or you could have a leaky tank…..  :431:
well if you want speed take it to the track, if you want enjoyment don't ride on the road, if you ride it everyday you have no choice. Just enjoy the moment and stay safe…..

You can get more than 19 litres in the tank.  I think the quoted capacity is a little conservative, probably due to expectations that the top is below the filler neck with the bike on the side stand.

I just fill till the metal part that sticks in the tank.
walking to the fuel station  :430: , there is definitely more then 19 liters that goes in. I've had 19.5 once.
I put the bike on a stand for gasoline, so there might be some difference in as well (mine is a bit bended (on purpose), so it sits lower).
