2015 adr rmx450z fuel range

Recommended Posts

G'day all. I am wondering what fuel range people are getting with the stock 6.2l tank. Haven't run it dry yet. Road riding mostly keeping to speed limits i'm getiing 80-85km and low fuel light comes on and use about 4.5-5 ltrs. Went to a local beach and 45k (all on beach,no fuel light) used 4.4 ltrs approx. I am trying to decide whether I strap a fuel cell on my back or get an IMS 10ltr tank. Leaning towards the IMS. Has anyone fitted an IMS tank and if so how was the process. I will need to get at least 100kms between refuel with hard riding.  Any feedback would be great.

Cheers,

Fangsy

Thank you for the links farmernz. I am going to pull the trigger on an IMS tank soon. Glad I upgraded from my DRZ400E.

Cheers Hongie, I have the ADR removed and airbox open also. I got an IMS 10l tank delivered yesterday. Will fit it maybe this weekend. How much different is the bike with the cheery bomb?

To be honest i don't know? Reversed everything from the crate before the first start! Bike feels strong off bottom, little weaker up top! Big engine pulses, caught me out a few times when first getting used to it, stalled it when lugging it up hills! i know to keep the revs up slightly more now!  :thumbsup: .. I prob will do the big tank before next seasons high country runs! we easy do 200k days! For now its been too hot and dry here for any lengthy rides  :(

I put the new tank on last year and haven't done that much riding since. In the last few weeks I done 138km (30km in bush/hills) and filled up to the max with 8.33ltrs, I haven't had the low fuel light come on yet, so am thinking I should get 150km to a tank. When its cooler up here in NQ ill really test it out with the DSMRA rides which are usually about 100k (90% bush riding). I am very happy I put the bigger tank on, easy fit up and don't notice the extra size when riding. :thumbsup:  :ride:

G'day Glenn. I bought the tank from Springwood Suzuki in Brisbane over the phone. Their number is 07 3208 7999. First I called Future Sport Suzuki in Townsville being the closest to me then Ballards Off Road (NSW) but they did not have one in stock. The tank is RMZ450 & RMX450 (2008-2010), IMS Tank ID:RM19, IMS Part#115529 / 215529. Cost me about $430 I think. Got my sis to pick it up repack it and del to me in NQ. Hope this helps.

 

Cheers, Fangsy
