Default Bad Gas milage

Hi guys I have noticed recently that my bike is getting terrible gas millage, I have the block off plates, Ivans flash, and pcv with an Ivan tune and Cobra swept pipes with baffles. I got my gas light yesterday at 59 miles!!!! The bike took 2.75 gallons at that point. It runs great and has a ton of power, another words it runs great. Im not one to beat the crap out of my bike but of course do at times otherwise why have a Warrior right? Anybody ever have this happen to them? going to get a hold of Ivan and see what he thinks but thought I would ask you guys.

I would start with some clean plugs and disconnect the PC5 or set to zero. See how it runs after that to trace who is the culprit.

And also inspect for cracked or leaky fuel lines. Maybe a leak while running only
