Hello everyone,

I just bought my wife a 2006 Monster 620. Can anyone tell me how many miles they average on a tank of gas.
Also right now the engine idles aroung 600 rpm. Is this normal or should it be higher?

I've got an '06 S2R 800 with stock gearing and cored cans. My light comes on at about 120 miles. I never run it much past that. It usually takes a shade over 2 gallons to fill up at approx 120 miles so I'm confident I have about a gallon left at that point. I hear of lots of folks encountering horrible mpg stats with their bikes but mine routinely will pull 55-60 mpg if ridden easy around town, which I take advantage of. It pulls low 50's on the freeway if cruised about 65-70 mph. Raise it up to a constant 75-80, and the mpg's quickly dip into the low-mid 40's. Combined with the extra wind resistance, those engines apparently drink a substantial more amount of fuel higher in the revs. I commute on it as much as possible. I save major $$$ on fuel costs!
