The operative phrase being "otherwise stock". With the correct setup, the engine will run extremely well and gas consumption will increase only modestly. I had a blueprinted '82 R100 with the 336 cam, Mikuni flat-slide carbs and Bub exhaust and it ran like a top and got 36-40mpg. Good power, too...

Wish I had it back!
