No, something is really wrong if it's really drinking that much fuel. Does it run like crap? Running that rich it should be obvious it's not running right.Hi Duckman,
I refilled the tank yesterday with a little bit less than 14l, which I suspect is what was left and why the engine still was able to start for a short time.
I guess this means that the bike is really doing 20mpgs.. which is nonsense compared to the mpgs others have been reporting (+-40mpg). I am not riding hard, only push the throttle whenever I have a long straight without traffic, which is about 2% of my commute..
The service included an air filter check so I dont think that this to be the problem. Im out of ideas, Is it a matter of messing with the ECU only? is there anything else that can influence the fuel consumption?
Cheers for your help,
If the specs I looked at are correct, the stock S2R should have about 15 more hp and about 20 more ft/lb of torque. The power difference should be a little greater still if you have a full exhaust with tune. Have you checked the air filter to make sure it isn't excessively dirty?I had a 696 before and I was expecting this one to be a beast compared to it but its not that much more powerful I have to say
You might be right. I guess it all depends on how much of that last half gallon the pump can pick up. I know I can get well over 30 miles out of my ST after the light comes on (I do it on a regular basis), but the Monster is a whole different animal.Haha. I thought the reserve lasted 30 miles too until I ran out twice after about 10 miles.
