RE: Heated grips and mileage

RE: Heated grips and mileage 
Tony Higgins said 2002-04-14 23:49:52 
 
My city mileage is about the same early in break-in, maybe a bit
better; as this is a big 4-stroke twin, I would expect mileage
to improve over time, especially after the first 1000 miles or
so. My experience is that this engine type (torque-oriented,
relatively large displacement per cylinder) needs to wear in and
loosen up before it hits its best mileage. My expectation is
about a 10-15% improvement in the city; this would lead to
something on the order of 45 mpg (U.S. gallons). I would also
expect to see something like 48-55 mpg highway (+-60 mpg imperial)
after break-in.
Just remember -- 3.8 litres to a U.S. gallon, 4.5 litres to an
Imperial gallon, 1.25 U.S. gallons to an Imperial gallon, and just
don´t get into quarts, cups, etc.!
BTW, the prices quoted for the accessories are the same I got in
Edmonton, but the dealer cut off 20% when I ordered all of them.
I expect to see them on April 19th -- will let you know.
