Fuel Efficiency vs Power: Is stock the best setup?
Just picked up a K6 SV1KS with 69 original miles on it!
Riding it this week, I've been averaging 42-45 mpg (US), which doesn't seem bad at all considering I'm 230 lbs and 6'4" tall wearing full gear and the bike's not even broken in yet.
My intention is to commute on the SV1K regularly, so I want to maintain excellent fuel efficiency, but I also want to maximize power and ride-ability around town and on the occasional weekend excursion into my local canyons.
Is it possible to squeeze more performance out of this package without sacrificing cruising mileage or is stock (mufflers, ecu, airbox/filter, etc) the best way to go?
