Interested to hear from those of you with 07 700 SE's as to when the fuel warning light comes on. Mine shows it's face with what seems to be over 1/2 a tank of fuel so I take it it's f%*ed

Havent had mine come one yet. I imagine it would take around 5 hours of continous riding to get it that low.

Mine comes on pretty low in the tank, the sensor must be at the back of the tank because it comes on with steep downhills anything below half a tank.

I don't have enough saddle time on my Rap yet, but I did notice it seemed to come on early. This was during some hills as well. Once on open prairie, the light went out again, but I just meandered back to the truck for more gas, just in case. She did seem kinda thisty at that point.

I rode my 07 for the second time yesterday. Fuel light came on a little above half a tank. I shut the quad off and turn it back and it goes away. However when doing any kind of jumps or steep trails it comes back on. Kind of annoying when I know I still have about 2 hours of riding time left :3question:

I usually get about 6 hours in before the light stays on.

I had a GPS on the bike when my fuel light came on with 60 miles, I went another 15 miles back to camp. This was all mountain trail riding. Don't recall how many hours.

so do you think our raptors get better gas mileage than the little mini bike in dumb&dumber :lol:

same with the engine light that comes on when u start it whys that
Even a car does that, all the gauges turn on when you first turn the bike on so you can see and make sure they are all working and one isnt burnt out.

I have 2 700R's and the first light came on after about 5-6 hours and I put 2 gallons of fuel in. I'd easily say there was another 2 hours.

This seems to be exactly what mine's doing. Shit, can't believe that this is so common. What a pain in the arse. I'm almost rather have the old snowmobile style level indicator that was on the gas cap...the one that had the needle that spun around like a top lol. Guess this is just how this unit works, er, doesn't work.

Mine will flash on for 20 sec. or so occasionally, seems to be fuel level about where you would switch to res. on other quads before it stays on though. It has never stayed on steady unless it reaches that "reserve" level. Are you riding down hill when it comes on? I'm thinking it must be a timed light so it doesn't come on every time the fuel sloshes forward, how much time though...? :unsure:

Yesterday I was riding alot of up and down type trails, first time on the quad. This is also the first time the light has come on, even though tank was full. All other times I've been riding have been on flat surfaces. Light never came on then.
