New to the snowtracks forum. This is my first message. I have a 03 polaris xc 600 & a 97 yamaha vmax 500. Ride mostly in up michigan. east, central & west side. Try to get out 4 trips of a season & generally put on 2000 miles a season. Have been reading this website for years & finally registered this week. Any ideas (other than a hand gernade) on how to get decent mileage out of the vmax? This thing is a pig on gas. Generally 8 mpg or less. At least this season it won't cost a small fortune in gas to run it. Wish I could replace it but as little riding I do, it's just not financally feasible.
