    Well, first you need to learn to avoid heavy throttle and keep your speed down, that will help a lot. Beyond that, you could look to adding a fuel cell (if you can find one) or a reflash; here are a couple links for you...

    should bring it into line with Ho fuel use
    on a 200 km ride we did a couple of months back
    i used 79 liters in my fzs (motec Et low boost) and a stock Ho on the same ride used 86 liters
    he was forced to ride hard to keep up though
    most of the other supercharged skis used aprox 100 liters

    Opening the airway (intake, ribbon delete) will help a little, but not much. Add a reflash, and you will see a big improvement. As long as you keep it around 6000 RPM, you can go a long way with the reflash. Last fall, I went on a ride with about 8 other skis. When we reached our destination, most of them were on their beepers, or close to it, including my wife on her FXSHO, and she rides SLOW. I still had almost half a tank. I had the fastest ski out there, and got the best mileage running an R3 and a B1.

    Of course, if you reflash, you'll probably also need to re-pitch.
