KTM 2 stroke stuff / XR650R stuff. Stiffy's house of bling
Dunno about them KTMs, but I get about 45 miles to reserve out of the 10L tank on my XR650R.You'll be able to get a bigger tank though. I got a 16L IMS one for the XR, which gives me about 100 miles to reserve now.
I think i read on here some where, something about cutting the main fuel tube in the tank and making it shorter. Has anyone done anything like this to their bike?
Not me. Interesting idea though. Might have to do some experiments on how far I can go on reserve at the mo' (with a can of fuel in a rucksack or something ) to see if it'd be worth making the reserve bit smaller......
I just got 132 miles out of mine before the fuel light came on (leaving 2 litres). So that would leave me about 14 miles to find a Petrol station
I have a 9 ltr tank on my 625 smc and am getting about 50 miles before having to switch to reserve. Is this normal or is there some way i can get a bit more milage before switching to reserve.
Can i buy a larger tank?
You can get larger tanks, but I think you need a new seat to go with it. IYSWIM?

I had the 18L tank on my LC4 It fits on no problem no seat change requiredI got rid as;a) It makes an already lardy bike lardier stillb) The extra weight bends/mullers the sidestand bracketc) My ass range is smaller than the tank range
