I guess the first thing i will tackle is another can of seafoam and then an airfilter change. I got great milage on a 200 mile trip yesterday but did not keep the exact number. I am riding to pheonix on friday so will keep track of my exact milage.
Thanks everyone. This is a great forum. I am on a great Honda forum aswell as a great Valk forum. Got to love the internet, which ihelped Al Gore invent
I get a consistant 38mpg on my '95 SE. Tank after tank after tank.
The funny thing about checking your mileage is you MUST do several consecutive fillups to get a true picture. One fillup that gives you an exceptionally high or low figure means nothing.Document at least 3 consecutive fillups (5 is better) and then average them together. THAT is your true mileage.
It all depends what road you may be riding at the time. Twisties on my GL1800 I get anywhere from 42 to 48 (I have gotten 50 MPG on easy backroads) - Interstate highways pulling my trailer 65 MPH avg speed from 38 to 42 depending on the wind speed - head wind or tail wind.
I personally do not care what mileage I am getting aslong as there is GAS available when I need it!
