500 Mileage/Fuel Gauge

2016 500 w/240 miles

Anyone experience the fuel gauge flashing "low fuel" at about 45 miles. We started out with a full tank. Put a total of 55 miles on. Riding conditions were, 50, spotty snow slushy trails, 2-3-4 gear (10-20 mph), 360ish pounds of people and gear. I didn't bring any extra fuel so the last 10 miles was a bit nerve racking, every mile I kept telling myself, hey that's one less mile I'll have to walk. I haven't filled the tank yet to see how much I actually used. My thoughts are I've got a gauge problem, not a fuel consumption problem, machine ran great with no signs of excessively rich running engine.

I did stop and look in the tank at about the 50 mile mark and I could see fuel in the tank.

Anyone have fuel gauge issues?

Stupid Crap like this drives me crazy.

Were you doing a lot of down hill riding?? My gauge will do that if I go down hill quite a bit. Almost like the gauge is in the real r of the tank so when the fuel gets sloshed to the front it won't read it.
