I think it depends on you & the type of riding. I find that off road in the cedars burns more fuel than cross country with a load. I was consistently getting 66 mpg cross country before installing the JD tune box. It now gets 55 mpg consistently cross country & more like 35-40 in the trees. Which, IMHO, is not bad.
BTW - Running the 3.4 gal / 13L KTM tank. If on a long ride I carry a RotoPax for backup. Originally, I would get 180 ish miles on the 3.4 tank.
Additionally, I know of others around here that reported similar original performance.
