1. Your not measuring your mpg correctly. I won't go there.
2. You are a "revver" and not a "lugger". I'm a lugger, and imagine my mpg would be much lower if I was always a gear lower and higher in the rpm's.
3. Where you are riding. You mentioned tight trails in your post above. If you are riding in 1st and 2nd gear all the time, your mpg is going to be lower.
4. Fuel leak. I've seen this quite a few times on four strokes (mostly guys that came from a two stroke, and thought all bikes were supposed to leak fuel). Make sure your drain tube from the float bowl doesn't leak when the bike is running.
I'm assuming there isn't any gas in your oil? Can't think of anything else, hope that helps.
