SY175F trail riding range?

Recommended Posts

Anyone know what the typical range is for a tank of gas on a SY175? I am pondering some trail riding, Thanks.

Hi there even though I've owned one of these from new and trialled it regularly it's something I don't really know.

The tank holds only about 3 litres but they don't use much fuel specially  in competitions.

Certainly miles better than any other bike I've ridden.

Guess 40 miles on a tank minimum.

Happy trail riding.

PS Just checked a Yam YBR 125 does 90mpg so 40 miles for 3 litres of road on a 163 sounds reasonable.

Ok, since this appears to be unknown I have a plan. After I finish my trials practice/play session this coming weekend I will ride laps around the property until I hit reserve on the tank measuring my distance with my Garmin Edge 500. While it is somewhat inaccurate when riding under tree cover it is better than a guess as to how far the bike can go. I suspect I will want to increase my fuel capacity as the group trail rides I want to join are around 60 miles in length in the mountains.
