Those aren't the specs I've got here.

I dunno guys...

I'm going with hdeater's figure.

My official Yamaha '03 650 vstar owner's manual (the one that came new with the bike) says this:

Fuel

Type Unleaded fuel only

Fuel tank capacity 16L (3.5 Imp gal, 4.2 US gal)

Reserve amount 3L (0.7 Imp gal, 0.8 US gal)

I'm consistantly putting in just over 3.4 US gal when reaching a gas station within a couple of miles of switching
to reserve and the bike was advertised as having an overall fuel capacity (including reserve) of 4.2 US gal. when new.

.8 X 4 US quarts = 3.2 US quarts.

Thanks for the input. Unfortunately I dont have a manual to reference to and I received a few different answers when I asked around. So I basically have around 40-45 miles on reserve is what im guessing.
