Fuel Gauge blocks odd occurance
« on: June 06, 2014, 07:32:22 pm »
This has happened twice. One after a ride stopped bike restarted engine the fuel gauge showing no fuel, no fuel range etc, after a few minutes riding fuel level indicators show correct amount. No other problems with the display. Today switched on bike again no fuel level indicated but after a short ride display back to normal.

Any comments welcome

Only happens with mine when I refuel. Otherwise no problem.

It is perfectly normal....

After refuelling the system requires a short distance/few minutes for the fuel gauging sensors to correctly register the level in the tank.

It is not anything to worry about

Thinking about this, the Trophy has a system that senses when a refuel
takes place : the fuel level sensor senses there is a higher fuel content
when the Ignition is switched on, than there was when the Ignition was
switched off, and goes into its calibration mode for a few miles
to determine the new fuel level.

Perhaps the same thing is happening with a less than full tank,
if you stop and turn off the Ignition while the bike is upright,
then you put the bike on the Side stand, and switch the Ignition back on
while still on the Side stand, because the bike is leaning over it probably
registers a different fuel level than when switched off
so goes back into recalibration mode ?  :084:

It will also show as  empty on a full tank if the battery is disconnected for a while. All perfectly normal. IAC, everything should be normal in around a mile of riding

Don't expect a TTSE to act like the older bikes did. Often, a lot goes on inside of these high-tech machines even to run what used to be  a rather simple function.

Dontom

That reminded me. Mine did the same but then realised the battery had been disconnected from the recall. I knew I had fuel. Used a simple trick shook the bike and listen  :745:

So used to running bike by the trip gauge.
Anyway it came back on after a few mile and a restart. No problems since.
