I thought the Z1000 is supposed to have a 4.8 gallon tank.

My fuel light came on on the way home from work and I rode in to work today. I thought I would fill it up at lunch.
It wouldn't start while leaning on the kickstand. I sat on it leaned it upright and it started. I rode to the nearest gas station and it died 50 ft from the pump.

When I filled it up (leaning on kickstand) it only took 3.96 gallons up to the top.

Where did the .8 gallons go??

Anyone else have this problem??

Thanks

I'm pretty sure it's a 18 liter tank which is equivalent to approximatley 4 gallons. Looks dead on(if off by a cunt hair).

This really gets on my nerves. That's false advertising in my opinion. It should take what it is listed. That was a major selling point for me over the SV1000.

Oh well, what can I do.


Thanks for the replies.

The Z1k has a funny tank. It has a relativly large portion in the bottom that cannot be drained. I dont know if its a full 0.8 gallons, but its close.
