My new bike's fuel guage has not worked properly from day on. I ran out of gas in the delaer's parking lot as i was bringing it in for the 600 mile service. of course I had 220 miles on the odo since the pevious fillup. The warning light never came on nor did the guage go too low.
It has been in the shop twice for repair, the last one was almost 2 weeks and who knows what they replaced?
Got it back and the fuel light goes on at "40 miles remaining". The countdown always works to a degree.
When I fill up, the guage never resets properly and shows less than a half tank and 100 miles to go. Nothing happens until I use up half a tank and then it functions normally. Bit it is erratic as to the amount at fill up.
It is going in again for service and this time, i am going to push for a proper "fix" or invike a lemon law case. And my bar grips do not heat. I found this out today on a ride when I turned on the bar heat for the first time since I purchased the bike. Fortunately, the owner of the dealer was on the ride and saw it with his eyes. He said" Don't worry we will make it right along with the fuel guage"..All other functions working normally.
A few stall during the ride fast shifting into 1st gear made the day completre.
The ride was awsome watching the fall foliage in Southern NY State and CT.
Still love the bike in spite of its faults.
