Poor MPG

I recently bought a '05 RG with a stage one kit, and VH pro pipe (two into one), I am getting 30 MPG with this bike (combination hiway, city) is this normal? This is my first RG and fuel injected bike. Always had older iron before this.

That mileage seems a little low; I get about 47 mpg on the highway. My 05 is stock except stage one air cleaner and Screamin' Eagle slip on mufflers.

Sounds like it needs a tuner to get it dialed in..

I really wish that I was getting 47 highway. I've got a 107 with about 850 miles on it and while she is slowly getting better, she is very thirsty.

The first full tank lasted about 65 miles. Since then I'm up to about 32 MPG. But again it's a new 107 and I've only got under 900 miles.

I've got an 05 w/56k on the clock. Have never gotten under 40mpg in the city and average about 46 on the highway. You got tuning problems or an extremely heavy hand.
