Should also add 87 octane (r+m/2), throttle pegged. I might try 92 (r+m/2) and see what happens, both speed and mpg.
Good point. I used 92 octane, which may or may not change things. What about tire pressure? The manual says 18/20psi for f/r. That seems low. What are other riders setting the psi at?Also, isn't the G5 gearing differently than the C5?
I talked to a Shell distributor today who said all brands and grades of gas-except marinas-in Washington State are mandated to have <10%ethanol content, so non-ethanol gas is not an option.
