2004 Yamaha VStar 1100 Silverado with 25,000 miles gets terrible gas mileage but   Technical-Bikes

Problem solved and I'm feeling stupid and embarrassed. 

Here in Canada, I assume that odometers are measuring kilometres.  Bad assumption on my part.   The odo is measuring miles, so I'm getting about 40 miles to a U.S. gallon. 

I apologize for wasting your time.

Dude, thanks for the update. I was noodling away on what could cause a drastic cut in gas mileage without making the bike almost unrideable. Glad it's an easy "fix"

LOL.  Inexpensive, too.  All it cost me is some humiliation.  sunglasses

I would read thru the link I provided, especially the new owners section and still do the basics not knowing any history. Glad you figured it out and keep the rev's up!
