I have a 2010 Harley that is completely tricked out. With every upgrade my mileage dropped. Engine pumps more air and more fuel something has to give somewhere.
Mine sure didn't my milage went up and the power increase was significant.

I'm running a S%S 124 with mods. Power Vision Vice power commander V. Vance and Hines full exhaust along with a few more goodies. Built it myself. Primary built to match. Final tune done by some good folks in Oklahoma. My gas mileage stock was about 45 miles per gallon. Now we are lucky to get 22 miles per gallon. For a Harley it ain't bad. By the way you a welder?

I rode Harley's 29 years but never did much more than the typical air cleaner and pipes.
22 mpg is pretty lousy but sometimes that's just how it is. Victorys respond well to performance add ons, 116" big bore stock heads and throttle body will result in 140/140. Not bad for nothing but jugs and pistons with my mods.

I took welding classes but don't do it for a living.

Makes sense to me. Flow more air/fuel, it seems mileage would go down.
