I was going through my Suzuki Service Manual,

the Specifications on page

General information 1-9.

Service Manual Says,

"Dry mass Weight 394-Lbs" for the B650.

I wish they would say how they got the Dry mass #.

I cannot believe that all the liquids make up another 219-Lbs for a total curb weight of 613-Lbs.

Something does not sound right, even if you add the battery to that i cannot believe there is 219-lbs of liquid on that bike.

I have seen Dry weight listed other places as 525# for the 650.

I find that very hard to believe.

613-525 = 88#

Taking into consideration

Gas 4.0 gal. x 8#ea = 32#
battery 2# maybe i doubt that much
Engine Oil 2#?
Trans Oil 2#?
Final gear Oil 2#?
Coolant 5#?
Fork Oil 1#?
Shock Oil 1#?
Brake Fluid 1#?
bearing grease 2#?

50# total on my best guesstimate

even if i add 50% for something I missed taking the weight to 75#

There is no way that comes up to 219#

That's a typo, someone punched the wrong button on their calculator when converting from metric to English. 238kg is about 525lb.

Also, gasoline is about 6 pounds per gallon, water is about 8.

Ok a mistake in the manual makes sense.

Its not uncommon to find errors in factory service manuals depending on year, published date, and revision number. You basically look across a range of years that are the same and figure out which is which.
