Rm 250

Recommended Posts

Well my buddy picked up a used 07 rm250 sat.

He has riddin for about 30 min so far but tommarrow we are planning to do about 55 miles on a desert trail.

His old bike was a xr400 which he was able to go pretty far but we have no clue how far his 2-stroke will go. Anyone know?

It depends on the terrain and speed...and riding attitude.. the worst mine ever got was 23miles on a tank.... I don't think it'll go 55

Yeah, he should pack some fuel w/ him. It probably would be close, though.

I'd start sweating after 40.

Pack or stash some gas.

Not sure how many miles it is, but I get around 100 kilometres +/- around 5 on my YZ, but like already mentioned it depends ALOT on how you are riding, what terrain, rider weight, etc.

Naw we did a loop insted so he had enough gas

This was actually the first time i rode a 250 2-stroke, i honestly fell in love with it haha. I might have to go scoop one up and add a larger tank for the desert riding i do

I could get about 45 trail miles out of my '02 RM250. Beyond that it's time to push.

If you do decide to carry extra gas, the best way is a bigger tank. 2nd best is an Acerbis number plate gas tank and the big ones are worth about 1 gallon. Beyond that if it's not approved for gas then your taking a big chance. A friend used to stash gas on some bigger trail rides and he used 1 quart glass beer bottles with screw on caps. They worked great as long as they were not in direct sun. If they were the gas would expand and push the cap off.

Personally I would never put gas in a milk jug. I've seen gas totally disolve one from the inside out. And if you had one in a back pack and it started to leak ~ well, if you didn't catch on fire then the gas alone would cause a major rash if you didn't wash it off.

Pop bottles are tough and I've never tried to use one to transfer gas. Personally I would let someone else try it first. Better yet, I would just find a bigger tank for my bike.

just pre test any container and lid your gonna try to see if its gonna disolve

guys l have talked to suggested something like this, there meant for camping fuel and sold at camping stores, i suspect if its safe for kerosene its ok for gasoline..
