Default zzr600 1/4 mile time, 0-60 time, HP, etc (this is a list, not a request)

since I know one of the first things I look at when I am looking at a new bike, or in this case owning a new bike, is the horsepower, 0-60, 1/4 mile time, and fuel economy, I figured I would post just that here, plus some other stuff. In an effort to avoid people asking it later (like I was eventually going to do).

So, here goes:
2006 Kawasaki ZZR600
Wet weight: 431 lbs
HP: 89.7
Torque:42.7lb/ft
1/4 mile: 11.19 sec
0-60mph: 3.42 sec
60-0mph: 119.4 ft
Avg MPG: 36.1 mpg

All from http://www.mcnews.com/mcn/model_eval/MCNdec05600s3.pdf

I've never had better milage than 38mpg. I ride pretty rough too and usually get about 34-35 or so. sometimes 32mpg. I can't imagine these bikes getting 45-48mpg unless is pure interstate or something, even then... How do you measure the gas milage?

I usually ride down to the snake river, a bunch of twisties and i get going pretty good. I have never got below 40mpg. I measure the mileage from when i top off the tank, then i divide the mileage by how many gallons i put back into it. Its not very hard. So say 170 miles divided by 3.5 gallons = 48.5 mpg.

I think the HP and MPG are low. I think they put about 95-98 HP to the wheel and as far as mileage, I consistenly get 40-44 MPG and I ride pretty hard. I ran out of gas last night at 189 miles and it took 3.8 gallons to top it off so that is like in the mid to high 40s.

I am getting 48-50 mpg with my 2006. I will admit that I do not ride hard. I have almost 2000 miles on the bike.

what the hell am I doing different? Ok, let's try to eliminate some things. I use normally 93 octane, higher if it's there, but always premium. The idle is about 1200-1500rpm. I weigh 150 pounds and generally crouch down, so it's not air resistance. I switch gears usually in the 5k-8k range, but often in the 9-11k range. But normal riding, 5-8k. I top it off when on the sidestand and don't let the gas into the neck, and usually refill whenever it starts sputtering and I switch to reserve, when there's a station around. I live in florida which means I have no hills to go down and not use the throttle on. When I start it in the morning I let it idle for about 30sec to a minute and ride on a normal-weather day (not cold, no choke). Occaisionally when it's hot after I've been riding and the bike sits for 30mins or an hour or so I'll have to throttle a little bit to start her up and it smells a little rich (took to Kawi dealer today in fact, they said that it is most likely normal. They even called Kawi's dealer mechanical support regarding it, they said not to worry about it that it's probably fuel vapors in the carb or something). But I don't throttle much, and anyways carbs wouldn't pump more fuel in with a throttle twist.
I measure mpg from how much it takes to fill fuel to the level I try to always fill it to, and divide the odometer reading by the gallons (miles/gallons, obviously). So what could I possibly be doing so that my best mpg ever is less than the averages you guys are seeing?
The dealer, take it as you will, says this bike should get in the mid 30's.

So what is different between our two bikes?

I'm going to put my 06 ZZR600 on the Dyno and see what kind of horse power I'm really getting with the Yoshimura pipe and the K&N air filter. I will post the results when I get them.
