Low fuel light

Woe unto you that bought the first model year of a major remake, perhaps this section can help address any 2014 and later model Ural "imperfections". Here's a special section for folks with the latest rigs to discuss 2014 and later model-related topics such fuel injection, 3-wheel disc brakes, hydraulic steering dampers, spin-on oil filters and other anomalies that don't belong on true Russsian motorcycle ;-P We've gone from using big hammers and greasy wrenches to needing computers and Ouija boards in order to fix our rigs.
Forum rules
Please keep this section specific to issues pertaining to 2014 and later models such as fuel injection, sidecar and rear disc brakes and so forth. Ask general or non-2014 and later specific questions in the main Hammerin' & Wrenchin' section.

i like the odometer style 150/160k then gas up.by the way what up with the shape of Ural tanks in the old days you could see farther in to see the gas level!

Same for me early yesterday morning (day 2 for me). My "savant light" didn't illuminate either. I did go a little farther before empty.

Turns out I was only 2 1/2 miles from the next gas station.
