I'm not getting good gas mileage at all around 32 mpg but I'm an easy driver. I have slip on exhaust and drop in k&n. There is also a petrol smell at idle. Any help would be great!

I have an '07 with a few mods. I get anywhere from 32 to 42 mpg depending on how I flog it. You might be running a little rich and time for a PCIII or other fuel mapping computer. I ran my K&N with slip-ons for several months without a PCIII and was getting anywhere from 38 to 44 mpg before the airbox mod.

Got a 2010 Z1K. Have 1200 miles on it and getting 35 mpg. Kawasaki's site says it should be getting around 41. Not sure where the other 6 mpg went? And I drive slow and easy most of the time.
