Re: Yamaha Raptor 660/700 fuel consumption
I have the 700R and absolutely love it.
Since it's fuel injected there is a small savings is gas consumption (plus the added benefit of better performance at about all elevations).
I'ven been riding with my friends on Predator 500's, Raptor 660's and Suzukis and never needed to add more gas than the other guys.
Another thing is there's no reservoir for fuel; you get an idiot light with a low fuel warning.
The only real issue is that it's so freaking tall compared to others, but it makes a perfect "land yacht".
And it took me a bit of playing in the sand to even get the radiator fan to kick in.
So far it's been a pretty bulletproof bike!
Hope that helps.
