Effect of fairings upon mpg?
I just completed my first tank on my salvaged 2014 Glee, and the trip computer is reporting 37.6 mpg. My buddy's 2012 (with fairings and a big windscreen) does 53 when I ride it in the exact same manner- cruising on the freeway at ~80 mph. This seems like too big of a gap to be put to just a lack of fairings and windscreen, but I could be wrong. Does it sound normal to anyone else? I have a windscreen on order, but somehow I doubt a windscreen will net me 16 mpg...
The valves have just been adjusted and the air filter is brand new and stock, stock pipe as well.
