    Fuel gauge reset

    Hi. I'm a new Trophy owner and love it! Filled up fro the first time yesterday and noticed that the fuel gauge did not register the full tank until I had been on the move for a couple of minutes. Is that normal or is there something I should be looking to rectify?

    Thanks in anticipation.

    Perfectly normal and nothing to worry about.

    Page 34 of 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.

    This can also happen after disconnecting the Main Battery.

    Cheers  :821:

    Yes, perfectly normal.  You might even notice that it takes several hundred yards of riding for the average mpg to display- same reason.
