Gas gauge not working.

Anyone else's gas gauge nonfunctional? Not matter how much fuel is in the tank the needle sits on E. No service bulletin on it yet that I've found. I'll have the dealer check it out on my first service but wanted to see if anyone had a fix for this problem.

The 250 didn't have a fuel gauge before it got redesigned so its gotta be an 08.

But if you ride like me, I would fill up by 180 miles.... that way you won't be pushing it to the station

my fuel gauge would stick on e, so i just tap it and it worked as normal, not sure what caused it though.

I have a problem too so I'll add it here...sorry for the highjack!
My guage won't go to full! I fill it to the top(with proper filling technique) and the guage only shows a little over 3/4! And then it gets down to E with what I would consider a decent amount left (1/8 to 1/4 tank) next time I fill up I'll note how many gallons I put in, where guage was prior and after as well as mileage. I seem to be getting only aroun 120mpg when it's at E
Any ideas?

Again, sorry for highjack, just seemed to fit in with your question

Perhaps a silly question, but is the sensor on the bottom of the tank plugged in? If I remember correctly there's a green and black wired plug on the rear-bottom of the tank. If you've pulled your tank for any reason you have to unplug that. It's very easy to forget to plug it back in.

Hi Vex, Thanks for your suggestion.

I haven't done anything to my bike, and I don't know very much about mechanics.

Is "rear bottom of the tank" somewhere inside the fairing? If possible, would you please post a picture about where the plug is located? Very appreciated!
