Hi Daz That tank is actually on a wr 450 but the bike seems to get really good milage out of it ... When i had the S model i had a safari tank on it .. And was getting 400 ks on the road .. 17 ltr .. didnt actually ride it in the bush to much so cant say how it would go .. At the moment i dont find that much difference just riding dirt tracks and roads . as to just roads .. Be assured 17 ltr will get you a long way ..You will be ready to give your backside a rest lol

I havent botherd to much about how many ks i can get in the bush (just to hard). I never ride the same track the same way ..And with hills and wet weather ? to much to consider ..(getting a headache thinking about it) I just check the tank every now and then and leave enough to get back to the car ...

yeah i got 120k in the bush the other day and still had about a quarter......im just curious i went into the blue mountains here in sydney with a full tank and was a bit paranoid about running out......the further i went in.....i reckon 150k's would be a safe bet

Re:GETTING WARMER 8 years, 2 months ago #628

I did 140kms the other day, then drained it down to the reserve level - got 1L out before the reserve. I think our tank is 10L with a 2L reserve, which means I used 7L for the 140km. Or 20km/L.
