first off, the mileage you will be seeing is going to be affected by factors like full exhaust w/PCIII, sprocket changes, and of course how much throttle input. with that said i would say 30 to 40 mpg. all three of the factors i mentioned affect my mileage and i'm around 33-35 mpg.

also amazing that same bike puts out more HP than most new cars.

not really when you think about it, quite a bit of Chevy's new fleet gets at least 35 mpg's, i'd think these cars are at least pushing out 130 hp or so ? Now they also aren't being revved to 11g's either,like our bikes do :eyebrows:

As I'm from Europe, all I can say is that American car engines drink WAY too much fuel and also have too much displacement for the power they seem to pump out....

once you do that power to weight equation you'll see that the bike far exceeds the car in HP

Depends how you ride, I get about 24 t0 26 mpg on my 03 954, only mod is a Jardine RT-1 slip-on. IF and that is a big IF, I can manage to convince myself to short shift and keep my RPM's below 6k I can get 35mpg from my bike.

As for my cage I get 14.3mpg consistently in my F-150.

As an american I can enjoy a nice big gas guzzling full size pickup truck:lol:

I know this is a month old thread but i was looking at mpg changes with a PCIII and saw this. I have a devil pipe slip on and get consistant 40 - 44mpg. Only time i saw 38 was during the winter time with long warm ups every day back and forth to work for 7 miles. This is true for 8k miles ive put on it. This is both on it and easy on it (below 6k) riding.

I also have a gas guzzling 69 Olds that gets 8mpg

i havent really mesured my mpg i just know that my low fuel light comes on between 114 and 130 miles depending on how hard i get into it. i think i did see a 145 ones but that was when i first got the bike and was getting use to it but that was probly 11,000 miles ago and a whole riding season ago also.
