Coolant Reservoir Tank Question

Does anyone know how much coolant the reservoir tank holds? Or what the difference in fluid level/amount between the Minimum & Maximum marks are?

Reason I'm asking as I want to install a custom made tank.

Cheers in advance, Gaz

You can easily disconnect it and refill it with water which then can be poured into a large measuring cup if someone does not come up with the answer quick enough for you.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
**Really not sure if the Big "C" is back right now
but having to face the fact that this is a lifetime routine
going forward. Five operations done and it still continues.

it probably isnt real important how much it holds, as long as it holds 'enough'

I have a crappy memory, but here goes. The L mark is roughly half the size of the F mark (I think this is also true of most radiator reservoir, at least it was on my car). I used a water bottle and filled it up about 1/4 of the way twice, once with water, second with radiator. First time went above L mark and second time went above F mark. So a guess would be 6 to 8 oz total to full mark.

Don't take my word for it. I'm just a foolish newbie.
When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.

Total coolant capacity is 1.6 IMP QTS. (1.9 US quarts)(1.8 Litres), or just under 8 cups.
I just went out and looked at my scoot. Just eyeballing the coolant tank cover, I estimate the total tank capacity holds perhaps 3 cups. Two cups up to the Full mark.

Good thinking... I am pulling the engine out this week, but I'll do a mock up with the new tank in place just to make sure everything fits
