Hey,

The reason I ask is because I've been getting relatively high mileage... not that I'm complaining, but I would like to understand why that would be so. I'm getting about 270kms before hitting reserve and my reserve tank has roughly 5 litres. My total tank size is 18L so according to my calculations, I'm get roughly 20kms/L until I hit reserve. Which would mean I can theoretically hit 370kms when I completely drain the tank including reserve. From what I was told (from a previous post I had here a while back) I should be getting between 180-220kms per tank. Why such a big difference?

The mods I have is a KerKer slip on and one less tooth on my front sprocket. I shift between 5 and 7 thousand rpm and on the occassion I take it up to 12k. I can't imagine the slip on changing mileage... but would it be the front sprocket?

I'd like to hear everyone's input on this, thanks!
