Low MPG. .Try new O2 sensor?
Howdy all, I've got an 02 with 28k on the clock and I think my mpg's are going down on me. When I'm riding at reasonable speeds, the BC shows 35-36 mpg. I know I probably don't drive it as slow as I could but don't do WOT all the time either.
The bike runs fine. It did die on me recently when I let off the gas, at low speed, for the first time. Started right back up after that though. All maintenance is up to date, including the 24k.
Should I go ahead and buy the Bosch universal O2 sensor (or other sensor) and install to see if it improves my mpg? The last thing I want to do is bring it to a repair shop to have it looked at for a diagnostic.
Most of my riding is solo and at least half the time the wind wings are not extended.
