05 Deluxe gas tank size

I was wondering if anyone could tell me the size (gallons cap) of an 05 Deluxe. All the specs I have looked at says it is a 5 gal cap. I dont know if my gas gauge is messed up or not but all I can get it to take is 4 gal when I gas light is on. Was also wondering if it is a 4 gal tank is the newer tanks a 5 gal and will it fit on a 05.

i'd say 5-gallon. when the light comes on you still have approx. 1 gallon "reserve"

Ride it till it runs out of gas, push it to the station, fill it up and let us know for sure!!!
(my Deluxe held 5.1!!!)

Book also says 5 gal. and light comes on with approximately 1 gal. left. Put a quart aluminum camping fuel bottle in the bag and test your mileage using the trip odometer. I go mostly by mileage rather than the gauge. My gauge seems to be very unreliable.
