According to my manual 6.8 liters. I took my super for a rip today. Only did about 50 km but the gas guage never moved. I was able to put the speedo past 80 kph on an easy down hill. I have to ring its neck to launch fast. It rips to 50 kph then struggles to 65 kph. Once past 65 it gets peppy again. It is abit switchy at 80 kph and above. Also very noisy compared top the Ruckus. If I launch it at less than full throttle is is slow to reach 50 kph. I'm not sure if the last owner jetted the carb after installing the unifilter setup and pipe.

Nice find with the service manual. Once I get home from the arctic and have a real internet connection I will download that and ad it to the new Kymco section on the main website.

FWIW, I've added new pages on almost all of the Kymco scooters. Most of the pages just went live yesterday. The last couple pages will go live in the new few days.

well i was telling gvh i changed the plug and did air filter and topped up rad, it was first time i took the bike apart 2 service, the engine is so small :lol: so tiny is the cylinder it's cute, but it all looks tight no leaks :) still had a hard time judging the fluid level in rad(hard 2 see) and u only have 2 take off top 2 screws 4 rad panel 2 open, save u that waste of time.
my air filter was 1/4 wet with blow by oil, maybe that had an effect on mileage? got fresh plug just need weather 2 get better and see how it runs now on long haul f 100 km or so :|

OK did 90 k from a fill up. Scooter was just into the red. It only took 3.35 L to fill it right up. So if the tank is 7 L I should have another 40-60 k till totally empty. I bought a 1.25 gallon jerry can that fits under the seat. I will drive the super to dry and see how far it goes.

Need to fix the flat spot but enjoying the speed.

Ok scooted to Studio Cycle today. Did a 100 k today. Still in the on the blue just out of the red. Spoke with the head guy that shows at the ralleys. He gets 300 k on his stock Super 9 Lc. 220 ish if he does full throttle all around town. He and the mechanic said 100-120 for a modded scooter used hard. Also my flat spot is normal for a pipe and intake mod. no solving it just moving it around.

all and all a fun day.
