100lbs lighter

2000 CBR929RR 434lbs wet
2002 CBR954RR 429lbs wet
2004/5 CBR1KRR 466lbs wet
2006/7 CBR1KRR 451lbs wet
2008 CBR1KRR 439lbs wet


2012 GSXR 1k 448lbs wet

2012 ZX10 437lbs wet

Just sayin'

Here's a pic of my pig



BTW I too am considering an LSL kit and better seat for distance touring if I don't sell it that is.

I get the same mileage out of anything I put on there, 3000 out of a rear, 5000 out of a front. Whether it was my CBR1000 all the way through the KTM 950SM. Doesn't matter which bike. Same mileage. Didn't matter which tire. I just don't see how anyone gets 9000 miles out of a rear tire.

Of course you get the same mileage, those bikes all weigh <450lbs. Try getting that milage out of a Busa, C14 or got forbid a K1600 My point was in reference to using a literbike vs a heavy ST bike.

Well alright. I forget they were even close to that light.

As promised, pics of my luggage.

Triumph Urban Tank Bag (10-15L) + RKA Daytona Tail Bag (5-14L) for shorter trips.


Now I have the Kriega US40 (20L+10L+10L) and a Kriega R20 Backpack (20L) for longer trips. With another 10-15L from the Tank Bag, I can haul a LOT of crap securely.


She weighs a hair under 400lbs wet, 112 RWHP, averages 50+MPG, and is all-day comfortable with my Saddlemen track seat. My kind of SPORT-tourer.

50+ mpg US gallons? With stock gearing? No one else is reporting fuel efficiency this high. Over how many tanks and how many miles?

Yes, stock gearing. Yes, US gallons. I calculate the MPG on EVERY fill up. I write the mileage on the receipt and stuff it in a pocket and do my calculations when I return. No engine work, but retuned for the Akrapovic exhaust. I have just under 9000 miles and I have only noted sub 50MPG once and that was 46MPG with 1/2 the tank used at a track day. It was my first, so I didn't concentrate on speed as much as getting comfortable and learning the course.

Example: This weekend I went for a ~400 mile ride. I stopped for gas at 150.2 miles and topped it off with 2.68 gallons: 56.1 MPG. Next stop, my fuel light came on at exactly 200.0 miles, only took 3.61 gallons to fill the tank: 55.4 MPG. I use premium fuel (usually E10, because that is what is available) and I keep the bike between 6-8,000 RPM with a few short runs from 10-14,000 RPM.

It's obviously a result of waxing my helmet.

You must be babying the hell out of that bike, the farthest I have EVER seen on a tank before the light came on was 160(ish) miles, I start looking for gas at like 120-130 usually.

....I've driven mine down to 99 miles with the light on, it takes 40 minute sessions on a track that rarely move below the century mark to do it.

real sexy bike, I can't imagine sport touring on that thing though. A 20 min test ride had me begging for mercy. As for the gas mileage, you are getting insane numbers.

Thanks. It's great bike for just puttering around due to the nature of the engine. It isn't ideal for long hauls, but once my knees adjusted to the sharp angles, riding all day is no problem at all. I'd love an ADV bike for the riding position, but the Daytona is paid off and runs well. Hard to beat that combination.

As for the gas mileage: perhaps it is because the triple produces so much torque so early that it is as easy to ride at 8k as it is as 12k? I'm no Ricky Racer, but I don't sit around either. Maybe I'm just lucky. My Ducat SF848 gets 48+ and my Honda Fit gets 40+. Even my Bonneville was no stranger to 60+MPG.

Once a bike is paid for, it's hard to justify going back into debt, just to change riding positions. Ride the bike that you have and make it work!

You are both lucky and ride/drive all of your vehicles gently. As I said before, no one is reporting mpg as high as you do on your Daytona, and that's stock. Adding an exhaust with tuning usually drops the average mpg by 3-5 mpg. I call that VERY lucky on both the individual bike and the tuning map that you have installed.
