No need to zero the odometer when you fill as the fuel gauge should adjust to the new level, ie full. I'd suspect your fuel level sender. Get it checked at dealer and use the warranty.

Seems to be a common misconception that the 750 has dropped to 47bhp. It hasn't. In fact according to Honda it's output is 40.3kw (54bhp). It's the CB500X that is A2 license (47bhp) friendly.
