mickanics,
I'm jealous! It probably has a lot to do with the kind of riding done too. We are in steep country and high altitude most of the time here, it makes a big difference when you gain altitude. We ride up to 11,000 feet, never under 5000.

Treewacker, Altatude or deep powder must have alot to do with it. I get 15 to 17mpg riding with my family, 13mpg riding with the guys and 10mpg busting trail in two feet of snow on my cat 800 twin riding in Michigan. My milage seems pretty consistant with what others are getting under simalar conditions._________DREW

How does re-gearing to 24/40 affect a big sled's performance from stock? If you re-gear, do you also have to start tinkering with the clutching?
