> A heavy-hand on the throttle is the most-common problem... eg You should be getting around 35-40mph, unless you ride it like a sport bike.Recently got my first wing.
Checked the milage and it sucks. (25mpg)
Where should I start to improve this...
Hey wilf, dadztoy is correct. When you double the speed the drag is quadrupled. Furthermore, when the drag is quadrupled the power needed to keep that speed is the cube of the speed increase.I,m not shure of my highschool mathe was bad at it back them but I would think the drag at 80 would be way more than 4 times that at 40. And at about 120 or so your bike reachs it terminal vilocity which is caused when the drag gets higher than available hp
Is it time to go on a diet Larry! lol! Just kidding!...I have found that one of the main causes for low fuel mileage is the rider.
Gosh Larry that's what my girlfriend keeps telling me. lol! But sometimes you just gotta:You ain't right Kevin! :cheeky1:
