Hi Guys, can any one advise me on the capacity of the single 2T Oil Tank fitted to my bike? I appreciate that RD models had an additional(aux) tank, and have read somewhere that the Japanese designers wanted to keep the weight down as much as possible for the Japanese home market, hence the RZV500R only has the main oil tank. I have tried looking for the oil tank capacity on line and drawn a blank so far.

Many thanks,

Mart

The capacity of both tanks is 2.0L. I would estimate that 1.5L of that is in the large upper tank. The lower tank is pretty small.
