I can tell you that my best friend has a 2011 2RS/SS with a 6-Speed Manual. He has SLP LT Headers, Complete SLP Loudmouth Exhaust W/CAI and a full custom tune. He just road tripped from Savannah GA all the way to Corpus Christi Texas.

Cruising at 76 MPH, he averaged 23.4 MPG on 3 fill-ups. His worse was 22, then he got 23.2, and his last leg was 25 MPG.

It becomes a bit painful around $4.00 a gallon but I ride my GSXR half the time anyway.

As with anything that gives more power or even the perception of it, it all comes down to your right foot.

With all my mods (inc supercharger) I can still get 25 down the highway. 27 if I drive slower than the normal 75-80 for me.

BUT. If I hit the happy pedal hard I get a low as 9.
