Update to post #54

I went out to the garage this morning and re-zapped the fuel gauge with my BBQ igniter. Started the bike and a couple of minutes later the gauge read full with 193mi range MTE - just like it should. Fuel gauge appears to be working normally again

All I can think of is that while connecting my multimeter yesterday I must've moved one/both of the two center pins just enuff to where it caused a fracture in the carbon strip? Or my GS didn't like watching me ride off on the Honda... Anyway not gonna look a gift horse in the mouth here. In a couple of hours after the roads thaw a bit I'll take it for a ride this afternoon and see if it's working properly. That is IF I can get my riding pants to zip shut. They seem to have shrunk a bit since November
