Posted January 29, 2010 - 04:57 PM
I am doing a ride with a new group and its going to be the longest ride i have done without stopping by the truck for gas.
I ride a 2006 yz450 with a dr.d system and a jd jetkit and a stock tank... riding in the desert... any ideas what i should expect for mileage

A hard question to answer because it relies heavily on how you ride the bike. If you ride alot of tight single track, then the mileage is worse due to the shot of gas every time you let off and then roll on the throttle ie: I usually get much better mileage than my riding buddy who is constantly blipping the throttle - same bikes. If you tend to drop the bike quite often, you lose the fuel in the bowl out the vent tube. If you ride a fairly steady pace with not too much " throttle jockey" action you will get better mileage. Only you know how you ride and it's not always the jetting that makes or breaks the mileage on an off road bike. Best to carry some gas or stow some at the halfway point if you can. WR Dave
As you can see people are all over the place on mpg results. I would just follow the advice above. Figuring out what you get on your bike for mpg is the only way you'll ever know what to expect.
