I tried to dig up an old thread but it was either in a "crossroads" specific thread or archived, so this is here now.
I am noticing a big difference in my Judge fuel consumption lately. About 25% different.
Last year (my first year on a Vic) I kept track and was getting anywhere from 39mpg to 41mpg (more towards the 39 side) so right on par with what gents on the forum are reporting. I started noticing I wasn't getting that trip meter anywhere near what I was last year and did the math. Out of 5 or so tanks I averaged 31mpg, twice it went as low as 29.
I am getting close to an oil change. I ride with a shorty now where i was full faced for most of the year last year (that should make THAT much of a difference).
So what are the things I should be looking for? At this rate when I ride to the big rally labour day weekend I'll be needing gas more then my buddys sportster will. I googled the question and got a bunch of general info that kind of applies, but I thought I'd leave in the hands of the Victory vets. Any help?
I have changed nothing on the bike.
Long live the oval
