yeah when i first bought mine i was getting 120 before the light. now its like 85. but i also run the piss outta it and with the mods im sure killed it too. i cant remember exactly what took the biggest chunk out of my mileage...the PCV or the reflash disabling the o2. I know its run rich as hell since the PCV was running a base DJ map. but now i smell like exhaust..not fuel after a ride

Mine went to hell after the reflash! But it ran half again better also! so a good trade off from that side. Do you wear ear plugs when you ride? Some times I do and sometimes I don't, but it makes my ears ring pretty bad if I don't.

no ear plugs for me back n forth to work or just riding around. but if i go on a long ride i tend to wear some earbuds and stream music.

Mine seems to be as much wind noise as exhaust. the vents on my Arai helmet when open make a lot of wind noise inside.

turn your head slightly. your probably holding your head slightly to one side so instead of the wind going over the helmet like it was designed to its probably hitting wierd right on one of your vents. if i turn my head an inch 1 way the wind hits a vent and it whistles.
