Low fuel light not working

My low fuel light only comes on when the Brutale S motor is started (so I know the bulb is good). Is there any trick to get the sensor working without hauling the bike down to the shop?

Thank you very much for replies. Right now I'm using Trip1 for tank milage (110 crummy miles and you had better be IN A GAS STATION).

1. have you run out of gas yet?
2. i think it's time to sell your bike if you think the 110 miles are "CRAPPY"

take the bike to the dealer
if the light ONLY comes on during the startup sequence..... only the dealer can fix it

My fuel sensor was bad when I bought mine, required a new one. I regularly get 125-140 miles per tank, and that's flogging it, maybe you bike needs a tune-up anyway?

I had the opposite problem with my F4 recently. The fuel light wouldn't go out, even after filling the tank to the brim. Thankfully it cured itself after a couple of days and I put it down to a sticky sensor in the tank.

If you can't fix it with a hammer you've got an electrical problem!


No MV's in the garage anymore

Guys,you should have patience!All Italian bikes and cars have electric problems unfortunately!!!
But I think if you have a good dealer's mech it will resolve them.

My first time out with my fiance on the R and the fuel light never came on and unfortunately we ran out of gas. However, it's never happened again.

Spalding12, you're right. There are no crappy miles on any Brutale. I love it more and more every ride. ...and yes, on the first low tank, the first week, I ran out of gas. Since then, I used the Trip1.

TUNE UP: I think, before I do my 6K tuneup, I'll get a Power Commander III and get it dynoed also.
