92 k75rt fuel consumption woes ...
My K75 has 120,000 miles on it and I've noticed that my fuel consumption has deteriorated quite dramatically. I used to get 220 miles per tank (50 MPG) but this has dwindled to a miserable 160 miles (35 MPG). I'm aware that the use of ethanol in the gas has an adverse affect on MPG but surely not this much?
I've installed a new air filter and spark plugs but this hasn't made any obvious improvement so would be thrilled at any helpful suggestions. I recall reading somewhere of a faulty sensor that can cause excess fuel to be injected into one of the cylinders but am unable to locate said article.
I average 15,000 miles a year and so any improvement will save me a decent amount of money.
Back to the drawing board....
Well I gave the bike a good run this past weekend- 1000 miles round trip for the "Sun your buns" rally. Sadly the gas return remains the same at around 35 MPG, so while cleaning the injectors was probably necessary it hasn't solved my problem.
Any suggestions welcome,
