Miles Per Gallon

Hey All,

I was the first 910R to have the race exhaust put on by Pro Italia in Glendale, CA. All that aside, it took a week to do cuz the bike had clogged throttle bodies. They ran through 2 Eproms, lots of diagnostics, et. al., because they thought it was an EFI/programming issue. They recommended I NOT have installed the PC Commander (which I bought months ago) as that's what the Eprom is supposed to do. I've had the bike a week and the fuel consumption is even WORSE, an all time low of 20mpg, down from my usual 23mpg. God, this is awful. I love my bike but is there any way to improve fuel consumption? Should I bite the dust and put the PC Commander on anyway? (Pro Italia unfortunately does not have a dyno machine, which surprised me as they're a very race-oriented shop. I'll have to find another shop to install it and create a custom map.) Any ideas?

I don't have the R, but I consistently get 35 MPG out of my 910. Stock chip but have removed the cat.

That was one of the advertised advantages of the 910--that it actually got better gas mileage.

I also bought a '06 910 Brutale from Pro Italia and get a low light at approx 100miles odo. I live next to Castaic Lake, California and have a road course right there. I have gotten the low light at just over 80 miles when I've realy cranked on the bike with lots of full throttle squirts between corners. I have only (2) 120-140 mile rides with my new Corsa Inox system that includes head pipes and collector exactly the same as the promised 910R system, it also came with a chip mapped to my VIN number.. I am running stock mufflers. I have noticed no change in fuel consumption but I need a few more rides. I will report back.

I've been getting a consistant 27-28 MPG on my stock 910. It only has 900 miles on it so hopefully it'll it 30 MPH with more miles.

I have the racing exhaust installed on the 910R, without power commander for now, and getting ~22mpg in backroad/city travel. It doesn't seem much different after the installation of the pipes. The pc on my F4 helped the mileage a little

If you are getting around 30mpg on your 910, I would consider that excellent. I get 25mpg. That mileagle did not change one bit after I installed headers + midpipe and PCIII. My riding is all backroads.

When I custom map PC's, I set them up for best performance.
If a customer is concerned about gas mileage, I can set them up leaner in the cruise area to help.

MV's will get 25-30mpg under most situations. If you want super economy, scooters get around 100mpg.

With only 900miles on my 750, I am getting 30-33mpg (mostly backroad/hwy).
I would like to get better mileage but its not about saving money, it has more to do with trips. I usually go to Big Bend NP once or twice a year, and gas stations are few and far between down there. I don't like the idea of sweating between fill-ups.
I wonder if a (taller)sprocket change before a road trip would give a few more miles per tank?

You gotta be crazy, gotta have a real need....
