On my 08 1098s, the light comes on around 75-90 miles and I too fill up only 2.09 to 2.75 gallons a time. So as stated, the light comes on hella early. So far I average about 34 mpg with a one time high of 39.16 mpg. Yes, I keep track...I once got 41.86 mpg on my 748...

Hi guys,

I was looking into my gas tank today and I noticed that there seems to be a missing allen screw on the left side of the gas hole inside the gas cap. This is the screw that is almost opposite of the one that bolts the actual cap onto the gas tank inside the cap.

My low fuel warning light was working properly until I had to take the cap out for another issue. How do you guys think this is related? Can you check in your gas cap and see what you have inside?

Thanks for the help.

-John

the tank might be 4 gal, but you have to remember that the fuel pump assembly takes up volume in the tank. so realistically it probably only holds a little over 3 gals.
i've never put more than 3 gal in.

When I ran mine out I was only able to fit 14.7 litres in it, so the 15.5L fuel capacity is BS.
My solution was an ETI fuelcel (Google it) from John in California. Top quality, and great to deal with. Now I can put over 20L in it, and not have to compromise my rides by worrying about getting fuel. And the tank is about 2.3 kgs (over 5lbs) lighter than stock. Not when it's full though..
It's also nice to not have to put low octane fuel in it to get to a larger place when travelling.

The same thing just happened to me today for the 2nd time(Ran out of Gas). Thought it was a fluke the 1st time, but thank God it when it happened (it was on a downhill) and the gas station was at the bottom. The bike ran out of gas at approx 150.6 Miles. Something is definitely wrong w/my gas light. Will get it fixed, when I get my warranteed Tank replaced, in the off season.

I normally get around 80 miles before my gas light comes on. I would recommend taking your fuel pump out and inspecting everything. Somewhere attached to your fuel pump should be a fuel level sender. If it looks damaged or you can't replace it then replace the pump assembly. While you are in there replace the fuel filter. You will need to replace the clamps on it with a worm style clamp that you can buy at every auto parts store or hardware store. Do not over tighten the fuel pump bolts when you reinstall it. They are very weak and will brake off or strip.

I did not read but that last page of this post. Lots of people here do work on their own bikes.

I don't know what possessed you to go 150 miles on your bike without getting gas. These bikes do not have large fuel tanks.

Hope this was some help to you!!

I wasn't possesed at all, but the route we took (that day)was way far from the nearest gas station. I knew it was only a matter of time before it was going to run out of gas. Lucky for me there was a gas station at the bottom of the hill.
