Hello Kyle & welcome handshake.gif

There is not much you can do to reduce fuel consumption if you 're getting that kind of mpg.

The best thing that I could think of is getting your carb tuned properly, always use a clean air filter & oil filter. Check that you 're not running lean or rich as this is a big factor in obtaining the optimum mpg. Remember; using a larger jet(s) will not always be detrimental to mpg. If the bike is running lean, putting a bigger jet in will actually increase mpg because less fuel will evaporate from a hot, lean condition. If your jet(s) are too large you will be wasting fuel caused by un-burnt fuel particles escaping from the exhaust. Usually you would notice this from symptoms like spluttering, popping in the carb when throttle is let off, un-burnt fuel smell, black spark plug, flat spot(s) etc.. Also, if the carb is not tuned right then this will affect mpg because of a lack of power.

To put your fuel consumption into perspective; I am getting roughly 21 KM's out of 1 liter of fuel (from memory). I honestly do not think that you are using an excessive amount of fuel, but that's not to say it couldn't be a little better

Welcome to the site.

 

My fuel consumption is a lot worse than both of you, but then I'm on trails a lot, 1st or 2nd gear, therefore 16 km/ltr,

Welcome and hello Tong Kai.

You have nothing to worry about regarding fuel consumption. 100km on 4.2 litres is not poor.

To put that in m.p.g. terms (for the UK readers) it equates to 62.14 miles on 0.924 imperial gallons, making your consumption 67.3 miles per gallon. confuse

I use my TTR on normal fuel, on roads and trails, and I achieve an equivalent average of 72 statute miles per imperial gallon.

My right hand is probably not as strong as yours. biggrin
