Default Re: Gas Mileage

I get 34mpg from my 1980 GL1100 but I keep finding the cap off when I open the faux gas tank to fill up. Riding two-up over Parleys Summit a lot doesn't help much either.



I get 38mpg from the ZRX1100 but there's a weird problem with the throttle opening wide a lot that I can't seem to solve.



The Magna's performance is measured in parts replaced per month rather than mpg. You could say it gets infinite mileage since I haven't burned any gas since last September and the timing chains are hanging out of the engine block.

I work from home now, have no reason to go anywhere since my wife doesn't work so she does all the errands, and rarely go on scheduled rides (a few a year).



That said, I burn about 2-3 tanks per week on my sv650s. I don't bother calculating mileage because it just reminds me of money wasted, although it's cheaper than a psychiatrist, unfortunately it seems to require a lawyer though.

I get about 42mpg commuting 40-50 mile round trip daily with the Concours. Today is going to be the first time I've ever put more than $20 worth of gas in a bike.

06 H-D V-Rod Nightrod .. don't know? all I do know is that every 100 miles I need to get gas! 3.5 gal tank. I beat the crap out of the bike so I'd say mid 30's

05 Duc 999 . maybe low 30's. I'm always whipping the bike around so I wouldn't know what the average mileage is.

02 H-D 883R. mid 40's Even if I TRY to go fast it won't. so this is the cruise the road bike.

Commuting mileage: 82 XJ650R - 54mpg, 93 GSX1100G – 44mpg, 04 VN750 - 56mpg. Older CB750A used to get about 40, 85 VN700 got about 50. Never kept any records on the other bikes. Commute to work is about 90 miles round trip (on lovely NJ roads, Route 9 and Route 18, lots of lights). 6 foot, 220lbs. Juvenile moments tend to lower those numbers dramatically.

Around 41 on the Bandit with a K&N stock replacement filter, and 36 or so on the jetted-pipped and airboxed T 100. Hauling my porky butt around is like riding double all the time and I don't baby either one so I suppose that's why I don't do better.



Beats the hell out of 18 in the Explorer or 12 in the Range Rover, plus the Rover likes 92 octane so it's a pretty spendy ride.
