I think I checked it once and was getting 42

even though your 500 is only 250cc smaller than the 750, it still has one fewer carburetor and cylinder, so a 30% drop in fuel economy would honestly be expected

Kawasaki wrung this engine out and made it a real performer for a 750cc, especially considering it's a V-twin that revs to 8500 rpm, so it doesn't really get the best fuel economy for a bike its size
