers should be more like 19-23 kms per litre. At 20 kms/ltr you tank will get you over 350 kms.
