Just went over to Carson City NV over Carson Pass(CA to NV) this weekend with my sumo set up and got 170 miles out of my clockwork 3.2 gl tank.I was averaging 70-75 mph. Everyones preference in final gearing, riding styles and terrain is also going to be a factor in the fuel mileage discussion.Overall I am very happy with the bike its the best I have ever owned. I am also very happy with the products I bought for my bike thanks to the info I gained here and vendors that are active on this site, Big thanks to HDB and Globetrottin for making well built and thought out products.
Didn't someone post on here that you couldn't use the cooling fan with the Clockworks tank???
Anyway, I put down my deposit on a '13 500EXC today
I am already scheming about a Baja Designs Squadron headlight (need to check on the stator output) and sumo wheels. I like the idea of the KTM rear wheel with the cush hub, and the lower price for a complete Warp 9 front wheel assembly. Has anyone seem them in close proximity so see how similar the rims look? In other words, would it be noticeable if you did that mix-n-match setup?
