I just purchased a 2001 VL800 with only 2200 miles on it. After yesterday, I figure I'll double that in about a month. Anyway, it seems the LED fuel guage might not be working. When I turn the bike on and the display initializes, I see bars from E to F. Once the display comes up however, all I have is a blinking bar under the E. I'm currently using the trip odometer to estimate my use/fuel remaining, which is a practice I've pretty much always followed (since I once found myself miles from anything resembling gasoline and the reserve on my Yamaha couldn't get me to a station), but it would be somewhat less alarming if, when I glanced at the gauges, it didn't always look like I has to gas up. Anybody know if there's some trick to this thing (didn't get an owner's manual) or have any thoughts on whether it's a sensor (perhaps the sensee?) or something else?
