After a few hundred miles and a couple tanks of gas milage has
improved. Turns out there are 2 gallons left when it hits the red line
on the gas gauge. Keeping it under 65 really helps, even a few
excursions over 70 drops overall milage below 37, keeping it between
60 and 65 nets 40 mpg. There are improvements to be had however.
Throttle response is a little harsh off/on throttle, and when warm
smells rich. I'll have to take a day to clean the carburetors, but
meanwhile I have a tank to ride.
Still miss the racetrack though. Might show up for WMRRA's endurance
