70 MPG REALLY?

I've never heard of an XR that got much better than 45-50 MPG The new fangled water cooled, fuel injected bikes don't even do 70 MPG...
There might be an error in your math

That would be 46.5 mpg not 70

7.5l = 2gal
150km = 93.2 mi

I use 4L fuel (the last one was 3.96L) to go 100KM on the slab in my XL600.....measured it a few times, servo to servo...

Anyway, this is the latest pic of my XR6, nearly done, just tyres and sprockets/chain to go now.

Might need to rebuild the carby, see how it goes first.....

Must have wronged the conversion, we do our consumption in l/100km :) ,
and I get 5l/100kms . My fault!

p.s. just figured the fault, used an imperial galon! :)

Well if I divide roughly 60 miles by 2.2 gallons that's like record setting crappy mileage.I'm not even tuned fat. Maybe i went further than 60 miles. I need a damn speedometer hahaha. Speedometer, bigass tank, then start on doing some badass lighting and convert the system.

Jonny, throw a bicycle speedo on there. Easily picked up for a few bucks from any sporting store, even stores like Walmart. They work alright so long as you put in the right tyre diameter, generally have odo, trip, speed functions as most basic models.

Cheers - boingk

If I keep the speeds below 60mph I get 52mpg. Once I start cruising at 70mph plus my milage drops to 45mpg. That's a 1997 xr600 with 15/45 gearing and xr's only 41mm flat slide.

cush drive..

I have searched to no avail. I have an 83 xl600r. I bought a 1998 xr600 roller and installed front forks ect and rear swingarm, disc brakes and wheel. I will be doing much road riding and would like to install a rear wheel with a cush drive. Does anyone know of what years xrl650 wheel axle spacers that may fit? Thanks.

Shawn

Clutch pack

My clutch is going & I'm planning on buying a clutch pack.

Any suggestions as to mfg?

And is there anything hinky about changing this?

I had an early-year DR650 a few years ago and it had the weirdest setup ever seen.

I'm hoping Honda was sensible - like everything else on this bike (that I've encountered so far!)
