I don't often push my luck that far, though I do the Round Britain Rally and you can end up miles from
fuel so it's good to know how far you can go. doesn't seem to make a lot of difference how fast you go
and it uses more fuel at slower speeds sometimes. don't think I have had anything that does better.

Well it made it just was cutting out on acceleration as we got to the fuel station, took 13.91 ltrs to fill,
62 miles on F trip, 339 miles on the tank, 106.9 UK MPG, mpg trip says 114.9 mpg but it rely did 106.9.
Xmax 300 has a 13L tank, so I would be very suspicious of that fuel station reading stating more than you actually paid for.

Well I’ve bit the bullet and ordered a new screen for the Xmax 300
It is a Kappa but it is just a rebadged Givi Screen (I believe.....)
It’s 205mm taller than the standard screen and I think it will be just right for me.
Worse case it it’s too tall I will cut it down and fit a Givi Airflow adjustable screen to it.
I have done this mod on a few bikes and it works really well :D

9 tenths of a ltr is not a lot I have had vehicles that you could not get the stated amount in and others that you could get more in, and I have got more than 13 litres in at another station so not to concerned.

I was wandering if anybody has fitted their own genuine Yamaha heated grips and if so was it difficult?

Not me I'm afraid, I just use handlebar mitts. They suit me well enough. :)

Not fitted them personally, but wouldn't think they would be a problem to fit though.. I did opt for them upon purchasing my Xmax, they look good, easy to use and can tell you they do a good job of keeping my fingers nice and warm :)
