I am just wondering if changing from the stock air filter to a K&N has reduced my gas mileage. It might be my imagination or even the price of gas lately but I always seem to be filling up lately.
I guess I will really have to log it exactly but I am thinking of trying the stock filter again. I have 30k on it now and have really done nothing except change the oil, adjust the chain and lube of course. Got a set of plugs took one out but they still look good.

Fuel injected bike, shouldn't be affected by the K&N. Winter/Summer gas can make some change due to the oxygenators.
Seems since I got mine that riding it a lot has caused an increase in the mileage. Maybe it's more happy being used.
