Did you try leaving the gas cap loose or off when you drive it after a fill up? If the problem goes away with the gas cap loose or off, then your tank vent line to the charcoal canister has fuel in it, and you need to get rid of the canister, or at the very least, trace the vent line down as far as you can, cut it so it pokes out the bottom of the bike, this is a common venting on many other bikes, then plug the other side of the hose with a screw, will solve the issue.. Also the bad reading on the fuel gauge can be caused by fuel getting into the vent line, causing the tank to collapse, which can crush or dent the tube the fuel float is in inside the tank, not allowing the float to move freely, causing erroneous readings on the fuel gauge...My guess?? fuel in the vent line
