I raced an Enduro a few weeks back. It was 86 ground miles of a good mix of sandy single track, quad trail, and a few 5th gear jeep trail straight a ways. I had my big Clarke 3.6 gal tank on the bike. I had my bike on a hitch carrier across the back of the camper. Last time I strapped the fuel can up, in b/t the bike and the camper, I ended up marking up the paint on the camper, so I just left the fuel can home. I figured I could go 86 miles no problem since I was just going to be cruising around and not really pushing it for the enduro. It was a gamble for sure, b/c you know I ended up pushing it more than I wanted. I just drained the tank and had 37 oz left plus whatever is still in the bowl/carb!! Way too damn close!
Anyhow, by my math that is about 26 MPG for Enduros. Probably more like 22-23mpg once I get back in shape and charge the whole race. Probably 30 MPG for casual trail riding.
For Dual Sporting I'm going to go off of 40mpg. I got 46mpg on my 06WR450, but I have this 09 jetted a little richer, so until I get some hard data, 40MPG is my estimate for fire road Dual Sporting.
These numbers close to what everyone else is getting?
