Did you compensate for the now inaccurate odometer?

People like you are why I don't post much on forums anymore.

Don't bother to reply because he only made this post to be an ass.

I'm stoked for you man!

80MPG is awesome...I'm sure there are lots of doubters out there, thinking, no way! His math has to be wrong...even if it is and you're getting 60, that's awesome...

80 is not quite double what I typically get (mid to high 40s). I am surprised that changing the sprocket would change the mileage that much, but if that's what you're getting great, and if you want someone else to be excited for you, I can do that easy!

Sure you did not eat the sprocket, man? And measured your weight instead..

I am happy for you. You just have to believe me. You seem to have found something in life that only a few will encounter. Not trying to argue nor show any hostility. You should see my grin now: Not all of us have 44 teeth. In the mouth!

Aw come on Getsome, he's just having fun. This is what happens when you own a reliable bike that rarely if ever breaks. I also own a Triumph sportbike. Go over to that site, more than half the posts have to do with fixing the problems that arise. Everybody there is spending all their spare time fixing their bikes with no time at all to bust other peoples' balls.
We have it good here.

I have to agree, knock on wood! I have had zero problems, just doin mods to customize and makin the bike more comfortable. I ordered this bike site unseen. Sometimes you just get lucky!

Ok back to busting balls! LOL

I'm happy for you. I get PDG mileage on my Vs, but NOT QUITE 80 mpg (UNLESS I measure Imperial - then I get mid to high 70's per Imp. Gal.).

Enjoy!
