K1200S fuel indicator shows empty

for the first time in 6 years I let the gas inside the tank go down to nearly empty. when I fill-up the tank but the fuel indicator stayed in empty... I just did it again and nothing happens... still shows empty and the yellow warning light blinks (with a full tank) any ideas?

Unfortuneatly my friend its quite common, fuel level sensor strip has probably gone bad and its gonna cost you a fair bit unless you have warranty.

Fuel gage

Join the club. Me has failed three times. Left me stranded the first time. The last failure, two months ago, took the dealer 15 sending units to find a good one.
