Update....Although I hope no one has to go through this, if you do here are a couple of items that my failures may make it easier for you....
Here's what happened to me (most of which I claim as my own fault). After getting my bike completely
back together, I fill it with 5 gallons of premium, fire it up, it's running great,....what the hell is that puddle forming under the bike?!?! Well of course, its gas.
The fuel gauge still reads empty and the Yellow triangle is still on
. I am now pretty sure I hold the quickest time world record for stripping all the plastic off a KGT and pulling the tank ...in the dark....while gas is running out.
Yes, fumes keep mosquitos away
After the tank was out it was quickly apparent that I had not gotten the pump flange seal correctly seated. It's not a seal that simply fits between the tank and the pump. 1/3 of it sits inside the tank, 1/3 of it presses against the side of the pump as it slides into the tank and 1/3 of it seals the exterior of the tank and exterior pump flange. Sliding the pump in tends to pull the seal with it...(use spray silicone).
Don't fill the tank up..put about a gallon or 2.
Don't put all the plastic back on until you have tested your work
The fuel gauge would not reset until I went up to the gas station and filled it completely up even after putting more fuel from the can in it for a shakedown flight.
Don't know why...but I was cussing until I pulled out of the gas station
