Fuel consumption???
I have a gl1200 interstate trike with fuel consumption of between 20 amd 22 mpg maximum, here's what i've done so far.
Carbs are well balanced, plugs are clean as is the air filter, new oil filter and oil, tick over rev's at 900, clean exhaust, a little smokey when started up but it is a 22 year old engine.
I've used a Reliant Regal axle with 15 inch wheels and tyres with an outside diameter of 26 inch so I'm near to the original tyre size of the wing.
It drives well, not sluggish in high gears and with good all round acceleration, doesn't burn oil or over heat but what else could it be, I had a gl1100 wing trike before this one that didn't run any where near as well, but gave me 35mpg if not sometimes better.
Help required as I'm running out of money to buy fuel.
