    I wasn't at this event, but that seems pretty short?

    Robem is working on that, but nothing short term.

    6-7 months? How large thinking of going?

    It would be for 2023. We have to get through Twins Cup before we can put some serious R&D into it. Enough fuel for a 2 stop strategy in a 4 hour race is ideal, not sure if it can be done without being too pricey.

    I thought our 600 tank was big and it only gets about an 1:20. Another 40 minutes on the bike might take some effort for this crusty rider.

    By my estimations, need about 1.3 more gallons (5.3 gallons total) to be able to do 2-stop.
    2023 Season works for me.
    If you need a Beta tester.....

    Actually seemed surprisingly good for us- SV with a 6+gallon tank, at the more stop+go CMP the light came on at about 1:15 but at RR I went about 1:30 and no light. Yes, it's high speed, but you're rarely slowing down a lot and having to burn fuel getting back to speed.

    Jesus. Six gallons is huge. Ours was a stock tank.

    Did you see the Army of Darkness Frankenstein tank? It was crazy.

    I got one full hour out of my FZ07 stock tank which is 3.7 gallons. I was down to 1 bar on the gauge for 2 laps and pulled in. I bet on the next lap the low fuel light would have come on. But, my engine is in SS trim and running 92 octane non-ethanol pump gas.

    We could last 45 minutes with a stock tank on the R6. Everyone of us had the fuel light come on right after the 45min board. This is using race fuel with SS build.

    We need a bigger tank... However, nothing made me happier then seeing my fuel light come on hahah. That was a long 45 min...

    Well, a bit of a change. ROBEM will be racing the 4 hour at PIRC and we should have the prototype steel endurance tank on the RS660. Stop by the pits and check it out. Still working on fuel capacity details...
