    On a stock bike, mileage will still vary because of dozens of factors. Wind, tire pressure, uphill/downhill, average speed, solo or with a passenger, and most importantly - activity level of the right wrist!

    Yours seems a tad low but if you're enjoying yourself, who cares.

    I've never met one single person who stated the main reason he bought a Harley was for the great gas mileage!

    My 09 FLHR

    103" with heads street port on intake only, stock valves then: Blueprinted by Don Dorfman... cams SE255's, V&H slip-ons, SE air
    AND a SE Pro tuner...

    45 miles per gallon on the road Two up OR single... 80 mph+ cruise on I-10 45 to 48 miles per gallon... Never falls short of that and I do Twist the Wick often:D

    Feel sorry for the ones that don't get good mileage:bigsmiley15:

    After a good built COMBINATION 103", it is not Magic ,,,,IT IS All in the TUNE...

    I ride my 08 FLHT with Stage1 AC and V&H pipes only and get about 36mpg on the hiway. I ride 90% hiway miles so I'm not to sure about city mileage. I generally ride pretty conservatively in the 2700-3000rpm range.

    Me either. I average 36-37 every tank. I am pretty heavy with the right wrist though. As long as she's running fine, thats all that matters to me. I'd like to get 40, but it is what it is.

    Some times getting Less Mileage per gallon may mean it is NOT as Lean as EPA wants it to be... Shushhhhh I won't tell:13:

    Maybe, Consider less MPG a good thing...:D
