    22L/100km fuel consumption on the racetrack!!!

    Hi guys, few weeks ago we went to MotoGP in Brno Czech Republic and we had an opportunity to ride on the track. In the camp right before the ride I topped my fuel tank. For 3 laps on the track (one lap is 5km) and 5km of highway ride to the first gas station, my Vmax burned 4.5 L of fuel. That...

    Oil Consumption

    So, I've heard that the Max is a bit of an oil eater. That being the case, whats normal usage under what kinds of riding conditions? Obviously, the more time spent in vboost should net more oil usage, but whats acceptable and what could be an indicator to a larger problem?
