Dont know if you have had an answer to your post but anyway,
I have a D1 1993 I can confirm that the tank holds 25lts, 24 of which are available before you hit reserve and 1 when on reserve. I can garuantee to get 185 mile (English miles that is) before I have to switch on to reserve on my bike at a steady 80 mph.
Dont believe the fule gauge, mine stays on full for 120 miles then drops like a stone over the next 65. I have got into the habit of restetting the trip metre each time I fill up so I know I have 185 miles befoer needing a refill.
Hope that helps.

The fuel gauge thing is a common complaint...mine is like everyone elses....120 odd mile it dosent move then goes to empty in 60 miles.anyone had problems with dirty oil...i changed n flushed mine...20 mile later its black again(yes i did the filter too),would like to say though i nspite of the niggley faults i love the bike,i had 2 vfr 800,s before and loved them,but this thing is on another planet performance wise,its as comfy,and dosent give me a numb fingers which doing motorway speeds did on the VFR,it handles as well and im stunned to say that the build quality and finish is v v close to the Honda(mines a D7),if your thinking of buying one go for it...they are fun and fabulous machines,i had a zzr600 many moons ago and that almost put me off as it refused to tip in and just wanted to go straght on...the 11 tips in lovely,a little push on the inside bar and over she goes,one thing to watch for is the oil cooler...as far as im aware...and i trawled the web..other than scrappers you can only get them off Kawasaki...i just paid £370,so if nothing else its a good bargaining point.glad i bought mine,my local service center love it.it gets stared at for all the right reasons and i just cant see me selling it,nothing out there dose what these do for the money,i bought it for a few months fun and sell it on...cant part with it now

Had a D7 for 11 years until a dog headbutted the bodywork a couple of years ago and the insurance company wrote it off. Loved it, stll miss it even if it needed a bit of wrestling into corners and the front end was a bit vague in corners, the grunt was addictive, It once did 360km before reserve with gentle highway riding. Being in my later 50s, 5'3", 10.5 stone it was a big, hefty bike for me even with its relatively low 780mm seat height. No problems there with its replacement, a GSX-R750 K4 with a lowered seat and Yoshi TRS can. About the only thing it doesn't do better than the ZZR is touring range.
