The 2013 Monster can go exactly 34 miles after the fuel light goes on.

just FYI

Shoot, I only got 20 miles out of my reserve. 14/39 at the time.

Too bad it was four more miles to the gas station, being as I won't leave my bike sitting by the side of the road in Rancho Cordova I called in reinforcements and had gas delivered.

ouch. I'm on a 13 m796 with ABS. Even smaller tank than the non-abs. A bit disappointed with the capacity, but I can live with it as the bike is just ridiculously fun. My first bike SFV650 Gladius got about 55 mpg and I easily went 150 without the light coming on. I have the front sprocket change, only 800ish miles so I'm sure my MPG will change but currently getting around 45. sometimes only 43-44. My light comes on around 100-110 normally. I don't push it much more than 10-20 miles after that. I want to, but just don't want to take the same walk you did. LOL! How long until your light comes on?

I just got my carburetors rebuilt and tuned by an expert, and it made a huge difference. It's running smooth as silk, and my gas mileage went up from 42 to 44 mpg, to 55 to 58 mpg. These carbs had about 70K on them, and the emulsion tubes had gone pretty oval.

I think in the US the 796 is always ABS... 795 is non....
anyway we have the same bike...

fuel light comes on just over 100

but I just put on a 14t sprocket so im guessing sooner now

It wasn't then, but it is now. A fine example of the mutability of nature. :)
