I have a 2000 Indy Triumph, which is the same as a '99 Xlt motor but in the Gen II chassis(7 lbs. lighter). 38mm flatslide carbs jetted down to 340's and I rode 60 miles on a half tank of gas yesterday, however my tank is 11.8 gallons.I Was givin' her pretty good out of corners and hit 90mph a couple times on speedo on straights.
Yeah, I realized after my post that some will report different mileage due to terrain conditions. My application would be for groomed trail riding at elevations less than 2000' ASL. I did some "ditch banging" in deep soft snow last weekend and could only get about 65 miles. That was the first time my RES light has ever came on, scared the $%^& out of me, although after I checked and the RES light will come on when there is 2-1/2 gallons left. Made it home safely (easy does it..). I'm glad to see that my mileage is comparable to others. I thought that the triple would be more of a pig, but am pleasantly surprised at the mileage I get.
