Mine seems to be doing the same thing after I got it back from 24k service. It would usually stay full for 120 miles or so, now the first bar disappears much earlier.

I took some pictures. Am I right that two of the drains come from the right tank in the photograph? Where exactly can I find the source of the servo brake one?

I'll see if there is any pressure when I fill up today. But what's this about venting? There is nothing about it in the directions.

Thanks for explaining that. I only forgo it because I don't have the feelers and a few people want me to ride tomorrow. If there is a problem it will be corrected within 200 miles.
