If you're on and off a lot with the throttle and not actually doing any cruising long distances, then that would be normal fuel consumption for driving around a property.Hi guys ..i know im late in to conversation but ive a September 2019 kodiak with about 1900kms on it and can only get 5kms to the litre....about 14 miles per gallon. That is one person no trailer lambing sheep....so no major pressure on it
Seems thirsty but im not sure.
Your Kodiak is a heck of alot better on fuel then my 600 and 700 triple two stroke Yamaha snowmobiles. Lol.People think that these machines get great fuel mileage which isn't true. I have a 4x4 diesel truck that gets way better then my Kodiak and it weighs in at over 6,000 lbs.
I agree, why worry about fuel mileage when you are having fun. Even if you take a long trail ride you should have enough fuel in the tank for at least a day if not two depending on how your are riding. Then if you want to stretch it out some carry a 2 gallon jug or so with you.
Your Honda will use less gas because it has about half the horse power.Thanks Hondroid. I was just wondering as its my first 700cc bike. Have a foreman 500 as well at the moment. We were always honda quads here.. This is real mountain with very slow terrain averaging just 10 kms an hour... the funny thing is the honda is doing the same work and averaging just over 7.kms an hour.....seems we travel a bit faster on same terrain with the kodiak cos its much more comfortable. Thanks for your reply
