cysu888 is an unknown quantity at this point

40 miles per gallon sounds great to me. For some reason, my sportster is only getting 24mpg. Not sure what is going on.

Its a 2009 883, I've driven it around for only 950 miles so I don't know if I've even hit the break in point. My typical trips are multiple short city rides of 1 or 2 miles and about 10-15 minutes long each.

I have a set of V&H slipon mufflers, SS airfilter, and fuel pak. But the horrible MPG was also an issue before I added all the other components.

Any thoughts if it is that i haven't hit the breakin point or something I should take back the to the dealer to look at.
