Whoever put that carb on it was not interested in mileage. I'd check to see if it has a hot cam to go with it. You can buy that engine down to 850cc for the economy versions, and it isn't too comfy internally when over 1100.
You probably want to get rid of the fender flares. Unfortunately, the easiest solution for streamlining is an Ogle body, and they are a bit thin on the ground now. Rounding the front, reducing the intake and de-seaming the A pillars would help. Going to a 1-box shape with a more raked windshield might halve the cd.
