  • MPG Increase

    So I pulled my Sidesucker off for powdercoatin, while off I actually cleaned the K&N filter..LOL...and re oiled it....

    I rode to San Diego & back yesterday...(200 miles)....ran from 80-85 mph most of the way.......checked my milage and was running 41 mpg....up 4 mpg from my trip to Laughlin a month ago.....didn't have a passenger plus the filter was clean....next trip I'm going to run around 65 mph and see how good I can do........betting it'll run 45+ mpg........not bad for a bagger on steroids...LOL

      Yup...I was hoping to get above 40 mpg...and it runs cool too...never broke above 215 degrees yesterday...rode in 90+ degrees while heading south in some gridlock traffic....
