I getting the same with my 2001 ZR800Le, somewhere in the 140-150 mile range with a full tank. I put in 410 mains and V Force reeds. I Think the reason behind the great mileage is because the engine is revving so low at trail speeds (40-45 MPH)all the time somewhere around 6000 rpm. I never have to worry about looking for gas if Im riding with a group.
May peace be with you when my snow dust is in your face.
