Vince/Hanes Exhaust
K/N Filter (This did a huge difference, went from 45 to 55MPG HWy)
37 teeth rear sprocket

The 37 tooth sprocket did not make a difference in MPG at all, but it made it much better driving in both city/HWy. You actually end up with a better performing bike. Sprocket Specialists baby!

Fuel Capacity: 3.4 gal - .6 Reserve - 4.0 Total.
Current Mileage: 45011 MILES!!

Best ever was 64 - I think it depends on how much gas you can get into the tank as it is a small tank and you can get air out of the tank but it takes a while!!
