It could also be a auto self destruct on a time delay. Check your clock to see if it's running backwards. :popcorm

You're running 115 miles on 3.3 Imperial gallons, which gives you 34.8 miles/imperial gallon.  In metric, that's 6.75 l/100km.  That's not too good.  You should be more in the region of 5.3 - 5.5 l/100km which is 53.2 miles/imperial gallon.

Here's a link to my Fuelly results for my K75.  A K100 should be close.
I wouldn't expect as high a result as Robert is quoting if you're riding two-up in hilly conditions, but you should be somewhere in the forties. The two of you are svelte riders.   :yes 34.8 is too low. Part of it might be down to gear choice. Try riding only downhill. That should help.

No nukes headed for N. Korea best I can tell. 
Not so fast! They might be incoming.

Did you try starting the bike with the switch in each of its different positions?

DON'T mess with it it's probably an auto self destruct. :nono
Regards Martin

I flipped it a couple of times already.  No nukes headed for N. Korea best I can tell.  That's a good sign, I guess.

Blackie since I have now retired nothing that mild will get a rise out of me. I could make a crack about Kiwis, but it would be too easy and be a cheap shot. :neener:
Regards a totally cooled out Martin.

Contact me, Adam, if you want me to accompany you to do a once-over.  Hopefully it's not in Kanata or London or somewhere else well outside the GTA. :)

With the lumpy response and the rather poor showing on fuel economy, there might be something up with the water temperature sensor.  It might also be the "Z" tube leaking between the crankcase and air plenum.  Try the test using propane gas around the TBs while the bike is running.  Lots of threads about how to conduct that test.

I highly doubt that TB sync problems gives you the symptoms you're seeing but it certainly will help towards fuel economy and better running to do that procedure.
