Hi Chris, welcome to the forums.

You need to find out what has been done to the bike and what hasn't. There are a number of mods and improvements which can be applied, especially to the 04's. For example in the way of cooling there is a kit which puts the fans on the outside of the radiators to improve the effectiveness of them. Also the latest 07 mapping is a vast improvement in fueling but I don't know if it's ok on an O4. Anyway, have a good look around the TNT section of the forum and you will find a number of threads discusssing all of your issues and how the address them.

ciao

Interesting.. I wish I had discovered this forum before buying mine. I have an '07 Cafe R and getting around 28mpg. I still suspect its running very rich so theres room for improvement.
On a related note, how much fuel is typically left in the tank when the fuel warning light comes on? I ask because I ran 20mile (32km) on the last 'dot' but when I filled up it only took 3.25gal (13litres). Suffice to say I thought I was going to run out but logically there should have been plenty left.
