It's interesting that many say the real capacity of the tanks is under 4.5 gal.

That tid-bit might save a long and painful push one of these days.
Sasnak75,

In 2016, I did a “run it dry” test using my ‘15 XL1200CP. See post #97 in this thread for details.

Given that I’m not doing Sturgis this year, perhaps it’s time to do another test.
