'84 Shadow 500 fuel tank capacity?
Can anyone tell me what the fuel tank capacity is of a 1984 Honda Shadow VT500C? The bike didn't come with an owners manual when I bought it.
this is my...boomstick!
Back in the old days...I can hear you all yawning now...we used to just open the filler and check if there was gas in it before we rode. Repeating this until we got a sense of how far she'd go on a tank. Pretty easy, 'specially considering the Shadow's teardrop on the frame style of tank.
Not trying to be a smart ass, just trying to help you solve your problem.

Says 12 litres with a 5 litre reserve, the gallons should say 3.3 US
Thanks for that. The reason I asked was because I put in some gas the other day and the pump said more litres than I thought the tank held.
