    Ye so did I. I went out last weekend and was opening her out a fair bit. 44 miles and the one side was empty about to go onto reserve. I'm a bit sceptical that it will do 70-80 miles now. I've still got to check the jets and compare them to what been told. Just don't get time with the little one!

    Common issue by all accounts. I won't be changing it for a 18 fuel injection that's for sure!

    U need to see what your jetting is set at same as before. It's only a common problem until u sort it.

    +1 , My 300 was terrible on fuel when it was standard as we all know, but after correct jetting is was brilliant on fuel, Pete why don't you drop him a PM with the jet sizes for a 2017.

    I think it was me who mentioned the jet sizes ( 165, 38, clip 2, AS 1.50 - 1.75 ), but the 2017 uses a different carb, meaning different sizes which I don't know now I'm converted to 4T wheelie
