Does Upshifting Save Fuel For Better MPG On A Motorcycle?

by admin, July 4, 2016

I wanted some definitive data on if and if so, how much, upshifting on a motorcycle saves gas to increase the MPG.  I had always THOUGHT it was the case but never actually tested it.  Well, simple enough on a 2014 Yamaha FJR1300 with the constant fuel mileage on display and the cruise control set!  For 1st and 2nd I had to hold it steady manually, as the cruise control only engages in 3rd 4th or 5th.
