25 MPG?!?!? WTH? '13 VStar 950
I'm experiencing some very troubling MPG stats. I have gone through two tanks now and my gas light is coming on between 55-60 miles! I have a '13 VStar 950. I installed some Cobra slashdown exhausts, the Kuryakyn Alley Cat air cleaner kit and a Cobra Fi2000 fuel tuner.
I'm not sure what the three pots are set at exactly at the moment, but I would guess with the aftermarket mods and maybe the pots not finely tuned, I am wasting hella gas? It's brand new (only 400 miles), don't see any leaks or smell gas. I have no backfiring or popping out of the pipes, so that's good.
I know there should probably be a drop in MPG after new exhaust but really?!?! Also, the spec sheets, etc. seem to say I have a 4 gallon gas tank and should get well over 200 mi before I have to fill up with gas, (which I was super excited about when I bought it!). But everytime I fill up, no more than 2.2 gallons goes in. Oh well.
Any advice for adjusting my pots?
I'm not interested in off-the-starting-line power, I'm more interested in no backfiring and better MPG. To be honest, the only reason I switched out the pipes is the stock was HIDEOUS (IMO- no offense to other 950ers).
Thanks and Merry Christmas!
