How about a Rotopax or bigger tank ? What do you think ?
Must be getting old, "weak mind,strong back" We'll ,even my back threw me a new one yesterday. Was riding the XR over the pond bank (can't seem to stop once i get started) and my back felt like someone stuck a knife in it. Was in mid air when it happend, didn't have any rough landings or nothing. A wise man once told me when you get older your back goes out a lot more then you will Guess I'm lucky I got out last weekend to ride.
A friend of mine routinely gets 140-160 from his 4 gal tank. Got to be something wrong if it only took two gals to fill. Or you got hoodwinked about the tank. A four gal tank should be more than obvious though.

I will take the tank off and drain it so I can check the filter. Will fill it from empty to see exactly how much fuel it will hold. My back feels a little better today. Still no pond bank jumping for awhile. You guys that get to ride today have fun and be safe. Thanks for the info, Njoythecouch

Dealer info

Need some help please. I am about to buy a new enduro/HS bike and am interested in a Beta. I need to know if any of you have info on the dealers in FT Smith and Heber Springs. I do not mean to start a controversial thread, just asking for some local knowledge. Or should I look elsewhere, thanks.

Used to be Smackover Motorsports was the dealer to go to for Beta's and Gas Gas's but they closed the doors a couple years ago. Don't know anything about those two dealers.
