around? You can get someone to refill there if that is the case. I am not sure if you can get 45mi on stock tank. Check with IMS, they can tell you, & sell you larger tank.

If I were you? I would go buy one of those 1 quart plastic gas jugs that take the place of your handlebar pad. I used those before, they work well, give some padding, and are cheap and quick to fill your tank. Then you should be covered if you do run out. I think Acerbis or Maier makes them.

I had a 106 hare pnt to pnt last year so i was very concerned whether i wud b able to make it the whole way and maybe make some ground up by not pitting so i figured my milage from the previous race.
I new exactly how far the last race was( and they were similar in conditions) When I was prepping my bike for the next race i drained my 3.3 Clarke and measured the leftover .
From there with a little math I came up with the result of 110 or mayb 115 miles on my Clarke.turns out it was so damn dusty I had no choice "but" to pit and change my goggles
"Both Pit Stops"
It weighed pretty heavy of a decision all week prior to the race and the dust made the decision for me!
I think you shud make the 45 easily.
I raced acouple races with the stock tank and never had a prob.
That's not thunder ridin' your BUTT .........
It's a whole Damn HURRICANE!!!!!!
