YZ250 Gas Tank Question

Recommended Posts

My son will be racing a 45 min. moto at Cahuilla MX this weekend. We have a Clarke 3.2 gallon tank will he run out of gas??? The longer races are new to us as he races MX. He is a intermediate rider, riding a stock 2007 YZ250 with VForce reeds, a ProCircuit Pipe, 180 main jet.

Thanks for any advice.

exactly --I have a clarke 3.1 on my 06 yz250 and have gone as long as 2 hrs 35 minutes in a harescramble

I actually can't imagine you would have a problem running 45 minute moto with a stock tank ...I'm pretty sure I would make it on mine.

I did a 2 hr harescramble last month (i'm an MX rider) and I made it 1.25 hours on a stock tank. I'm not sure how much longer I could have made it, I took a pit stop then.

I would say he would be fine on a stock tank. At the GPs I run, including Cahuilla, I have never run out on my stock tank. We run 45-60 minutes races. If I have my desert tank on, it is still half full most of the time.
