OK that was a total joke. I took my bike in and they said they would run a test to see what was wrong with the fuel gauge. When i went back to pick up the bike they said there was nothing wrong with the gauge. I asked them to explain how the a 4.5 gallon tank shows empty (last bar flashing) yet it only takes 2 - 2.5 gallons to completely refill it? The mechanic I talked to was understanding but said he had to do as he was instructed by Yamaha.
Don't get me wrong I love this bike but my experiences with Yamaha overall have been disapointing starting with their revolving credit socalled loan offering that thankfully i did not use, to the bad attitude of the dealership, the cost of the 1st service $275.00 and finally this a piss poor way of handling a very obvious problem with this gauge. Sorry to say my next bike (next year) will not be a Yamaha. (Was considering the R1, which is really what I wanted before setteling for this FZ8 due to my long layoff from riding).
