yep........"any one know diablos phone number" is the next question.

you need 17 litres to not get really hacked off with a ts1, about 40 to the gallon is about normal. i would do 80 at a push on welded twin tanks.

Not getting much better MPG than that on my Rapido (250). 'Planned' as a touring set-up (well exhaust and gearing at least, if not the tune and the carb), the thirst is a fly in the ointment.

Think I'll swap the carb out and try a 28mm in place of the 34mm VHSB. I used to get decent MPG with a 28mm on my old iron 230, 1Litre every 10Km is just going to be a pain in the arse as well as well fecking expensive. I get tirsty too u know :frog:

Eg. Planned round trip to Gijon for the Euro would be £400 in juice alone + where can you stash enough 'decent' oil to make sure u don't run out of that? Feck me, you'd need one of those 'PAV' scooter trailers converted as a petrol bowser..... :alien:

I have been running a 24mm mikuni on my 225 rapido and on runs i would get 54mpg, now going RT255 and 28mm power jet keihin but with 18-46 and Li150 so high gearing should give me the same mpg,
cruising at 80mph should only be 4000rpm ;) :lol: ;)

Mazz (not sure if he is on here) was getting high 20's out of his rapido somebody tuned his barrel but all it did was create more blow back :cry:

Well that is broadly the combination in principle I managed better MPG than standard P2's with on a long international run:

Kwaki 230, 28mm Keihin, Clubman, Li150 18/47.

I did find it a bit over geared (flat in 4th), but it would purr along at 65/70MPH @ 1/4 throttle, up-hill and down dale, ...just a bit slow accelerating in 4th.

You would need to be making at least 18BHP @ 4000 to 'cruise at 80MPH' : perhaps a bit optomistic? I would say that on anyset-up like that the power jet is never going to come into play: better to blank-it and correct the main jet for less hassle ;)
