I've got a dual-sport coming up with 80 mile loops and no gas stop. I have not run out of gas YET, but usually need reserve around 50 miles. I ride a lot of single track at race speeds so I may get better mileage in a DS event, but I can't imagine getting more than 65 or 70 miles out of my stock tank. Think I will buy the ZIP Ty tank since I really like the slim profile and weight carried lower. Any else have an opinion before I lay down $250.00?
DS is the only way to go.
Ddialogue's bro-in-law went 83 miles in Moab last week on his WR450
with the stock tank before hitting reserve.
These big singles get great mileage on the road.

Your running too rich IMO. Should get better than that!!

I was parked next to Ty Davis and co at the Alligator Enduro in Daytona a few weeks back. They were running YZ 2-smokes but I did get a chance to look at his tanks. If the WR version is similar I think I'd like it. I'll PM you my email address.
I've got photos of it installed if you'd like to see what it'll be like on your bike. Just PM me your email address.

I think the GYT-R Acerbis looks great and is narrow. It holds its gas higher like a wr426 at the cap but who puts there nuts there anyway? I have mine set up so I can switch back and forth with the stock one. I prefer the stock set up for protecting the radiator better.
Indy. You wouldn't happen to have any pics of your bike with the Acerbis tank would you?

Anyway when I get back after Easter I can email pics comparing the 2 tanks mounted from the exact same views.
Otherwise there are pics already on this forum. here is the link: http://www.yamahaoft...peCode=&Second=
