Fun local ride...and a non functional fuel light lol.

Post by Hodakaguy » Sun Nov 22, 2020 1:26 pm

Went out yesterday with the kiddo and put on 65 fun miles. Here I stopped to snap a pic of the bike with the Hanford Nuclear Reactor humming along in the background....making that power!

We also found out that the low fuel light doesn't work :D. I always reset the trip odometer at each fill up but hadn't been paying attention to it. A quick call to the wife had rescue fuel on the way : :clap:

When the bike died and coasted to a stop I told my son "I'm pretty sure we're out of fuel". He quickly replied "That's ok, we have an extra can on the back". I then said "Yeah but it's empty". And he replied..."What good is a spare can if its empty!". LOL....he has a point : :lol:

yeah, and empty gas can is about as much good as a spare tire without any air in it. Looks good until you need it :lol:

Cool! Time spent riding with your son is time well spent.

2018 should have a good fuel warning switch (float-style), but I’ve encountered one where a terminal in the two-pin connector was pushed out a bit and not making reliable contact. Should be an easy fix if you haven’t already sorted it out.
