Thread: Mpg

  1. #31
    I have had my bike just over 12 months and have clocked up 11,000 miles touring both in Europe and the UK. On a tour,with a mixture of A & B roads, no matter how fast you "think" you are, you will average nothing much better than 40 MPH. For my full 11,000 miles I have averaged 42 MPG, giving an average of 3 hours riding between fuel stops. To me this is plenty of time in the saddle, before a little break is needed. Cant be more please with the bike having done everything from a sub 1 min lap of Brands Hatch to a 650 mile single day back to the UK from South France.

    ^ I agree and concur; ain’t that the truth. 100% spot on. I’ve similar experiences and like for the great all round bike.
    Yamaha MT-10, > 13k miles | 96 Aprilia Pegaso (Re-Built) 655, > 85k | 09 Kawasaki KLX 450R , W/Ends & Other Off-road... | Last / Previous: Yamaha MT-09 7k / Triumph Tiger 955i, 22k, 01 Yamaha YZ 250, 00 Suzuki DRZ 400E & 95 DR 350S ?, 91 Honda CBR 600FM 11k, & 86 Honda VF500F2 12k | 89 Kawasaki KMX 200 & many other 2 strokes...

    The average use will be a lot less. I am from Holland and i drive 120km/hour on cruise control in the 5th gear, and drive about 1 liter on 16,5 km.

    This way you can remap the ECU, the same you can do after an Exhaust change.

    Greeting, WIllem
    How can I reset the ECU ? I can't drop mine below 7L/100km ( and that is easy driving outside of the city )

    ^ I’m guessing here... I wonder does disconnecting the battery terminals for a while reset some of the ECU’s learnt memory.

    Yes that trick should work but, I think theese bikes don't have learn memory or learning capability like cars do.

    Cheers. Sounds right. Mine got a new ECU, as light came on few times and it is still a thirsty bugger, I love it tho. MPG is an non-issue once you accept its a bike that can accelerate like a rocket.

    ^ Yup! From Handbook:

    “Tips for reducing fuel consumption
    Fuel consumption depends largely on your riding style. Consider the following tips to reduce fuel consumption:

     Turn the engine off instead of letting it idle for an extended length of time (e.g., in traffic jams, at traffic lights or at railroad)
     Shift up swiftly, and avoid high engine speeds during acceleration.
     Do not rev the engine while shifting down, and avoid high engine speeds with no load on the engine.”

    (Hmm the first point and especially the first bit of the Last point is fairly interesting and that is really possible achievable as the slipper clutch works really well; so no bloody throttle blipping is actually needed for / on downshifts; old habits do die hard tho). Just click it down the gears and dump out the Clutch with out blipping the Throttle as it helps scrub speed of too; without any rear wheel skipping. Try it, I have, the slipper Clutch is a gem.

    I looked up BMW S1000R on Fuelly.com. The average for over 100,000 miles reported was 6.5 Liters per 100 kms. Having one that does 4.8 is a rare gem.

    Comparing the S1kR power weight ratio with the MT-10 pertaining to gas mileage is likely close on the average bike. Fuelly puts the S1000R, MT-10 and Tuono V4 very close.

    There are always exceptions both ways, but I wouldn’t buy any comparable model expecting 25% better mileage than average.
    You can't have everything. Where would you put it?

    I've had mine for 11500klms now and it's always been very consistent. Any time I'm cruising on the highway I get 4.7-4.9L/100klms.

    Of course my example was literally slabbing it on a highway at 110kph for 350klms. My place is only 6klms from the highway so this was best case.
