Refueling in gas stations, canisters necessary in the bivouac and will be transferred by organization only in case one gas station shows incapacity of quantity supply in some small villages.
In the regulations it is clear that you need 150klm of capacity, this does not change.
Maximum distance per a tank is 144klm.

I was told a 690 will have enough fuel for this event with just the standard tank, Do you need the front tanks?

@HellasRally

The technical regulations say;

Minimum one rear view mirror.

Is this really mandatory, because a rear view mirror on a rally bike isn't exactly common

Almost all rallies I have raced in Greece require this, I think it has to do with the fact that Rally bikes are obliged to be road-worthy (lights, horn etc)

just pick up an Acerbis folding one, or even better support Ned

Are you serious? Or is it only necessary for scrutineering? In the pictures from last year there isn't a single bike with a rear view mirror. Actually, I never saw a bike with a rear view mirror on a rally

@HellasRally: what are the costs of a day license for the entire rally for foreign competitors?

If you are looking for a quick-fix, I'd recommend one of these cycle mirrors - A Zefal 'spy' (bottom left of photo) - I've used them on all my race bikes, and if it passes FIM scrutineering on Dakar, then you shouldn't have any problems... it actually works ok too (you can just see a car behind me in the photo) as you look under your elbow...



Obviously it's not as good as a larger mirror for regular use, but it stays out of the way and as such is pretty indestructible. Remember that 'technically', the Scrutineers can inspect your bike at any point during a rally, and if it doesn't comply, are at liberty to exclude you from that stage until the problem is rectified (or in Dakar, you're out!)

I have one fitted all the time. Really usefull in Liaisons, not only for cars but also to keep an eye if you are riding with friends and want to check that they are keeping up without straining your neck

the Acerbis I have folds neatly out of the way on Specials, see image below
