Default Avegage MPG?

Can anyone tell me what the average MPG is on a CCT? I got mine last month and they only thing that has been done is the stage 1. But I am only getting around 150 miles to a tank which averages out to around 30 MPG. That seems low to me. I have heard of some bikes getting better gas milage after a little bit of riding once the motor breaks in. Has anyone else experienced this, or is this something I will just have to get used to.

150 Miles per tank? I don't know how you can tell your milage with that information. To check your milage, fill the tank to the same level each time and when you fill it again divide the miles driven by the amount of gallons used. My XC is always between 40-45 mpg depending on speed and conditions (load, headwinds,ect).

Mileage swings. Botched stage 1? Having fun? Just needs to break in? Had it a month?
Strange questions? Not really. Most dealers have no idea what these bikes are made of, and only are able to "cookie cutter" adjust the fuel. You'll get better if things are as they should be. These engines take a long time to break in and IIRC my first few tanks were in the low 30MPG range with dismal get it when I twisted the throttle.
It should get better and to answer your question, 43-45 MPG.

bike being new you need a good thousand miles on it before even thinking about mileage.
Use your phone to determine what your getting what the bike is tell you is a guess

Airfrm, its not unusual for the 106 engine to require 3,000 miles plus to be completely broken in, so be patient with it. Be sure to do a good break in by contantly varying speed and an occasional quick rev into higher numbers.
I too got lower 30s at first, when the engine was tight. Now my highway mileage is 40 to 50 depending on terrain, speed, wind, etc..
You'll get there too.

What does your readout (on the dash) show? You can't go by the needle as it "crashes" after it gets below around 3/5ths left. Most of us are getting between 42 & 46 MPG depending on how you ride. Of course, if you've got a active right hand (lead foot), your not going to get 40+MPG. However, having said that I am fairly active and still see over 40 MPG in most runs (refill @ 200 miles and putting in just under 5 gallons)

I have a generally light throttle hand and 38-40 seems about the average for me. I have seen less far more often than more.

Yeah, 41-43 MPG routinely. Mix of city and highway, 60 miles a day. Low fuel light comes on around 175 miles and I've stretched a tank as far as 210, but usually fill around 190.

It is important to distinguish in this conversation whether the numbers are derived manually or from the on board computer. Most people are reporting computer numbers that are about 10% optimistic. My trip computer is.
