15 tooth from sprocket, a little less go but I hit reserve at ~300Km

I'm putting my new fork springs in tonight so I'll be dirty. I'm trying to get everything done this week. I want to have all my wrenching done this week so I'm no doing anything last minute.

Let me know,
I'll go 16x45 (instead of 17x42)

Sean carry a lot of gas, I'll take a rotopax 2GL with me

Crazy night last night

Pulled my RM250 forks apart and crammed in some YZ250 spring. Everything fit

Hard as hell to do. Dual cartridge fork and everything is bolted together inside needing some special wrenches that I didn't have. Probably the hardest upgrade I've ever done. All finished now and things are a bit stiffer. All the internals are scuffed up from using adjustable wrenches to grab onto things. Good thing it's on the inside and no one can see it.

I did realize I put my front tire on backwards, doh, but I think it's going to stay that way until after the trip. I don't feel like trying to fix it now.

Well, it's only 22L
I never have ridden this bike off road yet, I don't know if it's enough or no...
But I'll do an easy removable holder, and see after one or 2 days if I keep it or not
