Post 8.5lts = klms
Can anyone give me an idea of who many klms I would get out of a 8.5lt tank on a Husqvarna TE 250?

Cheers
Leanne

You should get around the 100km mark. Give or take a few Kms.

Never seen one empty a tank. Usually break down before that. Though Blair did complete an 80k ride on his recently.

Thank you both,

The bike is geared down one tooth on the front will that make a difference?

I've decided to take extra fuel just in case.

Cheers

The test will be Saturday. It's usually me that breaks before the bike.

Yeah sorry, was a bit harsh. Hope they have sorted the little annoying things and it all goes good. It's easier to carry a litre in your pack than to worry about running out. I find the motul filter oil bottles the best. Very sturdy bottle with a good cap and seal so you don't worry about it in your backpack. Or if you are a bit paranoid, the little aluminium thermos type ones from the camp store will never bust no matter how hard you crash. I tested them both to extreme. :D

No real test Leanne, you will be fine and will easly complete the loop I have sorted out,
No need to carry any extra fuel either, just come with a full tank of fuel and a smile the rest of the day will be fun,

If you have geared down one tooth on the front sprocket, That means you should have a 12 Tooth instead of a 13, If it is,you wont have a problem with fuel range. It will be more user friendly for you to ride and should climb hills better than Before.

Mine only has 6.5ltr tank.As Manager said we done 80km a couple of weeks ago,but i put an extra ltr in half way round.You'll get 90 to 100kms easy with 8.5 tank.
