My fellow warrior owner....

I saw in someone's sig there is another warrior owner around here.... Cannot find who it is now....

Please ring in.

What year do you have?

What after markets?

Just wanting to see what kind of gas mileage you are getting.... I get different answers, but everyone I ask are all getting more than me. Just wondering if it's all me on the throttle or if I might have something wrong with my bike.

Thanks in advance.

Sorry I do not have a Warrier but I do have a Roadliner with the Strat package on it as well as my own big air kit, Roadhouse full 2 into 1 exhaust, and power commander. As for gas mileage I am getting about 40 if I am riding alone and usually 35 or 36 when riding with a group if I remember right. I do not really check it very ofter though so I am not sure just how accurate that is.

Thats a pretty imprerssive list of mods to the bike. I bet it does run lots different than it did before you started.

Warriors really are great bikes. The thing I really liked about the one I owned was the engineering that went into it ... aluminum frame, HIGH-torque engine (100 lb-ft stock), obvious cruiser style but it still has an inverted fork, great brakes, sportbike tires, ... Faster cruisers? Sure, the M109 is faster, but it's all plastic and water cooled to boot. The simplicity of the Warrior was the biggest reason I bought it.

Wish I still had it.

lovely machine u had there....that was the stock paint job i really liked outta all of the choices....if i had that paint job, i would have never got a custom paint job, that was my favorite.

and yes kman458, nice roadliner pkg.... man i really love the engine yammi gave that bike. powerful and i like how the cooling fins all come together on that engine.....my warrior does ride differently than when i first got it.....lets just say i can effortlessly spin the rear tire when doin bout 70 on the highway, used to not b able to do that.
and to those twisty riders on sporties, u would b surprised on how the warrior can handle the twisties...i really luv this bike....

rswarrior fourm.... wow, haven't been there in a long time. I need to swing back there and say hi.

Sounds like you been busy on your bike..... I am looking to to add the forward controls on it, get a little extra length for these long ass legs I have..... Other than that, I would like to find a bigger tank, this 30 mpg is for shit with a 4 gallon...... Out in the desert.... you can have more than 120 miles between gas stations.... (in remote regions of course.... LoL).

Thanks for ringing in.... i have been pretty busy this last month getting caught up on holiday bills.... gonna try to get back here more.
