I have had very similar experience to many of you - I have the stock gearing but full mods - butterflies pcIII etc. On spirited days (jethro knows what I mean) I get around 31-34 on average. If I take it easy I can get in the 40's ..but that rarely happens (power is so damn addicting). I will try the average map soon to see how it feels...I like smooth running so hopefully this map will still do that. I wouldn't mind welcoming a few more MPG into the mix.

I ran the blinking fuel light for 26-27 miles once....praying for it not to run out of gas...topped it off with 4.2 so when you really want to stetch the fuel on this bike you can.

I use my bike primarily for commuting and seem to average about 45-47 mpg which is almost all highway riding at 70-75 mph. I have a FCE and a B&M air filter. I use 87 octane.
I was considering getting a slip on muffler, does anyone know if this will hurt or help mileage?

It will help it and the bike will be fine without a PC3 in that config.

Just back from first touring ride - 9 days leaving from 5000ft elevation down to coast via mountains. Mostly coastal riding then.

Bike has Lars airbox mod, otherwise standard performance wise. Config for the trip was raised handlebars 1 inch, homemade soft bag frame, GPS, custom fender eliminator, heated grips, tank bag, 2 up with pax backpack.

Most fill ups returned 7.0 l/100 or 32-33 MPG, this was riding at about 165/170 km/h.
Best was 6.5 l/100 or 36MPG.
Worst was 7.3 l/100 or 32 MPG.

Projected range to empty at these figures was a worst of 245km / 153 miles and best of 276km / 172 miles. I had to be careful as my fuel gauge not working.

Bike was great on the trip. My wife a great pax with just the occasional leg squeeze for the odd hooligan moment.

Before we go again I want a different screen (will try the puig touring to cut down turbulence and also maybe bar ends) and may well add some removable footpegs to from frame just to allow a leg stretch.

Based on the average of three tank fill ups I get 32 mpg (7.4 l/100 km). My bike is completely stock 2008 model. I would describe my riding as somewhere between moderate to mildly aggressive, if that description makes sense. Typically about 30 km/h above the speed limit, mainly back roads, very little highway riding, newer redline. The bike has now 2000 miles (3300 km) on it.

After seeing some of the other figures here I am now concerned about the consumption. Seems to be quite high for my riding style.

The Mileage on these is awsome for a liter bike. Riding conservativly on my 05 GSXR 600 i would only get about 32 and as low as 22. My 07 FZ1 gets 37 if I am heavy on the starts and keep it in 5th. Normal riding, 4000-6000 RPMs in 6th gear, 42 MPGs. I will take that any day for the power I get in return.

I just had a long ride this weekend (about 800 miles) and I was actually tracking mpg. Tanks ranged from 37.4 to 39.2. That was fairly agressive riding (in the 6k-8K rpm range in the tight stuff) and 400 miles of 85 mph highway drone. Some slow speed in-town traffic too. One highway tank was 41+. No real sustained high rpm top speed runs.

Running 16 tooth front, Scorpion slipon, airbox mod, FCE, BMC filter and Dek's map. Also me at 250 lbs, full gear and load saddle bags, tank bag and tail bag.

Red 06 w/Ivan's FCE and BMC filter. No other mods. Ride fairly conservative, lug a lot in 6th gear. Have seen as high as 50 and as low as 38 but consistently average 45. have gone 30 miles on "reserve" and still only put in 4.2 gallons. Yamaha, where's that other half gallon you claim? Also, mileage seems slightly better with AIS intact(not plugged)as opposed to being bypassed. Haven't had popping issues even w/the FCE(which is a definite power boost in the midrange). A slip-on w/o a PC3 will improve mileage, I guess due to a leaner mixture? Or so I read in an earlier post. I agree w/some of the others in this thread..ultimate power isn't as important as mileage if for no other reason than my riding conditions are almost always non-conducive to using the bike's potential

Well, I guess I've become a hooligan because pushing it through the twisties at an elevation of 5800 ft I got 24 MPG. On the way home I got 40 at average speed of around 70 MPH.

Below 4,000 rpm - runs clean and it is functional in the lower gears, but stop it, your lugging me!

4,000 to 6,000 rpm - Usable get around in traffic power that is enough to beat out most cars and Harleys for that matter by 5K. Shifting is a little notchy down around 4K. She wants to rev higher.

6,000 to 9,000 rpm - Strong power, shifts like buttah. Good for very aggressive jump out in front of traffic in town riding. Ya better be packing a serious sports car to give cause to dig deeper than 7K, which is the cusp of the fun zone. 7K rpm is the prime sporty zone for corner carving in relaxed thrusty style. Exhaust howl getting good now baby! I spend a lot of time in this range while canyon carving.

Front end getting light in the lower gears, occurred to me today as the bars wagged a bit while abruptly giving her the gas to avoid a blind as a bat lane changing idiot that I really ought to get a steering damper Evidently loud pipes don't save lives, the Akra was at full chat and he kept on coming. This was one of those occasions where having get the hell out of the way literbike power at my command made for a safer motorcycle. If I was on a 600cc sport bike caught with my revs down, I would have been hit by that car, period.

9,000 to the limiter - Liquid speed, road narrows, fun to harass Hayabusas if the speed is below 125 mph. Sweet Superbike Jesus intake and exhaust music. Like a drug addict in need of a fix, I look for the right times and remote places to explore this zone as much as possible while keeping the rubber side down and the driver's license intact. Hang on man...

The modded riding experience is quite a bit different than stock, I must say. It runs very much like a friend's '03 GSXR1000 with a pipe and PCIII that I rode, except the FZ is a whole lot more comfy, the engine feels smoother at 5 figure revs, and it gets less attention without the full plastic That Suzook had top end speed on my FZ for days though. Aerodynamics I guess.
