The trick to getting more in your gas tank when you are at the pump is to pull up to the pump in the SHADE. IT'S HOT HERE IN TEXAS. Insert the pumper thingy into your tank and click the thingy that automatically shuts off when it thinks the gas tank is full. hold on ..... i'm getting there ....
Now, to be kind to your knees and hips, stand on the left side of the pumper thingy and put your left foot on the running board. With both hands dis-engage the click thingy so now you are pumping on your own VERY SLOWLY. keep going .....Our Helix is suppose to have a 3.2 tank. If you pump very slowly, on your own with both hands, and watch the gasoline flow it will seem to take FOREVER [actually just a couple of minutes}, but you will add at least another 3/4 gallon of gasoline to your gas tank.
That probably doesn't sound like much, but when the temperature is scorching, it makes more sense to me to get as much gas in the tank that takes a couple extra minutes than to constantly have to stop to add gas.
My husband rides his Ninja 500 motorcycle and me on my Helix. We have gone down to Galveston all the way from Sharpstown. I have no problem parking my Helix right next to the other bikers !!!
ENJOY YOUR NEW RIDE .
Love that Red !
