Any body with a zr580 efi i need help! My gas milage is horrible i drove abot 7 or 8 miles today and i used a guarter tank of gas. The one thing is that the bolt that pushes on the back of the motor to help align the clutches was gone, but a guy i know helped rig up a piece to get by on but it still sucks gas. So what is the normal mpg for this sled i knew it wasn't the greatest  but not this bad.

I'd check for leaks.  Had the same problem with a 580 Carb. Sled, ended up that the water catch lines that run out the bottom of the Float Bowl had a crack in it and was leaking gas out of it.

I was worried about the mileage on my sled, until I refilled the tank.  Had about 57 miles on my ZR800, and the needle was bouncing just above the "E".  Pulled into the pump, and it only took 6.5 gallons.  Turns out the tank has a very big "E" zone.  'Bout 9 mpg on a brand new sled;  should get better once broken in and jetted properly.
