84 XT600 poor fuel mileage. (now with pictures) 56k=death
this one is new to me.
my 84 XT seems to suck down about a gallon of gas in 20 miles, gentle riding, no hard on the throttle runs or anything, just gentle acceleration.
I know the carb is clean, pretty sure float height is right, only thing I saw is it looks like the secondary carb has had some sort of mod where someone attempted to enlarge the hole a little, and its all kinds of a mess. now I dont THINK this could cause the issue, but I've been surprised before. when I can I'll take a picture of the inside for anyone ineterested.
I'm just looking to know if this fuel mileage is normal or not though. sure doesnt seem it should be.
