I only have 200 miles on my ST and have been getting low 20's, thats 70% city and back roads and not keeping my rpm's super low either. It's so tempting to get on it all the time.

When the older design has a 14.5 gal tank. I'd be happy to haul at least a couple gallons around.

I'd be adding a sri or cai. I'm sure Steeda, Fwerk's & CFM have or are working on intake systems for the ST's.
