The search feature is your friend.
You can expect 45-75 miles on a tank till reserve. Depends on jetting, riding style, pipe, etc.
I get about 50 riding hard on the street with an un-corked and re-jetted '03.
If mileage is that important, stick with the smaller motors.

24 hours and no responce........ anybody out there?
What are you expecting to hear? You already read that its about 60 miles on the stock tank. You don't want to get a bigger tank, but the 60 miles is unacceptable to you.
You already know what the right thing to do is... but you don't want to do it.
If you think its a lot to handle a bike with an extra gallon of gas, just wait until you are pushing it.

Check this thread out for tanks:
I have put about 200 miles on my 2003 and have the free mods done and a JD jet kit. So far with somewhat aggressive riding I am finding about 32mpg. I have yet to really rip on it but fuel mileage sounds pretty light. Time for a bigger tank...
