Oversize fuel tank for D17 hare scrambles?

For those racing in the D17 hare scrambles, are you running your stock tank or an oversize one? I bought a rm250 2stroke last fall and got both tanks with it. This year will be my first hare scramble and I'm wondering if the larger tank is really necessary.

Thanks
Dave

Regular HS you will be fine. Enduros you have to refill though.

You'll be fine on a regular fuel tank. Some of the faster guys have to refuel, but that's because they hold the throttle open and haul ass.

I'll probably be doing a few family enduros in Michigan too so I may just keep the larger tank on. That sucks because its extra weight and I hate the way it looks.

You wont need the big tank for family enduros either. Those are on closed courses, and you'll be in the pits often enough to fill up.
