    Hi, my bike (08) has been setting for about 4 1/2 months in a heated workshop this winter. It gets moved around depending on room needed for projects so it doesn't just set there in one position for the Indiana winters. Never put a trickle charger on it this year so yesterday was pretty warm so I fired it up. Took about 2 to 3 seconds of turning to run. I notice the fuel gage was not moving and stuck down. Knowing I had fuel in her I decided to fill her up with some fresh fuel while she was warming up. I let her run for about 4 to 5 minutes before the fuel gage jumped up to full. I let it run for a few more minutes and shut her down. That's the first time I can remember the fuel gage sticking like that. Does anybody have this issue too? Thanks Kroyleahcim

      It noticed you spell your name backwards here and had a hissy fit, lol. Don't let the battery get too low your starter solenoid contacts could stick.

        At 60,000 miles my fuel sending unit went out on my 2008. I just replaced it. The fingers on the circuit board were totally worn off. I got erratic fuel gauge readings

          My 2012 RS shows empty when I first start it up, after a few seconds of running it acts right. My bike has 15k miles on it.

            I'm not sure if it's the same with the older bikes but on my fuelie when I fill up the gauge doesn't come up until I begin to drive away.

              That's the way it is on my '07, but the needle still should make a sweep on turning on the ignition.

              On my 01 the gas gages is about as useless as the oil dip stick. Sometimes it works, most of the time it doesn’t. As long as low fuel light works, I’m good. I keep my eye on odometer and start looking for gas around 150 miles.

                I turned the key on and my gage jumped to full and back to 3/4 tank. Seems to be working fine now. Supposed to be really nice here this weekend, time for a early season ride. Thanks, be safe.
