[Solved] 2014 Street Triple R fuel gauge issue

Iím experiencing issues with the fuel gauge showing empty and the low fuel light on. I recently moved cross country and shipped/stored the bike ó had to drain most of the fuel and disconnect battery.

After getting the bike back, I hooked battery up to a tender (disconnected) and filled up the tank. Iíve taken it out for a few rides (maybe 5ish miles per ride) to see if the gauge resets, with no luck yet.

Any suggestions on how I can diagnose/fix this issue? Thanks!

Fuel gauge has to calibrate and adapt. It may take more than a short ride.

I'm guessing this was solved? I had this issue and it simply required a longer ride to calibrate itself. I have a '14 street triple R as well.

On-going... I pulled the battery for the winter (shortly after my last post). It's back in so I'll let you know once it's recalibrated. Got a whole tank to go through in the meantime...

Went on a 100+ mile ride today with one stop for gas and still nothing. Any thoughts on how I can diagnose the issue?

Have you been resetting your trip meter after refueling? I recall an older post where somebody thought that related to their issue (they weren't resetting it).

Have you tried disconnecting the battery again, letting it sit, then reconnecting?

I've been resetting the trip meter after refueling. I haven't tried disconnecting the battery... are you thinking this might be due to an issue with the adaptation process? Will disconnect overnight and see if that helps.


Edit:
This is still persistent after adding another 200+ miles and two more refuelings.

Thatís the thought. I just recall it from a previous post and did notice mine started working after I had changed batteries.

The only other thing I could think of is that something came loose with your fuel pump.
If the bike happened to bounce around turning transport, with little to no fuel, thereís a chance the fuel pump came a bit separated, and perhaps itís not getting the correct reading? Thatís just a grasp at straws, but the two piece fuel pump has been troublesome for me.

Just reconnected the battery, will take it out for a ride + refuel tomorrow.


I started the engine a few times and noticed that on two occasions the engine fired up at very low RPM (below the 1250 idle) and sounded like it was about to die before coming up to idle RPM. This happened once on the long ride earlier this week -- I chalked it up to human error (clumsy press of the starter). This sounds like it could also be symptomatic of a failing fuel pump.


Should receive my DealerTool next week... hopefully this will help diagnose the issue.
