after a 600mile trip this weekend and running -1/+2 sprockets i'm getting 38 mpg whats wrong here?

04 600rr, kinda sucks while everyone else is getting about 50 mpg on similar bikes, i was getting around 40 before i put on the lower gearing.

I know w/o a speedohealer my ODO and mph is off so i checke dthis with my friends trip, and fuel use of my bike tank to tank. What can i do to imrpove my economy, im not much of a mechanic so i dunno where to start could the plugs be fouled up a bit?

I was getting 45 mpg before the sproket swap it is just-1+1 so I dont know how much it will affect the mpg

I have been getting 46-50 but ride very conservative because it is currently my daily driver. But I have had days where I ride 180 miles to my buddy's shop in Sarasota and have had to stop for gas twice each way. So good and bad depending on the ride.

seems to me the cbr is the gas hog of sportbikes maybe unless its a 110 octane racebike.

another guy on an 07 cbr was getting better mileage than me too, we always filled up at the same time and i'd always be down to a quarter tank and theyd be abov half, thats with fuel guages on both cbr's, cours ehis was a stock sprocket 07.

still dont think its that big a diff i think im runing 500rpm higher to get similar speeds.
