I get more then 100 to empty more like 120 or 130. It's only when I drive to fast on the freeway that the numbers start to go down. I got the air box mod and a big old white brothers full system. If anybody knows how to get more miles I would like to know. How many tanks to the oil change?! ;)

I have 2 Renazco's (XR650R & KTM 950), as well as a Seat Concepts on a DRZ. They are all fine seats, and for the wait time I would go Seat Concepts. A local custom I once had done was worlds better than any of the above. Alaska Leathers sheep skin does wonders for any seat except perhaps true custom, and seems to work wonders on a few stockers as well. I have ridden other people's bikes with Corbins and it isn't for me, plus they are heavy and generally expensive. S.C. seems much more comfortable at a better price given a choice between the 2.

Rumor has it the TM40 is a easy way to jump 8-12 mpg. I installed one, but I have not run any tests to see what i'm getting mpg wise.

During my TAT trip, I plan on changing the oil twice along the trip. one of those oil changes will be oil only, filter will remain intact

I was just being cheeky, I change mine every 1300miles. Filter ever other, works fine.

I have a Renzaco on one of my XRR's. It's a great seat and certainly way better than stock. I rode around Central America on it for a couple months. It did come with the bike when I bought it a few years ago.

I also have a SDG/ Moose seat for my other XRR. And surprisingly enough I find it just as comfortable as the Renzaco seat.

As a new member on here I have a bunch of questions for youall, and here comes the first....

I have cut my seat, glued and shaved softer foam, added sheep skin, and my ass still gets super sore after 3 hours. It is simply not wide enough in the back for cruising. curious if any body on here has experience with either a renazco racing seat or corbin or anything else. I am leaning toward the corbin due to the fact I can simply order one and have it here in 2 weeks. A part of me wants to keep the stock seat they way I have it set up because on twistys or mixed offroad conditions its fine, but for those long huals btw states or moods its a real B*tch.

Also debating putting the 7 gal IMS tank I have to match the cruiser seat and dirt bags I ordered. Current tank is 4 gal IMS which if I keep it under 70mph gets me a little over 100 miles.

Thanks
Matt
That mileage sucks, 43-50mpg is pretty normal when dual sporting the xrr. Sea level is closer to 43 and at alt it'll get closer to 50. Check out the seat concepts cover & foam. I put one on my 525 and just did a 500 mi ride, its wider toward the back and fairly comfortable.

I have a Renazco on my XRR and love it. I also have another bike with a Seat Concepts and it is great too, especially for the price. I hate Corbins, they weigh more than 2 stock seats!

I think I would have opt'd for the suede seat cover if it was offered when I bought mine. I always heard its not practical, but Fawk practical =)

i wanted to get a Rez' seat, way backed up so I went with Rick mayer, build to order, he wants input and pics of you on the bike, had built slightly wider in ass area, flat deck, really well made, well worth the $, shipped on time. 300 mi FS road days no problem. i have a re' seat on my DRZ I really like it.

Goina do the seat concepts due to timing and good reviews. My bike runs really freaking good, has about 8kmi on it and the valves are adjusted? The intake was alittle loose towards the end of my last ride, could that be my gas mileage issue? Curious about how to get 45-50 mpg, that sounds great!!!

I'm a little new to the 650r, my mileage seems to be about 39 mpg so far running 60 to 65

I ran a multiday 5000 mile ride on an xr4 last fall with a stock seat and I was comfortable and I just walked in from 155 miler on the 650r and it felt great as well.

Years ago I bicycle toured enough to know how important wearing the right unders are, I use and really like the troy lee 7705's. During my xr4 ride last fall I had a couple of days that were over 105 and I tried riding without them and within 50 miles I knew if I continued without them I would pay big time in the coming days, somewhat like bad blisters on a multiday walk.

They are also armored, not a lot of armor but way more than none. Now and again I get the tt540 out and ride ovals and have been off a couple of times pretty hard and I think the hip/thigh protection they offer has been useful.

Looking forward to using the seat concepts seat. Feels pretty good so far.
