W800 cafe - underwhelming

published

A year ago I bought this bike because I'd always wanted to try a W650 or W800 and riders I spoke to seemed to like their bikes. I bought it interstate and made the mistake of not having a test ride first.
I have a Moto Guzzi 750 and an SV650 and these two bikes are more fun to ride. I've decided that I don't particularly like 360 degree twins. I did 1200kms in the first month and since then it has sat unused and up for sale.
The finish is extremely good. Nothing else I can say.

Excellent to modify

published

One of the easiest bikes to modify to improve look and handeling. Great comeback of the classic W. This bike will give anyone who enjoys a project a lot of options. Easy tune ups and installations of improved parts. I have replaced mudguards, food pegs, mirrors, speedo, handelbar, leavers... You name it. It's looking now better than one of these customs that you buy in a shop. Great project bike for someone who once to get into it... and yes it rides well too.

Simply gorgeous

published

Bought one in NZ, sept 2012. A simple bike for simpler times. Works best at a unhurried speed, with no destination in mind. Screen, panniers will spoil the look in my opinion and there are better suited bikes around. But if you just want something that makes you smile everytime you ride it and have strangers stop to compliment you on your bike, this is it. A keeper.
Useful torque means no need to constantly change gears around town.
Not built for speed or touring in comfort.

sorry but I can't help you because my W800 cafe has been parked up for a year and i didn't ever fill it.
There will be an online owners handbook for it with this info

Hi. Capacity is 14 litres. Fuel light comes on when you have around 3.1 litres remaining. That should get you at least 75kms if doing highway riding and a little less if around the city
