Minimum 91 octane with no corn in it.... Who cares what kind of mileage you get? The harder you ride it the worse it gets.... I hope I get the worst mileage ever. 😎

I'm loving it! I've had just over 2 weeks and it rolled over 1000 miles yesterday!

Gas mileage does matter if you're getting terrible mileage that's a sign of a bad tune, bad TPS or something else.

Is the bike factory original or modified?

If it's not broke, make it better
