I’ve checked it against a Garmin sat-nav and it is what I said.

So, out today on a lovely ride. I filled up at the start and then filled again at the end. I did around 60 miles at motorway speeds and the rest over Mostly A roads (with about 10 miles of B roads). We didn't hang about and I had a great time.

I did 212 miles and the bike used 14.95 litres of fuel. According to my calculator that is 64.45 mpg.

I'm not complaining!!!!!

My odo said I'd done 198.5 miles. Garmin said 212. Which fits in with the 16 to 17 tooth sprocket upgrade I did.

I see.
Tonight I did indicated 57.4 miles using 5.28 litres 10.28 per mile or 1.16 gallons = 49.48 mpg.
Add the 6.5% makes 61.13 miles, 11.57 mile per litre or 52.7 mpg really. So I am doing over 11 ish miles per litre.

Yes, assuming you have changed the gearing from standard.

So you guys go with one extra tooth on the gearbox sprocket, this makes the gearing higher so less acceleration but higher top speed (in other words less revs for the same speed). This makes speedo more accurate.
But IMHO if you do any gearing changes on the big biffer you want to go the other way and sacrifice top speed (150+mph??) for more torque and better acceleration.

Would just like to clarify my previous comments about miles per litre fluctuating wildly on my mk2. The reading changes of course as you are riding depending on your speed. I should not have given the impression there is something wrong with the bike which is a pretty good all round bike, the best I have had I would say.
My only concern (apart from the weight when pushing around in the drive,which is as you would expect from a 1000cc bike) is experimenting with the screen to minimise turbulence. I am currently trying Palmer brackets.

To give BeefyEggo a benchmark, I get on average 47mpg from my 2008 Blackbird and 55mpg from my 2011 CBF Mk.II.
