      Hi.
      I am using suzuki gixxer std from last 1 year. I have done 20000 kms till date. The max average is just 38 to 40. The service center guys tell me that 150cc bikes get only this much average. Are there any means to increase the average. My max riding time is in moving traffic at 40-45 kph and go 50 km per day.

        Mandar_Satvilkar The fuel efficiency you are getting is not very low but not great either. How are you measuring the average? Is it the tankfull to tankfull method? As you ride in moving traffic, at speeds of 45-50kmph, its possible that you may be riding in a low gear which is leading to your engine to reach a higher rpm and resulting to lower fuel efficiency. Try to keep the vehicle in a higher gear preferably 5th or 4th and see if it brings any difference in the fuel efficiency. If you are already riding on higher gears, you can try changing your air filter. A clogged air filter can also lead to lower fuel efficiency. That said, fuel efficiency loss can be due to a lot of factors and these are just two I pointed out as they can be checked easily.
        I know a lot about cars, man. I can look at any car's headlights and tell you exactly which way it's coming.

          Mandar_Satvilkar Yes, Arjun is right. Make sure you periodically maintain your bike. Since your motorcycle has done 20,000 km, you may have to take extra care of your bike as not all the stock parts in the bike may be in good condition. You may have to clean/ change your air filter a little more than normal because your primary usage is only within city limits.

            Hi friends, glad to join this forum. I have bought a new bike, Pulsar 150cc, about 20 days ago. There is a noise coming from the engine when I cross 50 kmph onwards. I didn't ride the bike above 50kmph speed. What may be the issues? Let me know. And can anybody give a solution also to increase mileage?

              Hi Karthick, Welcome to the ZigWheels Forum. And congrats on your new bike. Can you describe what kind of sound you are hearing from the engine? Is it a knocking sound? The engine will sound a bit rough for the first 1,000 km or so till the bike has fully run in. As for fuel efficiency, it will improve a bit once the bike has run in, once all the parts wear a bit.

                  Siddhant KTM uses a single cylinder engine which doesn't have a counterbalancer shaft (2017 390 Duke is equipped with it, though). So, it is normal for the engine to give out vibrations. Do check if the body panels are all screwed tight. Sometimes the fairing tends to rattle. Also, check if the rear view mirror is fitted tightly. Hope this helps.

                      Sunny_Rathod As your running is quite low, and you would be spending quite some time, warming up the engine and starting daily, you maybe getting very low fuel efficiency. It should be better in longer rides.
