Big 3 Fuel Economy?

Seems like my hours per tank dropped noticeably. Any idea on a rough average percentage of change? Thx.

I noticed if I open it up it drinks a ridiculous amount of gas but slow trail riding she seems to have better fuel economy. This is with the barkers, ehs lid, and ehs programmer .

I was opening it up more than usual. First time I ran on res and it died almost instantly on a jump.

Near same setup.

Mine dropped too but that was to be expected. It's not to bad unless your really in the throttle hard. I noticed yesterday while running with a fully built ltr450 I used alot of fuel quick!

More power requires more fuel if your comparing properly tuned stock bike to properly tuned Big3 bike.

It compunds upon itself too, your bike sounds better and runs faster so you are on the gas more.

I am running a stock motor and exhaust and hitting reserve at slightly over 2 hours racing. I think I have a screwed up ECM. In 3 hours I used 17 litres or 4 1/4 gallons US.
