    Soon to be 200 owner!

    Found one at my local shop.....but he wanted $3995 for a 2 year old one with over 2000 miles on it. You can buy them all day long for $3999 brand new with warranty. Called the closest Yamaha dealer and he expected to have a couple of 2017's in this week. My name is on one of them!
    I have been lurking around here for a bit. Seems like everyone richens them up a bit to cure the EPA leanness....other than that, what are some of the must do's? Are they geared tall as well. This is going to be my wifes bike for fire roading and gentle trail rides in W Oregon and the back country of Eastern Oregon. We are at 400 feet elevation and would goof around from there on up to 4-5000 feet.

    I will probably use it to go to town and back as well.....the claimed 78 mpg sounds great! I plan on this bike never seeing a drop of gas with ethanol in it. Premium non-ethanol has been around a while here. My station told me that they were going to start carrying non-ethanol Regular grade fuel soon.

    Getting excited to add this bike to the stable!

    Thanks for the welcome! What kind of real world mileage are you getting out of yours?

    Welcome. I have rejetted ours because of aftermarket pipes. We are getting @ 65mpg off road and road because of that and lower gearing. Who cares 60-78mpg these things are fun to ride.

    I went out for a good portion of the day on Sunday. Filled up and kept track and refilled after the ride. 77.6 US mpg. (3.03L/100km)
    Most of that was running 80km/h secondary roads (say 53mph) and some slow dirt roads and a little bit of trail old railbed). I'd have done more trail but on Saturday some places around here got the equivalent of 2 months rain so things were pretty wet.
    I did keep track the last few times I was out and while I forget the exact numbers, it was always over 70.

    I get a out 100 miles per tank with a bit more than reserve left or about 60 to 65 mpg. Add hand gaurds and a new front tire and you are pretty capable off trail. Those two mods will save you a lever or two and some white knuckle riding making you think the bike is less than capable. You can then choose your next series of mods to suit your style and climate as needed! O ring chain, racks, foot pegs, lighting, bar risers, all sorts of fun farkling lies ahead!

    CV carb with a bit of tuning works OK with moderate elevation changes too btw, only good part of a cv carb IMO!
