    I get about 130KM on a tank of gas, excluding res.



    How about you guys, anyone drain the tank completely?

    It sounds like you're getting HORRIBLE gas mileage, just like I get. I've read of people on this forum getting 80, 90, 100 miles to the gallon. You and I seem to be getting about 65 MPG. Maybe the name Rodney=Bad Gas Mileage. Someone correct me if I'm talking nonsense here.

    hmm, my name is not rodney and if the guy here who said the TW has 1.4g's until reserve is correct, I'm getting 65-72. My best before reserve was 102, my last was 94 and I ride pretty conservatively, never above 55 with 14/45 gearing.



    kinda sucks for a 200, I had a ninja 500 that easily got 60, and a rebel 250 that ALWAYS got at least 85 even winding it out all the time. That damn thing would of easily gotten over 100 if you rode it easy. maybe 110-120. Just as/more efficient as a 50cc and you can do 80 if you need to..beats being stuck at 35 mph. 250's kick ass!



    I guess the TW just lacks the power to do 55-60 as easily as the 250's 14/45 might be a bit too tall and require more too, 14/47 is probably more efficient for street, I dunno...oh well. 65 is good enough I guess.

    You sir, are to be congratulated. There is no way I could ride that far, that long, at that speed.

    I have 2 tw's one 2008, one 2009.



    one I have ridden 2,000+ the other close to 3,000.



    I have lifetime average on both 83+ mpg.



    One has been ridden a lot more off road than the other, but nothing difficult.

    Just finished a 240 mile ride in the Willowa/Blue Mtns of eastern OR and WA on my completely stock 2010. Some pavement, lots of dirt and very gnarly tracks. 83 mpg.



    My buddy on a 2006 TW that has been mod to different gears and carb settings did MUCH WORSE. About 65 mpg.
