4.8 gallon tank and 75 mpg give a pretty good range on my 04 Ninja 250.

I don't even think about fuel until the trip meter shows 300 miles or more, which is typical before hitting reserve.

Current 90 day average on my KLX686 is 64.25 mpg, with a high tank of 67.7 mpg.

Needle selection on the FCR41 is very important for economy at low throttle settings vs power at WFO.

KLX 650 sprocket question

Did the factory front sprocket have a built in step on one side, both sides or neither?

Replacing sprockets/chain and the new front looks to be outside the line of the rear.

First tire I've ever had that does not grip at all on the squiggly tar patches. Almost folded the front several times now, rear is fine over them.

What tires have you had that do this?
