Just curious what people are getting out of a tank of gas. Still only have 100 miles on mine and not sure how far I can go before I have to fill up. Thanks

I road a day of single track and with the "map 9" installed I got about 36 miles to low fuel light. After checking the plug w about 5 hourson the bike, I can see it was a bit rich. The plug was a bit darker then it should be.

55 miles to a tank, less if I'm riding a lot of sand. I've always had desert tanks, but I cant see adding anymore wieght to this bike. So I carry a stainless bottle that gives me an extra ten.

This is about what I'm getting too. I'm also running 'map 9' or pretty close to it, I've backed off on the fuel a tad. Just installed and IMS 3 gallon tank, but have yet to ride with it.

I backed off the fuel as well and road basically the same stuff as last time. I went 26 miles on 0.9 gals this time. The fuel settings are all +1's and 2's now. I suspect I could go even leaner now. I had no decel back fires nor that supper snappy feel.
