Gas Strip

15,000 miles on the 2007 K1200GT...got her a year late left over new....Anyway, gas gage got squirrely at 15,000 miles, reserve low fuel indicator was coming on and I would have 1 or 2 tenths of a gallon. New gas strip put in, now light comes on and I still have 1.4 or 1.5 gallons.....Anyone else?

Mine used to be dime on at 1.2 or so left which is what the owners manual suggest approx... But now more like 1.4 or 1.5, dealer says they can be varied that way....
