The triples get much better gas mileage. The group I ride with has a 99 500 phazer-01 V-max 600-2000 500 kitty-02 550 kitty. My 700 beats the snot out of all of them by a big margine. Except the 550 kitty. We are very close. Not at first though, he had all kinds of problems with it the first year. That thing ate the gas and oil until he took it back for a good going over. I had a 97 500 xtc and that only got 11 mpg. MM.

Right now? I'm only getting 5.25 MPG on my '92 VMax-4. It needs to be adjusted and the clutches cleaned.

My father-in-law's sled ('88 Exciter 570) was getting about 5 two weeks ago....but we think that was due to a bad coil.

** Update ** as of last weekend, the '88 Exciter was getting 7.6 MPG.

I am able to go about 100 miles on a tank, with my 700 mm

I get 7 miles to the gallon with my rmk 700,i leaned it out a bit and reset the air screw. I get 100 miles or more to the tank. plenty of power, but i dont have it too lean as to not ruin the engine

i must say, i think those yamaha triples make gas! lol. its just from they're small carbs, their carbs are excellent for low end and mid range but at top end a bigger carb dominates. i never really have figured out the milage on my sled yet, but if you drive it decent it does pretty good, but damn, i love that throttle.
