Did a mileage run today

After correcting my carb problems, I changed my oil with 10W40 Synthetic, (2nd time with Synthetic) ran some seafoam in it 1st and everything looked fine when I pulled the screen out. Filled up and ran about about 150 miles before having to hit reserve, then switched it over and headed for a a gas station. Took 3.1 gallons to fill it and I was at 160.5 miles which comes to 51.78 miles per gallon. That's the BEST gas mileage I ever had, previously I couldn't seem to get more than about 44 mpg. Got my new plug wires on tonight too, next project will probably be my spline lube.
Now I just need to get together with my buddy on his Virago 750 and see if I match up a little better. Last time out he was getting the best of me.

Good, I have seen a big range in MPG depending on how I am riding.
When I put on a small shield I got in the 50's all the time.
