Just a thought - has anyone warned 'The Boss' that it is all about to kick off again

What is the current requirements for fuel capacity?

Found this picture from the LA Dakar Page:

http://www.ladakar.com/wp-content/up...1/DSCN3513.jpg


Whilst IMO is an extremly simple/clean solution for a Dakar bike, I was not sure that the Safari Tanks solution, had quite enough capacity?

http://www.safaritanks.com.au/home/1...ypage.tpl.html
It states on the safari website that the tanks are 21L at the front and 8.5L at the rear.

I thought that around 35L was a reasonable minimum.

Any thoughts/comments?

For the current Dakar (since 2006), you gotta be able to go 250km between fuel stops. Most people add a 10% margin of error to that. Before 2006, you had to be able to go 350km between fuel stops.

For the average 450cc enduro bike, 28L should just about do it, but there are too many variables to call this a rule. Anyone headed to the Dakar better have tested their fuel consumption in the correct conditions several times.

fun fun

They are pretty friendly with how they place fuel stops, as well. I had been concerned it would be 250k of soft stuff (which could be a lot of gas!) but they only stretched the intervals where it was more firm and possible to get reasonable mileage. I had 28L and was never cutting it close.

The fast guys need much more fuel, something about time on the main jet.
