Question Stage 1 MPG Loss...

I just had Stage 1 2:1 pipes installed and on my first tankful, have fallen to about 38 mpg from 42. (with 1200 total miles on bike) Is this about right, considering enrichment? The pipe interior is very blackened with soot at only 150 miles.

And no, I have not been horsing it. Thoughts? Thx

Roll on,

When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem looks like a nail.

Could it be a problem between the seat and throttle.
