don't know about how many litres I can get into the tank, the hard thing for me is filling the tank, is it the garage I have been using but it seems to take forever to fill the tank , keeps cutting out ,even when I pull the nozzle as far back out of the tank as I can without pouring the petrol onto the floor  !!!!!

Angle the nozzle in the filler to aim towards the side of the tank - prevents the splashing and cutting off. With the shape of the tank, there's not much depth below the filler so petrol will splash back a lot if it's squirted straight down.

Cheers, Joe

I have had mine well into the --- zone and only managed to get 17 litres in. BUT I have also ran dry at only a few miles into the --- zone. So lesson learnt......Don't push your luck......unless you like a walk to the nearest petrol station :430:
Mods so far..Sargent seat.Akrapovic Carbon End cans.Fenda and Hugger extenda's.  Satnav mount. Acc. power socket.
