I don't know that I would call it a fuel gauge, maybe a wast of space would be better. Samething here, stays on full till I hit 100-115 miles then goes down fast...............

most FI bikes don't have fuel gauges, none have reserve switch/petcock. they all have low fuel light. that's what you need to pay attention to. reset your trip meter (one of em' any how) at fill up. chances are unless you keep the throttle pinned or ride into a steady hard headwind around 150-160 miles the low fuel light comes on flashing. you still have 1.4 gallons or close. keep riding until about 190-200 miles and the low fuel light goes steady. now you definitely need to get your butt to a gas station. at fill up it will still have about 0.4 of a gallon. so far in most conditions of riding mixed together mine has been getting about 40mpg.

I had an '82 Yamaha Maxim 1100 years ago with the same type of LCD fuel gauge . . It was just as quirky as the 109 gauge. Maybe it's symptomatic for LCD gauges to behave this way, but no matter . . I've always relied on the odometer anyway to keep track of fuel level. ;)
