40-50 depending on how you drive it and where you go. Hard riding off road less mileage. Street riding taking it easy better. Check out www.drz.info for some good tips on the DRZ. Also www.thumpertalk.com under the DRZ section is great info and more than you ever wanted to know about your bike. I'v had mine for 2 years now and love it. If your going to go off road at all get diffrent tires. The stock death wings are dangerious off road. Good choice in bikes.

My bike is Tvs victor 2002 it is not more mileage. So I will be fitting of local made of gas kit. Is it any other problems. How to fit of gas kit.


Please do not mess with the fuel metering. All motorcycles are as efficient as they can be right from the factory. if you want better mileage you MUST get a smaller bike. I repeat, if you mess with your fuel system, your bike will just run poorly and you may actually damage it. Anyone saying they can improve your mileage with a "KIT" is just stealing your money and possibly ruining your bike.

Tip

Better tire wear and better gas mileage.


Make sure you check your tire pressure on a regular basis. Incorrect or low tire pressure can result in poor gas mileage, cupping of the tires, uneven tire wear, short life of tires and unstable riding conditions. I usually put all tires front and rear at 40 p.s.i. It rolls better which in turn gives a little bit better gas mileage, is an easy number to remember so there's no guessing and you get a better overall tire wear.

Hi, Anonymous fill up the gas tank and reset the odometer to "0" or record the current mileage the next time you refuel record the mileage divide the kilometers driven by the liters of fuel it took to refill and you have KPL or mileage, I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Bajaj but despair not for a mere $0 you can download another one.

Bad gas mileage


usually due to bad "needle and seats" AKA float valves in carbs on older models that do not seal properly and cause rich running conditions, hence poor fuel mileage. I also suspect the sparkplug electrodes are dark brown or black in color indicating the rich condition. they should burn a clean light tan color. A qualified technician should properly overhaul the carbs and adjust as necessary.

What is the expected gas mileage for a 2007 suzuki gsxr 600. And does being stuck in traffic for 30 min. or so affect the gas mileage?


It really depends on the country and riding style of the owner.
In the UK for instance, we will be lucky to ride 5000 per year due to the weather. In California I would expect to be able to cover 20000 miles per year.
All you need to do is listen to the engine both when cold, (for rattles and main bearing wear) and hot for smoke etc indicating top end and piston wear.
If in doubt, ask at a Suzuki Dealer local to your whereabouts.

HI I've got T'birth 900 1997 and have big concern about fuel consumption. It does about 27mpg and I do think that this is way too much. How can I improve range of my bike???


Accurate gas mileage is difficult to determine due to the constant variations in driving conditions and styles. Even the conversion mathematics can cause what appears to be low gas mileage. With a motorcycle higher and lower mileages can be made due to wind direction and if the motorcycle has a windshield, single rider or two. Hera are a few points to check, adjust and consider for better gas mileage.
First the tires make sure they are at the proper air pressure the manufacture recommends.
The tires are of the correct size for the motorcycle, oversize tires will through off the odometer and cause a faults reading.
Another is that the speedometers/odometers on motorcycle are notoriously inaccurate, compounding the problem with gas mileage.
Make sure your drive line is in good order, I believe your motorcycle is chain driven so make sure it is properly lubricated and the sprockets are in good serviceable order.

Things to do mechanically to improve gas mileage.
Have the engine serviced at regular intervals. All lubrication's are not created equal, switch to a motorcycle grade of synthetics using a new oil filter at each change. Make sure the ignition and valve timing are within specifications and the valves are adjusted properly. With a multiple cylinder engine the carburetors must be balanced and the recommended grade of gas used. As mentioned above make sure the tires are in good serviceable condition, properly balanced, aligned and at the correct pressure.

Now for the rider.
If you are flogging this thing at every stop light, seeing red line every day, burping the throttle on down shifts, spending time sitting in city traffic or carving canyon switch backs and hair pins on and off the throttle then there is no way you are going to get good gas mileage.

Riding the motorcycle as you would normally. Every bike I've had, has had an odometer and or trip odometer, so you can see what your driving style is actually doing for gas mileage. fill the gas tank set the trip odometer to zero and then ride it 100 miles (give a couple miles either way) then fill it again to the same level. I generally fill so the gas level is just at the bottom of the neck. Then write it down the cost and gallons (liters) the trip mileage and the odometer mileage. Do this for five 100 mile fill ups then take you gas mileage from that.

The next test.
Do the same test above but alter you driving habits, ride the motorcycle conservatively, no red line, no burping the throttle on down shifts, limit your time in traffic by leaving earlier or later to get around the traffic congestion. Keep your speed down to the limit or a touch over, limit the weight of the gear or two up riding. Do this and you will see a huge difference in you gas mileage and when I say huge I'd say taking your 27mpg and stuffing that up to 50/55mpg.

I'm in Canada so our five gallons is the US six gallon so this comparison will be off but the difference between the numbers will be seen.
My GL 1000 Goldwing average 40mpg in the city only 47mpg on the highway.
My GL 1500 Goldwing average 42mpg city and 58mpg on the highway with two up and 50 pounds of gear
My 750 Magna average 42mpg city and 55mpg on the highway single rider light on gear
Previous to the Honda's my 650, 750 and the "new" Bonneville all gave me 38mpg city and averaged 48 to 50mpg highway.
Hey I've written a small novel here but I think you can see that gas mileage and motorcycle has a lot to do with riding style.

I have bought Hero Honda Splendor plus 2005 model in second hand through a dealer and after service I get a mileage of 50 Kmpl. Please advise me how to improve my mileage. How much shall I expect? ...


I've come across this motorcycle and complaint of poor "mileage" several times. There are so many variables to the question it's almost impossible to predict what "mileage you will achieve. Things like a single rider with light gear, riding two up will reduce mileage, running the motorcycle at high speed will reduce mileage, city traffic or open road makes a huge difference even in this motorcycle. You are not helping mileage sitting there with the engine running while in traffic. Your driving habits are you hard on the throttle when you take off from a stop? Sounds as if I'm scolding you but if you are concerned about mileage on this motorcycle then you need to adjust your riding style AND the biggest this with the Honda Hero is its tires. The tires on the Honda Hero are specially designed for that motorcycles performance and mileage, if they are under inflated you will get poor gas mileage. Check your tire pressure or have the dealer do it if you don't have the gauge.

I have been told that Suzuki Boulevard C50's need to have their cam chains replaced every 24000 kilometers. If this is the case I will need to be doing mine every 2 years???


Some have problems with the tensioners at that mileage, but not as a rule. I am at about twice that mileage on my '05 with no related issues.
