That's sounds like a good ride. I know my rappy with the stock tank uses about a full tank every 1.5 - 2.0 hours of solid riding at wheeler mx park in WI that is very sandy with a lot of elevation changes and hills. I'm not sure if any one makes an over sized tank yet IMS and Acerbis makes tanks for other machines. You will definately want a 6ply tire instead of the stock dunlops! You may want to consider an over sized grab bar that can haul gas cans?? Maybe a support vehicle??

There are a few questions.

Do you have mods?

What are the other quads that are going?

The first half of the trip is 124 miles. If you can maintain 40mph you should be able to do the trip in 3.1 hours of riding. If it's up and down and twisting curves I'm sure you will be wasting more gas and it will take longer. So, I'd just strap on a extra gas tank to carry with.

As for shocks, stockers will work fine. If you have SE shocks it will be more comfortable for a long ride like that.
