I rode a poker run on Sunday which was around 34 miles or 54 kilometers and I hit reserve on my 08 wr 450 with the stock tank. It was the first time I had it out on the trails. I'm going to be a little nervous until I couple more rides on it for a true reading on the mileage

I got to 45-50 before I hit reserve when I was running the stock tank on my 07 with free mods and jetted with a pipe. Now I don't know cause I put a bigger tank on and never get to reserve because I find a gas station or I make it back to camp.

I always try to fill up before I hit 50 miles as I normally have to go on to reserve at 55 miles & thats on the trail.

I have the Clarke 3.4gal.? on my 08 wr. I like being able to use the stock shrouds. I think that I could do 100 miles on a tank.

Yamaha really missed the mark in 07' when they went to this smaller tank but I know the aftermarket tank mfg's are happy:busted:

With the stock tank on my 07' I had to switch to reserve after 35 miles once in the Desert.... went home and ordered the IMS first chance i could:thumbsup:

3.1 (i think)IMS tank, and woods riding I can get 80 miles in before reserve. However, reserve isn't much more, and I have to tip the bike over on the left to get the last few ounces of fuel off the right side of the tank.

08 wr and I get about 30mpg racing or play riding doesnt seem to matter

+1

This is a good number for me as well. Sometimes I get a little better, but I'm always golden if I plan for no more than 30mpg. IMS tank and no surprises.

03 WR450, stock tank - consistently between 35 and 40 mpg. I never ran it to reserve, but I suspect I can go about 90 miles on a tank.
