Re: Timing is everything. Please advise.
Common "problem" that isn't a problem. If I leave the key on when I get gas (so the alarm doesn't set), it takes forever for the fuel gauge to read properly. Maybe part of the gauge "damping" so it doesn't change as you lean left or right. If I turn the key as far to the left as it will go, without locking the handlebars, when I fill it reads like it should. I'm in the habit of turning the key all the way to the left so that the GPS powers down as it is powered by the map light.
