Gas milage

Hello. Im new to this site. Been reading alot of the posts and i'm loving all the info i'm seeing.

I had a question about what kind of gas milage you guys are getting per tank. I'm supposed to be picking up my new 06 RR on the 28th of this month.

Congrats on your soon to be bike.

I average 40-45 mpg on my tank, a lot of highway driving to and from work, but I don't get on it much.

You can check other people's mileage in a couple of these threads:

If you don't want to wait for people to post up, you can always do a quick search, if you hadn't already, and see if there are any similar threads.

Enjoy and welcome to the site.

Average about 30 or so myself. 15/45 gears sucks it up. I have got to find a deal on another 43.

Well, I started with a full tank the other day - rode for 135 miles - the gauge said I had 1/3 of a tank left when I pulled in to fill up again, but I could only fit 2.2 gallons in the tank - which would tell me it was a little more than half full when I pulled in to fill up. I wasn't really getting on it, just going with traffic with the occasional quick accel.

I'm sure this is well above average, but with gas prices skyrocketing, I hope it keeps up.

I just starting commuting on my bike - 130 miles a day! So far I'm getting between 35-40mpg - with a mix of freeway and city riding. And this is with 15/48 (-1/+5) gears on my 05.

15/48...holy crap, what do you do, only ride on the back tire?

No, though there is more of that than there used to be. It does have great acceleration now. I know I've lost a bit of top end... my max speed is probably about 130-140 now. Not really a problem though.

What kind of revs are you turning at say 70mph now though....must be 8K or above.

at 70, in 6th gear, I'm probably about 7.5-8K. At 80 I'm cruising at nearly 9K (in 6th gear). With the stock gearing, 6th gear was nearly useless. Now I use every gear. The -1/+5 gearing is actually what peter verdone recommended so I thought I'd try it out. Seems to work fine for me. My complaint about the gearing before was that, in the twisties, I'd be either too high or too low in the rpms for the speed I was trying to maintain in the turns. I haven't really had a chance to thoroughly test it yet, but from the small sampling I've done of some back roads, this is a much better setup.

I get about 40, although when I ride it nicely, I'll get about 43-45. A couple of jaunts up into triple digits. You'd be amazed at how much gas you can save if you tuck. Just think if you had a small parachute on your car, how much your gas mileage would be affected. Same principle.

Those are some impressive numbers. One of my reasons for getting abike is so I dont have to spend 40$ every few days to fill up my car. filling up 3 gallons or so every 150 miles is Rad as hell. I can't wait

Jeez guys
You all are living large.
I get around 25-30 mpg max. I just bought a used
05 with akrapovic slip on and PC 3. Must be the map.
Its a downloadable map from Power Commander web site.
My fuel guage blinks at around 120-125 miles.

I get around 30-35 usually but can get around 40+ if I take it easy and ride "slow" . I lost about 7 or 8 mpg after my 15-45 sprockets!

After reading this thread I think I'll be ridin just about everywhere. Yesterday I took my bike to school...which is about 45 minutes from my house. I parked the car and took the bike out instead..to save a few $$$ in gas. But after reading this..driving will be cutt back alot.
Funny thing folks were in their cars sitting in traffic and I just cruised the shoulder. Yeah the gas prices are outrageous everywhere.

I got 40 the other day on my 06 w/ Yoshi slip on, and that was about 20 miles of rapeing it, 40 miles in town and 40 on the hwy. I ride tucked resting on the tank on the hwy though.
