18 miles to the gallon

My Brutale 750cc with an arrow can is running at 18 miles to the gallon.
What are your thoughts?

That doesn't seem like very good mileage unless you are living at red line.

My gas milage sucked when my hub bearings were going bad and my chain needed to be replaced. But I don't think it ever was that bad.

Even then, something's wrong. I used to get 25 no matter what, track time, touring, commuting, canyons, always 25.

Yes I tried second gear, and third gear too.

5.5K miles on the counter, the rear hubs already? Nah.
Well, time to investigate, everybody seems on the same wave, something isn't right.
