Hello guys! 2005 R6. I have a serious issue and have run out of ideas. My bike is absolutely horrible on gas mileage. For a full tank, I’ll get lucky to even get 80 miles. It doesn’t even make sense. I even put a power commander 5 , tuned it, hoping that I would get better mileage (a better air/ fuel ratio) and nothing. Anything extra done is: after market exhaust, k&n air filter, and after market headers, cat and recently changed my spark plugs. One last thing, my bike smells awfully of gas while riding, and once done riding. Smells like a corvette on e10, quite excessive. I don't see my bike leak gas or ever see puddles on the ground. Any help would be great, thank you for reading!

Have a tuner with a good reputation make a custom map. Did you use the same plugs and did you get the coil packs seated on the plugs good?

You might have a fuel leak. Also check fuel pressure, your bike might be dumping excessive fuel and you are running way too rich. Do you feel loss in power?

I might have to check around for a different tuner. I used ngk spark plugs and believe i seated the coil packs correctly but will have to check for sure

No loss in power at all! I actually feel the fastest I have ever ridden. But I do need to check my fuel pressure
