I believe I went somewhere in the neighbourhood of 463km, which brings me somewhere in the 280 mile range. I was buzzing around NW Pennsylvania earlier this year, Really pleasant ride, and riding in top gear around 90 km/h.
Heading up #62 to Gowanda, I could not believe that I had not hit a gas station yet. Nothing around for miles. I was prepared to just roll into a farmer's driveway and ask for gas. Can't remember what the receipt read in terms of gallons /litres, but I was impressed.
Running a 16T front sprocket and I probably did not have the Madstaad screen on there.
I must attempt the 300 mile mark.

|donnieballgame||Oh man, new owner new to the forum, Iíve been avgn 45-48 mpg, donít know this secret method but I carry a small reserve tank, prob 20oz, I think I maxed at 220ish, didnít go into reserve but she started sputtering and went off on me lol, I was on a small hill though. I ride about 350per week would love to improve the mpg a little, typical ride is 70 for 8 miles the rest is 55 or less.|

Speedo sais 80mph, witch is GPS, 77,5-78
Instead of getting the bumble bee color, I should have went with the camo, as it would be more stealthy.
I am very happy with it, but the yellow attracts bees, so one needs to look before just jumping on and grabbing things.
I should have taken a pic, as I was hauling grain for a friend and they have bee hives in that area. They did not want me to leave with the bike.
It would be funny/not funny, if anyone with this color, got tapped in the side, and the person said, I didn't see it.

60 plus MPG would be great! My best was 58 i average around 54 have done 300 3 times. My speeds vary from 55 to 70 most of the time around 60.
Lineman, i cant understand why your mileage is so bad except for the 75 plus speeds, try some Amzoil synthetic next oil change should gain 2 or 3 MPG And dont forget KLRs use oil above 5k check the oil level regularly many KLR owners have learned the hard way!!

Well. When I get to TX in 3 or so weeks.
I'll have to do a sprocket shoot out for myself. I can do an rpm on same rout days on the 17 tooth. Then put the 15 back on and do same rpm rout days, and see what happens. It would be nuts if running higher rpm on this thing gets better mpgs. I also need to check and probably clean my air filter.
I am 5.11 and about 165-168lbs.
But even before crash bars n panniers, I still got 42mpg with 15 sprocket when new in TX. I put the 17 on around 600 miles.

|Surfersami||Lineman, I live a mile back on a gravel road, but all my other riding is almost all country roads in the NC/SC Piedmont, rolling hills. 55 is my top speed usually, and close to 45 is an average according to my gps. 55 - 58 mpg is what I usually end up with in "normal" driving.|
