Hi. You can increase the economy by fitting an NGK Iridium Spark Plug. Suggest you use Speed instead of normal petrol. You can also use the MOTUL 15W50 engine oil for better economy as well as performance. Ride safe.

Try to replace the corbuorator to Amal make. It is for powerful speed and economy.

The best bet would be fitting a Mikuni carburettor / Keihin carburettor of 28mm choke diameter, and tuning the airscrew lean and learn to gently acclerete and gently decelerate. This will give you 35Km/lit for sure assuming your engine compression is good and the electricals are also in good shape. Spark Timing is 1/32 of an inch before tdc for best jerk free running. 86 model uses a lighter crankshaft and therefore do not lug the engine at low rpm's and try to change gears well in time so that you are always driving with the throttle slide between 1/4th to 1/2 open and never more. Good luck, but ideally with a Bullet one never worries about mileage..!
