at cruising speed it burns 25% more fuel around 97 miles on a tank compared to 130 miles with HO, WOT bursts she drinks a lot more!

My mate & i went out on Saturday him on his FXHO me on my SHO, we both travelled the same distance & both started with full tanks in 2.3 hours mine was reading a quarter of a tank, his three quarters. GULP even at nearly $4.00 a gallon it really sucks!

SHO manual says fuel level warning at 18L or 4.8 US gal on the lowest 2 segments of the fuel guage.

I had the opportunity to find out about the buzzer!
I was at Lake Powell and I missed the turn off to go into the Angler Cove Marina and over shot by about 6 miles..when we realized what we had done, the buzzer went off right when we started heading back with a mother, small child and myself from our party riding on my ski. All I can tell you is that it was approx. 370lbs of weight and I was able to make it back about 6-7 miles going approx. 35-40mph...if it was just myself @ 163lbs. I probably could have gone another 3-5 miles.

Jeez FLASH I just researched your Lake Powell. What an awesome place to ski. The lake I use here is 5 miles long lol When I saw you missed a turn by 6 miles I was curious. Turns out your "lake" is almost 190 miles long lol. It looks more like a river then a lake. Looks smooth too. Man I am so jealous. I get the ocean and waves but that lake looks bad ass to ski.
