    Question Burgman 400, 2011 Top speed.

    Can't get over 80 mph and past red line. Was getting 54 to 56 mpg now only around 50 mpg. I believe it is not going into a higher gear. What could cause this?

    How many miles on a 2011 Burgman 400

    I can get 95 on my 03 400 and about 78 miles to a gallon if I run the speed limit.That bike doesn't have any gearing on it.It has a belt that pulls the back wheels.If you are trying to go faster you are killing your gas mileage . You can change the rollers inside your pulley might go faster off the line or slower according to the weight.Also you live in Florida heat has a big factor on gas mileage.I have bought gas at a station and get great mileage and the next my mileage was was bad.If you think your 400 should do 100 or more miles per hour you are wrong .Be happy with it the bike is very nimble and a joy to ride.

    If either your variator weights or your belt are worn it can cause your engine to run faster than it should relative to your road speed. You should measure your belt width and inspect your variator weights.

    RPM's

    Before I switched to Dr. Pulley Sliders, I found at 75 MPH my RPM's were about 7,500. With the Sliders,, the RPM's dropped 1200 to 1500 RPM's less. So at 75 MPH, my engine is at approx. 6200 RPM. I got mine to 95 MPH, but that was way too fast for me and won't do it again! Scared the gihiby's out of me.

    26,000 miles. The only reason I was asking is it was advertised 113 top speed. 80 is too fast.

    First off - I don't have a 400 so this comment may be irrelevant. My 650 has a sixth gear that it never shifts into when I am driving in 'Automatic"
    Once on the highway I have to switch to manual and shift it up into the top gear. I do this in order to improve my gas mileage. As far as top speed, I don't know - I've hit 88 (80 MPH real speed) on the speedometer but that wasn't the top speed. It was all I wanted.

    I have a 2007 400 don't know what rollers are fitted but revs are 6000 at 70mph 7000 at 80mph 8000 at 90mph should do 100mph as lots of power and enough revs left at 90mph. Get about 75 mpg cruising at 70mph. Do 75 miles per day 5 days a week commuting to work and back.
