Larger Gas Tanks
The stock KLX250S gas tank is made of steel and holds 1.9 gallons of gas.
This does not give you much range.
There are three popular replacement tanks available Clarke, Acerbis, and IMS
A good source for all three of these tanks is Just Gas Tanks

Another way to extend your range is to use the 33 oz MSR fuel bottle
They can be carried in your backpack or fastened to the bike
Theyíre available at most sporting goods stores
I bought mine through Amazon
And thereís a handy Tractor Operatorís manual canister available from Agri Supply
The 22 oz MSR bottles will fit perfectly in the canisters with a little room for some padding.
I put the MSR bottle in a thick sock and it still fits in the canister.
The cap screws on tightly for security.
It has tabs to mount it on the bike.
The KLX 250 is geared a little tall from the factory and benefits greatly by changing the 14 tooth countershaft sprocket to a 13 tooth sprocket.
I good place to get a quality AFAM 13 tooth (part number 24502-13) sprocket is from Cogent Dynamics.
Call Todd, Joyce or Rick at Cogent (828)-628-9025 and ask for the 13 tooth sprocket for your KLX250S.
Cogent also has fork springs and shock springs available for the KLX250S
Stop that front end dive with a pair of .44 kg/mm rated Cogent springs
The rear shock also benefits from the Cogent 6.1 kg/mm rated shock spring
