    This bike is odd. Last few tanks full, I've only averaged 36+ to 38+ mpg. @ an average of 4200 to 4500 (never experienced that low, but the O2 sensor bypass is recent). This past 100 mile ride, averaged 4500 to 4800 with the occasional sprint to 110 mph....42.65 mpg. Moral of story, beat on it.

    Tony,

    Did either Ricard or Dave Coote ever notice flat spots on their clutch hub shock springs?
    They have had their motors apart probably more than any other owners.

    We never discussed it. If you like I can ask when I go there later this summer . Or maybe Richard will see this and answer .
