Man that FJ-09 sounds niiiiice! :O But 38 mpg out of a 847!? I get 38-44 on my 1255 and that is in the current "stock" stage! Maybe they have a banana stuck in the muffler or "fun" mode on most of the time!? ;)

The 2014 fuel map was awful.  Yamaha says they have gotten that number to 44.  Still depends on how you ride it.

True for any bike.  I get between 42 to 50 on the FJR (1299cc).

I've gotten up to 50 in the mountains down south how idk. I think it may have to do with the cleaner more "freedom" air and gas! ;)

Yeah, take away the ethanol and I can get better than 70 mpg.  Yet somehow it is good for us.
