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.

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.
