gas mileage

hey guys, i got a question about my gas mileage. With my full tank that i fill up about 3 gallons i only get 80 miles on the whole tank anyone can tell me why i havent done oil change maybe for 2000 miles max. i have an 05 600rr with just over 10k miles. i have a aftermarket slip on exhaust i believe its a jardine.

??? anyone can tell me why id have such shitty mileage?

I get barely 150 miles on a tank and the light is flashing the last 25 or so miles. ( exactly 3 times to and from work) I just ride it to work. I average 85 MPH which is almost 7500 RPM all the way.

My '03 600RR gets about 40mpg max. Thats cruising to work which is 60mph straight and flat. Totally sucks but gets me 120-150 miles per tank which is about 3.5 gallons. Spirited riding I get 25-30 which is close to your MPG. At the track I get like 15 mpg or less, I dont really know how much for sure at the track but I know I burn through a tank in a hurry.

Ride it like your sponsored.
