Hello All,

I'm planning a trip to go on some serious trail riding this summer. I have a 2001 CR250 and my friend has a KX250.

Does anyone know how far you can ride on a tank of gas with these 250's? I always ride at tracks and never stretch the gas mileage.

We don't have heavily modified bikes, just a pipe and jetting.



Thanks,
Brian K.

Too many factors to determine mileage on your bike.. Best bet is to put a measured amount in the tank and run it out.. Do the math from there.. Mileage can vary from one bike to another, and from one rider to another.

I was just hoping for someone to let me know approx how many hours they road on a trail before having to refuel.

Any answers you get that suggest a certain amount of time are going to be guesses.. Put 1/2 gallon in your bike, ride, when it dies you'll know how far it'll go on 1/2 a gallon...

Determine your capacity, multiply. It's really not hard. And you'll know based on your own bike and riding style. It won't be a wild guess.

Figure about 15-30 mpg for a 250 2-stroke depending on riding conditions. This is a pretty broad range and gives you an idea, but it's best to calculate your actual economy as stated previously.

Yea, way too many factors. A guy I ride with and I have simular bike setups. Last race I was on fumes at the 35 mile pit stop, where as he went the full 48 miles on the same size tank. Same course, simular bikes (his is jetted richer), and basically riding style made the difference (I'm a little faster). :ride:

I would say somewhere in the range of 20-30 miles, depending on riding conditions. This would be with a stock 2 gallon tank.
