Hi Guys

I want to travel for 2 weeks trough the sahara.
I've got a Yamaha YZ 400 '98.
Is this a problem with this bike to do about 200 miles a day ?
No worries, i've got the big fuel tank and there is a car with me, but i don't wanna blow my moto in the sahara.

Thanx very much for any info's.....

carry some extra oil, you'll blow quite a bit out the breather hose if your planning on doing 200 miles in hott weather, extra air filters and filter skins wouldnt hurt either
