You should expect 50-60mpg cruising at 1/3 throttle. It depends on how much you turn up the wick. If you wring its neck, consumption goes up, as might be expected, to a little better than 40mpg. My T-Max toured Europe for 2500 miles with over 22 stone on board and those are figures that I got.
I´m at 15,000 miles on the first V-belt and it doesn´t slip or whine...Anyone else got the belt past - say - 17K? Did it go pop or what? Cracking piece of kit though and really comfortable for touring . Enjoy yours, P.N.
