Default what kind of milage does your bike get?

I checked my mpg and with mostly highway driving I only got 32mpg, and my speedometer is off so I actually got worse, im guessing it may actually be 27. My bike does have a PCIII installed so maybe thats causeing it, idk.
Just wondering what kinda milage others are getting and what may be causing such poor milage.

Been getting chitty mileage but all city driving, chain needs a lily adjustment and experimenting with octane.

I have a program that tracks MPG after every fillup. Highest so far has been 27 MPG on plus. Worst has been 22 MPG on 93 octane. Have a tank of 87 in right now and changed the air filter so I will see what j get next fill.

What'll affect MPG:
Chain tension
Wrong octane
Riding habits
Dirty injectors / fuel lines
Spark plugs
Bad mapping

where can I find that program? I think tracking mpg's on a bike is a lot harder to do unless you stick the gas nozzle all the way in and just let it automatically stop which doesn't even come close to filling the tank.

holy crap, you guys are getting some poor mileage. granted, i don't ride like a banshee but my 1k gets better mileage than yours. i'd see 40~45 mpg regularly on my f4i.

Commuting I get 45-50mpg. Track day will drop it into the 30's. You mapping is off, your fuel pressure regulator is bad, your injectors are clogged, you air filter is cogged, your spark plugs are fouled, something. OR you hate shifting.

Mid 40's in town, and near 50 on the highway.

I ride about 50 miles a day on my commute to work on the highway (fun) around 75 mph, and I get right at about 45 mpg.

45 mpg is my average. I've never gotten worst than 35mpg. I would look into getting a map to see if that helps.
