Ok, I have an 04 Hayabusa. I would like to know from all the busa and GSXR owners, how many times in a week do you visit the gas station from a full tank?

I think I'm burning too much fuel and maybe need an adjustment since I installed my bolt-on exhaust and replaced the stock air filter.

Well my gas mileage is not as good as I thought. My tripometer mileage reads like 30.1 MPG for an average since I got my 05 and I have been "on it" a lil more since break in. So 800 miles with an average of around 30 MPG.

Did you go with a K&N and what kind of exhaust did you put on?

Probably should judge by how many miles you travel per tank.

Busa, I went with the K&N high flow and Yosh Bolt-on's. I get about 30.2 on my trip as well. It just seems like I visit the damn station at least twice a week. I am going to reset my meter at the next fill up and log the miles. good tip T!

the ride also pops a bit, not real bad, when you let off the throttle. I was thinking that i may be running a little rich and need a remap. what do you think Jay?

When I was really taking it easy on my first tank of gas my puter read 39.9, but my overall average (probably like 5 tanks) has been just over 30, similar to yours.

solo,

30 MPG is not bad for a busa!!! I have a 02 ZX-12R and I get 105 miles before my reserve comes on and then maybe about 130 before I really have to stop and get gas. My tank is 5.3 gallons in size. I would think your gas usage is normal, definitely much better than the 12.

cool, thanks for all of the input. I think i panicked (damn that spelling is horrible) when I've had to stop at least twice a week to fill up. I do take the scenic route home most times though.
