I have a Factory Pro kit in my 98 750. I used the larger pilot jets and 120 on the mains. Needles in the middle clip. Gearing is 16/47. regularly get 50 mpg. I ride mostly rural to the N. Ga. mountains and back. Sometimes when I ride with a cruiser buddy I have gotten 55 mpg. I use a Garmin to verify my mileage. With that gearing my odometer is within 1% and speed is about 3 mph fast. 160/60 R 17 rear tire. Still have good power. 5K rpms at 64 mph.

Doing simple math: 120 (miles per tank) / 5.2 (98 Katana fuel tank capacity) = 23.07 MPG.
