Achieving 400 km on a full fuel tank is not that difficult if you own an fuel injected MK2 (2003 till present).

If you own an carb fuelend MK1 (< 2003) it's an different story though... 250 km on the same fuel capacity riding two-up at highway speeds is no exception.

Can be modified easily however by changing the carb settings (dynojet), adding an after-marked air filter (BMC, K&N).

Fuel consumption, 2003.09 XL1000V (inj)

My lowest consumption was 4,64 l/100 km (with topcase and tankbag, without passenger). Between two fuel stop i road 451 km and could fill "only" 20,92 l.

The average during 72 000 km is 5,46 l/100 km (20 % of last 25 000 km were off-road usage)

Wicked fuel mileage

I get around 350km per tank before my light comes on in around town commuting. I get over 400km per tank before the light comes on touring at 110 to 110kms per hour.

My dero is a 2006 model year.

I have yet to ride two up any distance.

Iinteresting Tiny, thanks. I"ve got a 08 KLR, getting ready to pop for a either a new 08 V or a used 06 ST1300 (recoginizing it's road limitations vs the V, I'm leaning towards V only so I CAN take some dirt/gravel when it shows up). Interesting the V 2 up can match or almost, the KLR solo, particularly with more weight and heavier loading.

Have you compared fuel ON road as well, just for interest.

no it was just by chance that 1 of my mates borrows my klr for a ride i filled them both then we stopped for fuel at the same spot that was how i got that i dont usually have both bikes at the same time to measure but haveing the 2 together i feel is the best way of checking as they where both on the same road no varriables

Just got back from a 3200 km trip around the near North of Ontario and back down to Southern Ontario. We travelled on the roadways at posted Ontario speed limits and averaged 4.54 L/100 Km.

So 60 MPG Imperial gallon. How the hell does one drive the posted speed limits in Ontario, around Lake Superior?

With a significant amount of restraint. It's too beautiful to miss the scenery. PS we had my son with us from Calgary who is a new rider and never been in that area before. Had great ride.

On one tank of floggin it in and out of work I managed a craptastic: 7.34 l/100kms for a limit of 334 kms per tank. This was at a steady 130-135kms and twisting the wick at every opportunity.

So I though I would just run her sane and took a spin around southern Ontario to Dover for some footlongs and managed a very easy 13.5liters at 264 km for: 5.11 l/100km which would get about 489 kms on a tank

Out side of driving steady and keeping the max speed at 110kmh I didn't do any real drastic changes so if you tried to stretch it out it would be even more impressive!

Mileage and highway pegs

My bike is now broken in fully. I drove to Port Dover and back this week and averaged 5.25 litres per 100 kms. That was in speeds avg 90 - 110 kph on the way there and 115 kph on the way home. At one fuel stop where I had driven 404 kms I could only put in 17.8 litres! I'm very impressed with the highway mileage and optimistic for my planned drive up the Dempster next year.

On a related note, does anyone know where I can find highway pegs for the Dero? My legs got very cramped/sore anytime I stayed on the bike for more than 2 hrs straight.

Do you have crash bars? I put my legs on top of the SW Motech crash bars for short times. That works OK for me. I can do 3 plus hours but perfer to stop every 150 Km or so just to take a break.

I have Givi crash bars and they are very hard to put your legs up on. It works for about 30 secs and then they dig so much into your legs that you have to put them down.

There has to be some after-market pegs out there somewhere.
