Yamaha Hydradrive gear oil capacity

I can't seem to find Castrol SAF-XO and will need to order it in. As it is super expensive, I only want to order as much as I need.

Anybody know the fill capacity of a Hydradrive?

Thanks in advance?

i've never really looked at how much, i've got a large drum with pump on it, just pump it up till it comes out the fill bolt at the top, i'm thinking there's about 4l in each, drain one first, then buy the oil
