    Default How Much Oil

    I am building a custom Buell and want to ditch the factory oil tank. I made a custom tail section and would like to try and fit the oil tank under that.

    Because of that I have 2 questions / concerns.

    1) Will altering the height of the oil tank change anything in a bad way (This would be going about 2" higher.

    2) What is the minimum size an oil tank should be or need to hold? I can fit something about the diameter of a small coffee can but about an inch or so taller.

    Any help would be really appreciated.

    height should not matterjust remember to install your bungs so the feed is the lowest return and vent at the top and capacity should be at least three quarts

    I'd say a minumum of three qts. You might get awaya with a little less if you're using a really efficient oil cooler but why risk it.
