Hello everyone. I have a quick question. My fuel gage will always drop until it reads low fuel and the gage will show empty but when I top off the tank it take usually about 4.5 gallons. Isn't this a 5.5 gallon tank on the 2018 Vintage? Any advice appreciated. Thanks. PS. I absolutely love this bike!!

My '15 is about the same. I believe it's just I/P protecting us against ourselves.

Gauge accuracy is less than perfect. You are always better off not running your bike to the tank bottom anyway. Fuel pump cooling is affected by fuel levels.

Manual states, that the fuel light/low will come when "normal" capacity is used, than the reserve is one gallon.
Compare to carburetor engine bikes with a petkock. When engine is stuttering, you switch to reserve.
No petkock on the bikes, so manually switching, but in imagination it is the same.

Cu,
Sven
