I just picked up my zx12 about two weeks ago.

So far, I love it except my wrist gets a bit sore. But nothing too serious.

What range are people getting from a tank of gas?
I'm getting about 150kms before the last LED bar on my fuel gage starts to flash.

Yep, they don't go far...and I just discovered tonight
that when you only have one bar, and take off fast,
the bike loses fuel and falls on its face...

My mileage is as follows: Town Riding = 26 mpg: HiWay Riding =31 mpg: A little bit of both with approx 10 passes at the strip: = 28 mpg. The bike kinda rewards me for drag racing instead of cruising.

with mileage but those triple digets will use big time gas! I'd also use a good synthetic oil & run higher tire pressure if I wanted better mileage> 41 front & 41 rear.

I am getting around 34 mpg in town riding with 17/46 gearing. I am running Dave in Daytona's map, seems to be pretty lean hence the good (or at least better than I was getting) mileage..

When my bike was stock, I was getting about 145 miles before the flashing bar. After I tuned it (Hindle, PC111R and BMC race air filters) I get to 130 miles before the flashing bar. I did a track day yesterday and got 65 miles per TANKFULL!! Worth every cent! More about that in my other post.

low 30's comuting

high 20's on the weekends

low 50's when i was in colorado<img src=http://www.ezboard.com/intl/aenglish/images/emoticons/eek.gif ALT=":eek"> .... It blew my mind to put 105 miles on and only put 1.97 gallons in. I was like WTF??? It was sweet being able to go 150 miles before having to look for a gas station.

The only complaint about the 12 is the bad vibration. My hands and feet need to be stretched and taken off the grips and pegs every 25 min.
