    I posted an updated video of the IXIL exhaust I cut in half and modified. It performed poorly from the factory due to restrictive defects in the head pipe and needed help.



    Man, does the air cooled Grom engine LOVE hot weather!

    I broke the 150 mpg mark for the first time. It still needs at least two or three back to back fill ups for a reliable average to confirm it, so I'll know for sure in about a week.

    I'll be installing clip on bars using these fork extension tubes.



    It'll be similar to my DRZ clip ons.

    Getting close...

    The gas mileage for last three fill ups averaged 148.9 mpg.
    This pushes the effective full tank range well over 200 miles. Summer heat really boosts efficiency in an air cooled engine. Cold weather gas mileage averaged 136 mpg so high ambient temps make a fair amount of difference. Warmer gas may also expand and go farther when metered through the injector. Just a wild guess. More likely is higher combustion temps get more power out of the fuel. I've also been modifying my riding technique with short shifting to get into 4th sooner and staying there without lugging the engine, which on flat ground is 26 mph @ 3,500 rpm.

    Low rpm torque is the key to getting good gas mileage.
