Baja? Hmmmm, I'll have to think about that!
If the 450 is a KTM, then you get maybe 150 miles, maybe 130ish on hard single track. The KTM's (a 450, two 525's and a 690) were limited to less than 150 miles or less. The DRZ Valdez 400 was sitting on a half tank, 4.3 gallons in Baja when were adding fuel. Seems the mains on the carberated KTM's were a bit big at sea level.

Need 200 + mile range in the Baja.
