XT250 Fuel Economy?

I just bought a 2009 XT250 and I have put about 300 miles onit. I am getting 60-65 mpg. Is that about right. I could have sworn others were getting 80+.

Thanks in advance.

Zeb,

I had an '06 XT225 and consistently got right around 70 mpg. Your mileage might improve with break-in. For pure street riding, you might up the pressure in the tires just a tad. Enjoy yourself, that's a neat bike. Have you seen www.xt225.com? Lots of good stuff there.

I have been riding kinda "wide-open" everywhere and those were the numbers. Just easing around she is up to 70 +.

Thanks for the link!

I recently bought the same bike ('09 XT250), I have just over 800 miles on it and the mileage is getting better. Last time I filled up, I got 74mpg (~90% highway at 60mph).

I expect it to get better when the engine breaks in a little more.
