sidenote: I have an aftermarket pipe, don't know if that affects it
I have a stock(as far as engine goes) 2011 KLR. I have put about 600 miles on it now(450 of those in the past week). With mixed riding I'm getting 40-42 mpg. I'm not babying the bike but I'm not necessarily beating on it either. The more I ride mine the better I like it.
