fuel mileage
« on: February 20, 2015, 04:47:56 PM »
ok, I decided to try out my different rides last week and this week on a layed out 50 mile road which was 9 miles of paved ,all the rest was dirt/gravel/caliche.Elevation change from a low of 4800 to a high of 8100 feet.First out was the xr200r with a total of 50.8 miles indicated with a fuel consumption rate of 79.3 per gallon :o and total time of 2 hours.Second out was the ttr250 with a total mileage of 50.2  indicated with a consumption rate of 55.0 per gallon and total time of 1 hour 45 minutes. Third out was the klx400r with an indicated mileage of 50.0 miles and consumption rate of 55.0 per gallon and total time of 1 hour 40 minutes.
The least comfortable ride was the xr200 and most comfortable ttr250 :).Some of the things that make the ttr  better than the rest was probably the forks and flexx bars.Adding on the kx500 forks was the best thing I've ever done to the ttr. I don't know if anyone has ever had a bike with flexx bars , but u really need to try them out.Mine are 14 degree bend, and after using them on the ttr, it makes the other bikes seem very harsh and makes my wrist and fingers hurt.Too bad they are so expensive ::) or i would have them on all my bikes.

  I think you can live with that fuel mileage on all of those bikes. Like I said before, you are the right guy to put that XR200 engine in a CR125 roller! A light great handler then. The ancient chassis holds that bike back while the engines are nice running torquey little pullers. The cheap guys AJP PR4 as it were! Quickly slice off about 50 lbs where you need it gone.
