So 150 km feels like a safe margin, on road. Cheers. :-)

Question - with a full tank, what range do you have before fitting reserve (in KM). I'm Topping up at 100km just to be safe at the moment whilst I'm learning...
That depends to a great extent on how worn your engine, your style of riding Use your 100km for now and see how much fuel you need From memory a standard tank takes 13.4 litres BUT not all is usable . I bought an MT one time and stopped at the first garage I found, It took 13.1 litres
Running close on fuel just isn't worth the worry and dragging muck into the carb a nightmare

Actually, that's a good call. Will report back on subsequent top ups! Thanks. And sorry for the thread hijack ;-)
