    S83 / C50 Mileage

    Good day all,

    For those who have a Suzuki S83 or C50, I am looking for the approximate MPG / MPL for these two models. If in MPG please state the reference Gallon.

    Thank you,

    Denis

    I typically get 43 MPG on my '05 S83. Strange, but I can count on having to switch to reserve at 129 miles almost every time. Very little of my riding would be considered "city".

    On my C50 the light comes on at 150 to 158 miles...50 to 53 MPG. Depends on how I ride it.

    I currently have an S40 and looking at upgrading. It's interesting to see that the mileage you are getting with these bigger engines are very comparable to the S40.

    Many thanks for your input...

    Stock it was the same for me 50-53 depending on how I drove it...Just finished installing K&N filter, cobra fi2000r, and v&h straightshots...Trying to dial in the processor and then will see what the mileage works out as...

    If I push it hard (hit the interstate, wind it up to 75-80Mph, don't look back for 100 miles), it drops to 46-48.

    S83 mileage

    I bought my S83 in July, and after having the carbs adjusted (it was running too lean), I have been getting between 45 and 50 mpg. Most of my riding is between home and work. 12 miles highway and 5 miles city. I was getting about 30 mpg before the carbs were adjusted.http://www.motorcycle-journal.com/fo...icon_smile.gif

    I bought an 2008 C50T in September. I typically top-off the tank at 125 miles. It's been averaging 54 mpg in mixed but mostly country highway riding. Last tank came in just under 60 mpg, probably a fluke or coincidence of conditions.

    I bought a used 2006 c50 a few weeks ago from a private owner. Told him that I have been averaging 30 -32 mpg and he said thats about right. I don't think so, it is only an 800cc, and my old bike was a vulkan 500 cc and I was averaging 48-50mpg.

    Is he full of it? I have a Chrysler 300 automobile(big car) with a 6 cylinder engine and am getting 25mpg.

    Please let me know the average for this c50 boulevard, and what I should tell him.

    Thanks,

    George

    Something is wrong there, unless you're not using anything above 3rd gear, or putting E85 in the tank by mistake. Even guys who replace the air filer and put straight pipes on usually don't go below 44mpg or so. I'd have a dealer test the FI system.

    Thanks for your help Bud.

    I sent this as a private message and only got one reply. Should I send messagages in a different way. This is all new to me.
