Neil_K Posted October 13, 2007 Share Posted October 13, 2007 Hello All, I am a new user to this site (tho' I have been looking over the posts for a few weeks now). I am also a new rider, having just purchased my first bike; an 1987 K75S. I love it. The moto being 20 yrs old, I am making that error of seeking for problems that do not exist. I'm not used to vehicles that run SO well w/ 20 years of service. My bike has 29,000 miles, 1,700 of which are mine in my first month of riding. What follows is a post I made to another site, for which I received no responses. If anyone here can help out, I woud really appreciate it. Thanks so much in advance... So a couple weeks back, I parked the moto on the sidestand and left it running to go into the bank on a cold morning. When I came out, the low fuel light was on (depsite plenty of fuel). I stopped and restarted the engine, light off....no probem...I figured that the angle of the tank exposed the sensor unit. I hadyet to test at how many miles traveled I would absolutely need fuel, and figured the light worked due to that other episode. This am, at 215 miles since hte last fill, I started to get intermittency, and even one stall. I managed to get back to a service station and refill, and the bike took 4.5gal (my tank is supposed to hold 5.2). The light never came on. The bike definitely needed gas. So... there appears to be a little malfunction w/ the light. Shortly, I will receive h-grips in the mail and will need to pull the tank for their install. Can anyone direct me to the appropriate lead to check this sensor? If possible, please use very newbie language, since I remain totally new to this. Thanks in advance. Link to comment
