Do not park your bike w/ a low fuel light on.When it sits for over a month the fuel evaporates and is a pain in the ass to start.Its like running out of gas....thought i was going to have it taken to the steelership till it finally came alive,,,lol

The fuel doesn't evaporate, but the air in the tank condensates on the inside with the temperature fluctuation and causes water to mix in the gas, fouling it. A long term low fuel level also leaves more of the tank interior exposed to air for prolonged times and can cause premature rusting.

This should be more common knowledge but glad you found out before you had any serious consequences.
