And it comes at a cost too. On my old KLR, with a full tank and my fat-ass ex-girlfriend on the back, that thing was so damn top heavy.
And to be honest, the KLR doesn't get that great of mileage anyway. I averaged 240 miles/tank. If I could get 200 out of this small tank, I would be more than happy.
