    I've been running this combo for almost two years now, and get around 40-45 mpg..It all depends on how enthusiastic I am with the throttle, or if I'm out on a road trip at steady speeds...I've seen where guys report to be getting upwards of 50 mpg with a 1300, but I've never been able to get even close to that...I think the lowest I've gotten was 36 mpg right after I got the bike with 2 miles on the odometer....It got progressively better as the bike got more miles on it...

    I get 32 to 34, get about 38 with a tailwind. I suppose I should mention that I got a whole bunch of 'ain't stock' on my bike, tho.

    The bikes I've modded for folks seem to hold the mileage they were getting before the mods. At least, that's the feedback I'm getting.

    The guy that did that "Layzerdude" is a member here and said that the last batch was his LAST batch...I guess he was having problems with the waterjet shattering the covers...Doesn't take long to get expensive when the covers keep breaking up...I got one of the first ones he did, and it gets comments everywhere I go...
