Hot Sunday ride

With a forecast high of 38c today I went out early, not too early as the risk of hitting a Skippy are much greater.

Rode out to the Barossa on gravel roads, very dry & slippery with a fair few front end slides but back home after 140kms, stopped at a vineyard to take a few photos along the way. Back home before it got too hot, photos from this morning

Terry,

140 km. On one tank?? How far do you get with the TTR fuel range wise. And the WR?

Have you seen Tuesdays and Wednesdays forecast.
Gonna be a stinker.

Better get out extra early.

Steve

 And I was thinking taking the TTR on the Dustybutt... getting to dam old to toss the XT660

around though the challenge sections...

I would have to double the fuel range for a couple of the sections..  longest is 280kms between fuel stops..

 

so I will can that idea....

 that would be right, we go out for about 5 hours but only manage about 80 km so my tanks always half full.

 Most times I get 180 kms before Res. but the tank would be full to the brim, I have run it right out to test the range & got 230kms

The WRR would do 160kms before the light came on with the standard tank, I fitted a 11.9 lts IMS on the WRR & get 250kms without the light coming on & it takes less than 10lts, around 9lts I think, much better on fuel with the EFI

Pete the Clarke or Acerbis tanks would give you the range I reckon, and easy swap back when you don't need a huge bowser for normal use.

The 14.5lt Clarke tank to suit the XR250 / 400 would be ideal, I had on on my XR400, standard tank is 10lts & would hit res at 160 - 165kms but the 14.5 Clarke was good for 250kms before res.

Hi Terry

 

Sorry for the high-jack, but could you post a photo of your Clark tank.  I am still unsure what Clark I have, but it is around 15l.

My tank is stamped XR600/650, but the rear profile is different.  I should have filled up the empty tank at the filling station...

The xr250 & xr400 are inchangeable but the xr600 & xr350 are interchangeable
