My fuel mileage went from 41-43 to 30-32. Has anyone else had this drastic of a change?

OMG, that's horrible. :evil: Years ago when we would modify British bikes the gas mileage always went up. :applause:

My Volusia is stock and on a trip I get 47 to 50mpg. :D

If you were getting 41 - 43 with a C50 from the get go... then you had a problem before you changed anything. C50's stock are getting better than 50mpg assuming you ride between 50-60 mph.

Even going 70 -75 mph I get 51. Something is wrong, you may have to take it to the dealer (although I hate to recommend that) and see what might be causing such low mileage.

I'm known here as being throttle-happy, so I didn't think much about it. I have a 550 Honda 4 that gets 20 mpg and a Virago 1100 that gets 30, so I thought I was getting good mileage, but a 25% decrease got my attention.
