It will vary depending on terrain and riding style but most people say they have gone 45-60 miles on a tank.

Raced Sunday (Over 40 Novice) last year. Same bike as yours. 4 laps was 93 miles per my odometer. Pitted once. Topped it off at the pump after the race. Burned 1.3 gallons on the last two laps.

Usually safe to figure 20-25 mpg.

I also have '08, and rode a fairly long loop in Colorado (close to 50 miles.) Had plenty of fuel left, although this was at high altitude so it got better mileage because of that.

And I was just trail riding, not on-the-gas racing!

Is the stock tank 1.9 gal? I had about .75 gallon left.

thanks guys!!! ill just have to pit every lap....should be a great time!!!!!
