I can go 75-80 miles before I hit reserve on my XR600R on the street, back and forth to work. So I guess I'm getting around 35-40 depending on how hard I thrash it .

Removing smog stuff doesn't help or hurt. I got 38 mpg on the street, and I'm not sure in the dirt. When you think about it, that is horrible gas milage for such a small displacement engine. I had a honda civic that displaced over 2 times the 650 cc's in my old XRL, and it got 33 mpg on the highway. But it wasn't air cooled and carbuerated.

I get 45 to 52 mpg no matter how hard I beat on it. Mine has a UNI filter and 14/48 gearing.

I usually see about 42-45 MPG, but managed 54 over two tanks last weekend on a long road trip. My XRL is still choked up with smog.

Stock I got around 50mpg on road and about 30 off road. With a 14 tooth front sprocket, 140/90 MT-21 on the back, smog stuff removed, snorkel mod, Dave and Brian's carb mods, now getting about 45/25mpg.
