Sorry, I know this must get asked all the time, but I swear something's not right. I filled my '02 6R all the way up with premium last week and I got a grand total of about 110 miles before having to switch to reserve. The rear is a 44, I'm not sure if that's stock or 4+ (in which case the mileage is closer to 100)? Most of the miles were stop and go in the city, and I never really got on the gas very hard. I figured an '02 would get 35-40 mpg.

I have an 03 6R. So far the bike has 1.8k on the odo. I used to get around 33-34 mpg. Then the previous time I gassed up, it rose to 36. The last time I gassed up it was 41. My riding did not change (approx. 50/50 fwy/surface streets, mostly cruise around 5-6k, shift around 7k). [The only thing that I did that MIGHT have affected my fuel economy was possibly my two trackdays - which might have improved the engine performance or something...]
