Owner of new 08 with fuel issues
I purchased a new 08' ZX-10r last week and tonight I ran out of gas. What's unusual, is that I had a full tank of gas before I went riding and only had 90 miles on the tank when the bike ran out of gas. The low fuel light was only on for 5-8 miles when my bike completely shut off. I pulled over to the side of the road, waited 2 minutes and the bike started. The bike ran really rough; when I got the bike to the gas station there was still gas at the bottom of the tank, it only took 3.3 gallons of gas. Afterwords, on the ride home everything was normal.
My manual states that the low fuel light will only come on when the is .8 gallons of gas are left and that the tank capacity is 4.5 gallons.The bike only has 490 miles on it, and I am taking it in on Saturday for the 600 service. Any clue what the problem could be?
