Fuel Usage

That is subjective. We can ride for 3-4 hours or more on a tank of fuel. Riding 35 - 40 mph for distance is another matter.

Trail type riding or road type riding?  

My wife's 08 Gas Gas 125 can get maybe low 20's milage wise in open trails riding in mostly 4th and 5th gear. In slow technical trail riding lost of lower gears 1st to 4th gear maybe 14 to 16 miles.  

The above is best I can remember, it's been quite some time sense I tracked a ride that close and didn't write it down.

by comparison my 07 Montesa 4RT's best distance was a lot of 3rd to 5th gear riding with maximum of 24 miles to empty.

I think you could do most local club trials on this starting with a full tank assuming the tank is the same size as a sherco 125.

I used to fill up on 3rd lap ( on my sons bike) but stopped doing it recently as I felt I didn't really  need to and touch wood have not ran out.

I would be interested on views generally on this, appreciate the bigger 2 stroke bikes will drink more fuel.

Am I cutting it to close to the bone is the question.
