Whats your fuel mileage?

What kinda fuel mileage are you guys getting. I have an 06 1krr. I got 250 miles on the bike now and i have gone through 2 tanks of gas.

I havent been hard on it either. Havent been above 10k rpms. Is 125 miles a tank normal?

Re: Whats your fuel mileage?

bout 105 miles to reserve as stock, a little bit more how its been set up with goodies, 115miles to reserve. Sure it would do lots more but uk roads I tend to ride are the twisties and demand lots of short bursts of accelaration/braking so I guess thats why its so much less than you guys in the USA?

Re: Whats your fuel mileage?

You will find that gas mileage will improve somewhat after the break-in period. So you're bringing your bike close to 10,000 rpm with only 250 miles on your bike? Just wondering.

Re: Whats your fuel mileage?

Not only does gas mileage improve after break in, it gets better over the life of the bike. My 600f4 used to be able to get 150 miles at most on a tank. Its over 180 miles per tank at the 62,000 mile mark.

Re: Whats your fuel mileage?

My friends 05 1000rr get 120 miles until the light comes on that's with a +5 rear sprocket.

My 01 929 gets 36 mpg with the -1, +2 combo.

Re: Whats your fuel mileage?

I get anywhere from 140 to 165 before my light comes. Of course this all depends how I am riding that day.

If I keep the bike long enough will it use no fuel at all?
