As not to further offend some I will start a new thread on this machine,to those who own one or know a buddy with one what kind of range are they getting on a full tank with gas stops becoming a vanishing quantity its important to have a sled that ranges well,and to that end the oil tank is it good for a couple tanks of fuel?Joe

2000 miles. I absolutely love this fucking thing.   

Money is currently 50/50 on whether you'll need fuel or crank bearings after 100 miles.

850 update. My brothers is working good. First ride, no plug issues or exploding engines. We ran from my place in Griffith to Eganvillle then to Golden Lake and on to Barrys Bay for lunch at Ash Grove

Not so much in the local area Poncho speaking mostly tops A trial loop Englehart over to the C and down to Sudbury and a swing back east in the past had to stretch it out due to the trail leader getting us lost and doubling back here and there hes old enough I think he is the same guy that got the Louis and Clark expedition in trouble.Joe

A friend of a friend read on the internet that you won’t need gas as they all blow up immediately so better just plan short rides with tilt n loads nearby.

We have family down in the Rideau lakes area so we do quite a bit of riding south on the 311 and loops up and around to the east then north to Ashton then other times to the west Barrys Bay area loop back snow conditions generally are better that direction.Joe

850 update. My brothers is working good. First ride, no plug issues or exploding engines. We ran from my place in Griffith to Eganvillle then to Golden Lake and on to Barrys Bay for lunch at Ash Grove Inn. Return was the same route. We put on 190 miles. Fuel consumption is a little better then my XCR 800.   For comparison my XCR 800 fuel burn was the same as my old 2010 1200 for those who ask.

Another ride today, no expositions, burn downs or plugs fouling. The 850 is still running, some how....and so is my XCR 800...go figure.....We rode from my place to Eganville for the Vintage Show, afterwards we went to the Sands on Golden Lake for lunch. Tons of sleds. Back via Eganville and Dacre. Great day 170 miles.

Probably a 650 triple. Looks like the GR Blizzard for grass drags. Probably owned by Joe Clarke. The Pro Stocker was a purpose built race sled. I'm sure the Karpik Bros helped with the design.
