im getting around 50mpg with a leo vince exhaust, ported intake,k&n filter and a custom tune in the power commander 3 is this good or bad amounts for this big of a bike? (my old seca got 75mpg with a turbo)
Thats excellent mileage, although it is probably on the high side unless you're measuring via GPS. The stock tach is off by around 5 mph at 65. The difference changes to almost 10mph when you get over 100. I've since swapped out my tach for a Veypor which is set to my GPS. Now I get around mid 30's to 40s for fuel mileage depending on how hard I'm riding. I'm hoping to take the entire bike apart this fall/winter and do a rebuild and some motor tuning to see if I can improve things and reduce snatch. The bike is riding a lot rougher after 20,000 miles and is in need of a good cleaning.
Can't work out mpg, I'm a metric raised lad , but the best I've got is around 18km per litre, 98 octane fuel sitting on 100kph for a few hours. Managed to get 320km out of the tank and it still had a litre or two left. That damned low fuel light had been on for ages though, making me nervous worse was around 10km per litre, same fuel just having more fun ;D Average would be somewhere in between.
Only mod at the time was the TORS pipe.
Much better than the VTR 1000 I used to own, but then it only had 16 litres of fuel on board.
