Bit of a strange one this, so am wondering if anybody has experienced anything similar?
My fuel gauge (and range calculator) has always worked fine, up till last weekend. I was getting very low on fuel and just as i approached the fuel station, the gauge dropped low enough to change from "one bar" to "no bars and flashing orange light". I didn't think anything of it, fueled up, and everything seemed fine.
But on subsequent rides (I've been out 3 more times, including another fuel-up), the fuel gauge now often shows empty with the flashing orange light, even though i know it is half full or more.
It seems to work ok when ignition is first turned on but after a few miles it displays empty. Sometimes it switches from empty (false reading) to nearly full (true), and back during the journey. Usually it is showing empty.
It's not a huge problem, as i use the trip meter to keep track of fuel anyway (I've never trusted bike fuel gauges) but the unnecessary flashing orange light is annoying especially riding in the dark.
Eventually i'll have to take it back to the dealer i guess, but i would be key to hear about any suggestions what the problem is or similar experiences.
