MPG/Ride Time Estimate

Recommended Posts

Curious of the approximate mpg/ride time you guys get out of your 250-300cc trials bikes? I know it's a YMMV question but I'm just looking for some personal experience. I picked up a couple MSR 30oz fuel bottles to take on 10-15mi single track loops as most have recommended. 

Just trying to gauge if I should take both fuel bottles, maybe invest in a gorilla bag for fuel?

Any info is appreciated. Thanks

approx    1 litre per hour

About the same here, and about 1 liter every 2 hours if I'm just out trail riding with my other half (she only pootles along off road)

Took a few trail rides on my 07 Montesa 4RT 250 and the best I ever got for miles was about 24.5 miles before having to use my fuel bottle (I did 27.8 miles total that day, sorry didn't check how much more fuel I used after adding the 1.5L bottle to the tank) I was in 4th most of the time and was able to ride in 5th somewhat often to get that and was almost never below 3rd. 

I doubt I would get that on my 2017 Montesa 300 RR and I would highly doubt I could on any 250-300 2T as even my daughters 08 Gas Gas 125 always needed fuel before my 4RT did on our family trail rides on the trials bikes. 

Hope that helps.

Thanks for the replies. I went riding last weekend and had no issues making loops. My longest loop was approx. 10miles and I still had plenty of gas when I got back to the truck to refuel, never touched my fuel bottles.

 

On another note, trials bikes are amazing machines, so much fun. My new TXT 300 makes my 21' TC 250 feel like a fat pig on trails. I don't know if I'll ever go back to riding my TC in the woods LOL.

I have a hard time riding anything by my trials bikes now as well even on trails because of the difference in feel and fun factor with how I ride. 

 

Glad you had fun and it worked out good for you!

Yeah, apart from the lack of a seat trials bikes are like Easy Mode for single track :)

I hear it all the time already... "where's the seat". That's when I sit on the airbox cover and say "right here" 🤣.
