My 2002 with the -1/+2 gets around 30mpg at the most
Im in actually clocking mine this tank, so far ive gone 100 miles after filling up almost to the top. Specs say the 01's have 4.5 gal not sure if thats including reserve. Im hoping over 30 would be nice...

The most I can get in my tank is 3.6ish, I have no idea where you're getting the 4.5

Wow... here we are again.. and me still feeling pretty spiffy...

I get MINIMUM 165 miles out of a tank on my 02. I've seen over 200 on long trips. That's going usually 3-5 miles after the light comes on.

I don't baby it, but I don't race, either.

must be the carbs :D

The most I've seen out of mine is 180 to a tank, but my brain only knows how to communicate "Twist" to my right hand when I ride. :)

I have an 01 r6, with a Vance & Hines S4 Titanium slip on.

What did u do to the carbs?
Not real sure :dunce: Original owner is a bike mechanic.. something about stage 2 carbs :D Haven't chatted with him long enough to get details, but its stompin' fast! No issues chasing down my buddies 750 gixxer or besting a zx7r on top end... but its all for gas mileage, right? :D
