I have an 06 with 12K and use a 16T front and a 43 rear. I run Michilin t66 tires and keep them hard. I get 52 tops without the panniers and 46 with them on. Those are highway.How are you guys gettin' that kind of MPG? I ride mostly road, 65 mph speeds, stay at approx 5500 rpm and get right at 40 mpg. I have gotten 50 mpg twice, long uninterrupted ride that used most of the tank but 55-60 mpg would be great. Why the difference?
Dude, I am King of the mileage weenie's, I want to have the Anchorage Harley shop use their exhaust dynometer to properly set my carb and stock pipe up for top results this spring.Thanks Hardy : You pushed me over the edge, I'm a mileage weenie so I'm going to run a 17 T on street tires. Then when I have other plans I'll change the rubber to something more appropriate as well as the ft sprocket back to the 15 T BUT I'm thinking hard about picking up a 14 T as well !!
