Mine has decreased also , since the exhaust mods ....Went from upper 30's to lower 30's . And I was thinking maybe it's just me trying to goose it all the time to hear that great new exhaust .

Maybe ... and I mean MAYBE ... its because since the bike is taking in more air due to the airbox mod, the PC's map has programmed the bike to spit out more gas to keep it from running lean. I'm saying "maybe" because I can't think of anything else.

I have Brock's Gen3 exhaust and run it with the track map. I have not lost any MPG since installing it, so I'm not sure what's going on with your bike. And you say you've lost power ... ? Where? If it's 3000rpm and under, I have as well. But anything above that and the stock power is there and then some.

BDE, air box mod, pair valve....I'm down to 33....I was at over 43. It all happened overnight. Nobody to blame but myself.

Mine is down to 33 or 34 as well....with lots of mods. I can get 40 or more if Im REALLY easy on it....like lotsa riding in 6th around 45-50 mph. And if you google failure you get Michael Moore's website. Funny.

How do you guys do it. Im lucky if I get 27-28 MPG. Well maybe I need to lay off the throttle.

I have found that riding upright (verses in a more tucked position), costs me at least 5mpg.

I don't usually ride in a tuck (just very windy days, or, when I am riding too fast ;-). I just was performing an experiment relating to gas mileage.

I have to ask how do you get such good fuel mileage? I get maybe around 30-32 city or highway. Is there a problem with my busa or am I just using too much throttle?

Well i guess 43.7 isn't anything to worry about! But B 4 my Po'mans T/B sync it was getting 44 and on the trips to Asheville 700m 1 way it got 48. Zuki sets #1 & 2 cyl to idle lean to get past EPA stuff i think. Anyone know for sure? It idles strong now with no stalling even @ 1K idle RPM. You can hear all 4 cyl firing now and the 4500rpm buzz is less!
