after getting my bike out of storage i've noticed that i'm getting about 20 miles less per fill up? does/has anybody used injector cleaner (like stp... the little bottles you pour in with gas) to clean your fuel injectors. Are those a good idea for bikes or not? any ideas on why such a drop off in mileage after storage???? THANKS

Did you change your oil before you stored? Hows your air cleaner, I read on another page here, this guy changed his oil, coolant and air cleaner before storing it. I would guess check your air cleaner. I stored mine in my garage and it got down to -30degrees here and had no problems so far. I let idle the engine for about an half hour then shut it off for an half hour the ran it at idle again for another half hour before I even rode at street speeds

Well the new deal around here and probably the nation is more ethanol in the fuel we burn. From what I've heard it's about a 10% decrease in mileage.
