I installed new cams from the V-Strom which are optimized for lower RPMs, but haven't completed a whole tank yet. This bike has an open loop fuel system, so it doesn't adjust the fueling. That may mean I have to get it tuned to see any improvements. I'm shooting for 100 though! Other parts were also installed, but the cam is the big one.
That's excellent.

Best I've done on my '06 SVn is 63 MPG, but normally I run in the mid 50s.

Worst it ever got was on the Interstate in windy conditions running about 80 MPH (we had a long ways to go). Mileage was in the mid 40s at that speed in those conditions. Naked SV just doesn't like to run that fast.
