Extra fuel extra weight causes handling problems....but underseat and no more than 15 litre replacement main tank good for centering weight. Side tank and anything on back including tools can cause problems. Bigger main tank with tools in gap under seat best. If you use a back pack with army rations platoon pack etc for your overnight rides it is even better to put a fuel filled 2l coca cola used plastic bottle in backpack. Petrol doeses not melt coke plastic....hmmmm. you need room for water of course.

Good advise. Iím setting this bike up for the ďTour of IdahoĒ over my 50th birthday! Going to need 250 ish mile range. Iíve ridden a DRZ400 with a 4 gal tank and could easily manage. Iím going to need to carry an extra 2 gallons other then the tank. Iím planning on a 2 gal fuel bag. On the back held down by a Mosko moto 40l reckless system. Should do the trick!

Hey Rock

go for my jetting kit it leans off the fuel and returns excellent MPG. I once did 3 3/4 hours in a race on one tank.

cheers
