I have posted before as I have just bought a 98 ST2 with about 19,500 on it. When I first bought it I had some odd electrical issues, which seem to have been fixed. It appears that the wires leading to the battery had gotten hot/corroded over time and the connection wasn't solid. So, I 'think' this issue is behind me. 200 miles since having it fixed and all seems well.
Now, a few questions.
1. I didn't fill my tank to the rim, but fairly full. First tank of gas I got 100 miles. Saddle bags attached but empty and I weigh 170lbs. It was a mix of highway and normal riding(I live in Tahoe so not 'city' miles). This seems EXTREMELY low to me.
2. The bike runs rough between 3,700 and 3,900 rpms. If you are riding in say 30-40mph traffic and keep the throttle steady within that range the bike almost starts to lurch. The moment you are above or under this rpm range there isn't an issue. Curios what might cause this?
Any input on my fuel consumption and rough rpm range is appreciate.
