Default Fuel consumption, help!!

Now that my better half has seen the light and traded in her Cagiva Raptor for a Brutale S, coupled with my 910s, our fuel bills are getting silly.
now for the Questions; What is the best solution to improve the fuel consumption? Is fitting a power commander the best way to go, and if so which model, and is a Dyno run needed?
Is there a cheaper option available? as long as it's not riding easier, which is almost impossible!!
Both bikes have a midpipe and my 910s also has the MV Corse chip fitted.
I hope someone can help for the sake of our bank balance!! Thanks in advance.

I've noticed quite a difference when I run mine in normal/rain mode.

But what fun is that? LOL

My 910 R is great set up , with mv corse chip and pipe and runs 10 liters for 100 km regular riding.
When you ride harsh around 12 liters which is normal imho.
It,s a bike with 152 hp from 909 cc , what did you except ? My bonnevile is tuned and has 80 hp out of 865cc and runs at 5.4 liters for 100 km.
The more hp .... and brutties are thristy.....

Thanks Eddy. I'll have a good read at the link you highlighted.
I get about 170 km before the low fuel light comes on and am averaging around 12 liters to 100 km.
Maybe I'm expecting too much from our Brutale's, but then again I am a stingy Scotsman!!!

I have recently fitted a Microtec to my R1090. After a bit of help and adjustment ironing out a few small issues, my ride at the weekend - country roads and freeway, so not much stop start from tank full to top up on the return was 172km, 10.3L. Speeds up to 160km/hr, mostly around 90-120km/hr. Much better throttle control in traffic. The tank before averaged about 7.6L/100km mainly around town. Might be worth considering.

Cheers

Wayne

I'm leaning towards getting a PC3 for both bikes. Are there downloadable maps for the 910s and 750 with midpipes?
I've also read that the ecu chip can be rewritten to give better fuel consumption, but I'm not sure where I can have this done and if it gives a good result. any info would be much appreciated.
Cheers, Dave.

2008 910R with full exhaust system, re-flashed ECU, air intake restrictors removed. Runs like a rapped ape. Never dynoed it but it absolutely keeps up with an equally set up Ducati 1098 Streetfighter. I set the CO level measured at the exhaust muffler to about 3.5%. That's on crappy, poisened, full of ethanol California 91 octane pump gas.

My 910R very consistently gets 25-26 mpg. That's about 9.2l - 9.5l/100km if my math is right. It almost doesn't seem to matter if I cruise freeways at 80-90mph or agressively ride in the twisties.
