HELP I get roughly 70miles ona full tank! wtf.

hi I just bought an 04 Nicky Hayden with 3k miles. I get 70miles in an tank. I dont think its normal duh.
Previous owner didnt ride it much and before he took it out he was messing around with custom maps. current mods: full 2-1 Erion exhaust, PC3, DID chain i dont know the sprocket sizes.
Will it damage the engine if I keep running it in this set up? how much will it cost to have it tuned properly? thank you for your inuts.

What does the oil look and smell like?

If that is the case, it has to be going somewhere....Might want to go to the Dynojet website and download a base line map. I do believe there is a DJ map for the Erion pipe too.

Compression check may be in order just as a precaution.

how about you turn off the choke! If it is off check to make sure its not stuck open inside the TB's!

@madbuyer Thanks man. @cbrbear How do I know if the choke it's off or not? Rpms seem fine(1200ish) @rcdan I might have to do that, but the bike has only 3k miles?
Thanks everyone. I'll keep this post up to date.

left side (kick stand side) there is a button tucked in the fairing just below your leg. This needs to be pushed in. Then set your idle. (Good call cbrbear)

Thats a quick and dirty check....

There are quite a few members on here from VA that are close if you require some personal service.
