I figured my gas mileage was a bit low, but after measuring for a  
month or so it's pretty dead average 45mpg.  I swear I used to get  
52mpg on my 2002 before I turned it into a racebike.

This could all be in the throttle hand, obviously.  But 7mpg seems a  
bit much for just that.

Besides cleaning the air filter, anything else I should check?
