Most motorcycle problems are caused by the nut that connects the handlebars to the saddle.

Just interested to see what other peeps get out of their bikes. My old 2002 cb500 used to do around 50mpg with average riding. My new cb500f I get around 74 to 85 mpg depending how I ride it.

I have no idea - but, I can tell you this; I put between ten and twelve quid in the tank whenever I get close to 120 miles on the trip.

Add one or two quid possibly more for my zx9r and cbr600f

Last I made a note of it my CB500f did 273 miles out of 14.3 litres. My 2004 FZS1000 does around 160 miles out of 16 litres. My KTM 990 Superduke does around 120 miles out of 16 litres..

I use my CB most of the time.

The de-turned cb500f engines do seem to do good mileage compared to the pre 2010 ones.
Then I suppose it is how you ride them.
