My 650R is getting 50 mpg city, just gear it up, mines 15/45 gearing it's just off idle at 50 mph in 5th. Uncorked, full exhaust, airbox mod, jetted. Cruise is 1/3 throttle 80mph. It's only down a few mpg from my 650l fuel mileage. The (L) CV Carb should help but will reduce throttle response and maybe some hp.
