Fuel Gauge Acting Up
« on: September 16, 2015, 04:45:21 pm »
When I filled up a couple of weeks ago, I noticed that the fuel gauge was slow to register full. Yesterday, I filled up again and it took about 10 minutes for the fuel gauge to slowly work its way to the full mark. I just kept an eye on it while I was riding. Has anyone else experienced anything like this with their fuel gauge? It still works, but I wonder if its a indicator of it eventually failing.

I think they all take it little time to re-register to full right after a fill-up. 10 minutes does seem a little long, but I know on mine it would take at least a minute or two.

If it's any consolation, mine also takes a few minutes to full register the refuel :001:

Thanks for the feedback, I feel better about it since others are about the same. This last time just seemed unusually longer than normal. I'll pay attention to the next fill up and see how it does.

This has been discussed before, but - from the Owners Handbook :

After refuelling, the fuel gauge and range to empty information
will be updated only while riding the motorcycle.
Depending on the riding style, updating could take up to five minutes.
So if it really was 10 minutes ( 5 minutes can often seem like 10 minutes ),
then there may be a fault with your fuel level sensor.

If it was 5 minutes or less then all is well !  :028:
