Who installs pipes to save on fuel.

Face it, if you pipe and clutch your sled, you are not looking at increasing your milage.  In fact, because you probably have the throttle pinned almost all the time with your new pipes, your mpg is going to decrease.

Your milage is a direct refelection of the go-happy lever.


Just my two cents!!!

What changes have you noticed in MPG after installing pipes, specifically D&D pipes?  I put them on my ZR800 and the mileage seemed to go down.  I did not have the clutching done yet, so hopefully the mileage will be better this season since I've had it clutched this summer.  I know I will still use a little more gas since the engagement is now about 4800 RPM.
What do you guys think?

NEWF, I didn't buy them to "improve" my mileage, but just like my cars and trucks, I do monitor fuel consumption for any drastic changes which could mean something is wrong w/motor or fuel delivery, etc.  Just wanted to know what you guys had noticed.
