Have been religious about break-in and will pass 500 miles by the end of the day. I’m getting about 14mpg less in urban and 20mpg less in highway than EPA estimates. I generally cruse between 2200 and 3800 RPM rev once when taking off from a stop and rev at each downshift when stopping. These are lifelong habits and have serious doubts that my engine’s drinking problem is substantially related. Does anyone have an isea why my bike is 34% less fuel efficient than Buell advertises?,I just picked up a '08 XB12R at the start of the season, and was getting really bad mpg the first 1k miles also. I just hit 3.6k miles and am getting about 130 miles to the tank riding hard. Id say give it till 1k-1.5k miles before giving it much worry, during the break in period its going to be low.,,,

1997 Mercury Mountaineer What is Catalyst Efficiency Below (Bank

it means the catalyst is worn out, the efficiency is monitored by sensors, when the Cat falls below a certain reading or "threshold" the code is generating telling u that u need a new catalytic converter.

Check engine light on for sometime; Response to throttle sluggish

If your catalytic converter is "below efficiency" or otherwise clogged, you will lose power as you drive and the vehicle heats. The more you drive the vehicle, the worse the problem will become. The exhaust can't escape properly through the catalytic converter, therefore your engine won't run properly. Your issues are related, and if you replace your catalytic converter they should go away.

Buell Backfiring

hesitate and then stall out completely. When I restart the engine it  immediately turns over as if nothing has happened.While in neutral I can rev it to redlineno problem. This will happen inconsistentlymaybe every few months on  average. Could it be the fuel,the line, the EFI? Any ideas?,I personally think its the pushrod valves with the EFI. I think that the EFI responds in a quick blip faster than the pushrods can open the valves, so you don't have as good atomizing of the air/gas charge. Just the nature of the beast. Course, this is assuming you have had your TPS set and shes good and broken in.,,,

Fuel Problem

i just bought a 01 buell xb12scg a few weeks ago. I have put 1000 miles on it and now it only has 2600 miles and it drove fine one minute and i went to start it the next and it would start. I took a plug out and it was dry. what could this most likely be? fuel pump? it turns over fine and everything.with the earlier models (x1 s1 m2, etc) you will avoid lots of problems when switching to carb. Other than that, it could be the fuel pump, blockage in fuel line, malfunction in ECM, etc...,,,
