With a stock bike, I get 42 MPG.

That's 200 miles per tank (at 4k to 5k rpm) before I'm pushing.

120-125 riding the way I like to.

Maybe because you don't have all the mods your supposed to have and are running Ivans map. I'm sure it is running rich as hell.

my guess is that you're not filling the tank when you refill.
let me guess; you put the nozzle in & when it clicks off it's full?

Mine was consistent at 120 miles to fuel light pre Ivan's delivery of goodies. Now is consistent at 135 Miles to fuel light. I have gone 180 miles but was puckering at arrival of fuel stop. I have over 6K on the odo for these estimates.

Stock gearing so say numbers above are 4% optimistic. I ride as hard as I wish and much prefer cornering and on throttle to straights and cruising. It's not as thrifty as the gen 1 or other 5 valve Yam's I've owned. Or a 4 valve 1000 cc zuk I own for that matter...

I'm ready to part with the seat prior to 150 miles however; so fuel mileage is generally not a problem.

You must be smelling fuel when you are done riding with that map, and a stock exhaust. You can't go wrong with Ivan's maps; when the bike can exhale I bet things will be sorted out.

I am sure it has been touched on before but I am amazed at how much better fuel mileage my 06 R1 got compared to my 07 FZ1. Now that the FZ has gotten some miles on her (the motor was very tight when new) the difference isnt as great but considering the higher hp of the R1 I'm still a bit suprised.

I fill up with just over 3 gallons each time...3.2-3.6 gal. If you're doing the same then 80 miles gets you about 23-24mpg.


same here and thats when the light blinks

There is no reason why a modified Gen 2 should get less than 100 miles per tank under the most severe conditions. If it does it's running WAY to rich or you're not calculating your mileage correctly.

haven't really done the right math,, just going by the trip meter, when the light blinks i fill up (usually 3.5 gallons) and for the last 5 it's been 83-85 miles
"per fill" before the pc3 and cat removal i was averaging 120-125 on the same fill up routine (3.5 gallons)

Absolutely agree with you. There is no other way to describe ur mileage properly.

Hmm, I get 16-17 km/litre on my bike (4 months, 10,500 kms, completly stock) Max I ever got was about 19-20 km/litre

& I was thinking my bike is giving poor performance

Brother, fill you tank completly, set trip meter A or B to zero & then start driving. After that fill your tank whenver you want, preferably when it is getting close to reserve. Fill the tank to full again, check how many litres you had to fill in to get it to the top, check the mileage & divide the kms by litres.
You will get the correct figure :-)

Hey guys....Shift out of 1st gear!
I know this is a gen2 subject and range is affected by fuel capacity, but MPG's cross over and 24 mpg is not too good. Even with agressive riding (triple digit speed and 6th gear rev limiter on EVERY ride?) damn... I get a pretty consistant 45 mpg commuting and as good as 50 mpg slabbing. I do drop into the 41-42 mpg range when playing the mountains with Stevo, Paulbiz and Ray. I can't imagine a map being so lean as to cut mpg in half and still perform well. My old race bike got 20 mpg and it was a 2 stroke.

250km / 156ml per tank here. Then I go the gas station. No matter how fast you ride.

42 mpg here, with the occasional hard run through the gears and some high speeds in the right time and place. Running the mods listed in my signature.

Actually, I can't recall a ride on this bike that did not include an over 100 mph burst for at least a short time. Such a bad influence. Fortunately remote open roads are nearby

Well it depends what fast means. In my case fast on curvy roads; high cornering speeds and hard accelerating out of the curves. Not riding top speed on highways. Then the mileage would be totally different.

RICKFZ1GSXR...If you are constantly changing gears at 8-10k, you must almost never get out of 2nd gear!?!? Try using all the gears, cause in 6th at 8-10k, I shudder to think what speeds you are achieving on public roads (unless of course all your riding is on the track????).

uno mas,

are you filling it to the filler neck plate?

cause if you're only getting 3.5 gallons in with each fill that's leaving a lot of gas still in the tank or it's not being filled.

Not true. When my bars go to none showing and i fill up it never holds more than 3.7 gal. Remember our tank is only 4.7 total on Gen 2's so that is 1.0 for the reserve which is about average...
