Has anyone on here ever had there Odometer mileage change on them? My 03 has been getting about 180 miles on it before the fuel light comes on but this week it came on at 140????? No changes to the bike or riding style recently? It has been consistant until this week as far as I can tell but now when I compare the miles my wife is racking up on her 599 to mine, she is showing about 300 more miles than me @ about 5000 miles and it should be the other way around, I have ridden mine more than she has! What the H*ll is going on here???
Has anyone here ever seen such a problem? Do I have a sensor going bad or something? Both bikes are stock as far as sprockets and tires etc go! This issue just seems to have popped up!
I appreciate any feedback the experts here may have for me!!! Maybe Nelbiz broke into my garage and tried out my gauges since he is having issues with his new cluster and coincidently he does just live lterally around the corner from me????????
Some people live and learn and some just live!

Never heard of a completely stock bike doing that. When i went down on the front sprocket it happened the other way for me. My bike shows more miles than I put on it. its is about 8 miles for every 100, and its a good thing i have no intentions of reselling the bike.
So there is not a single thing to change? did you dramatically change tire pressure or new tires or anything?
I have found that riding with a good side wind makes my light come on sooner. Riding on the highway one day my light came on at 140 kms. I just kept going and still put on 280 kms. I think it is just a matter of where the sensor is, but the light itself in no accurate way of telling how much fuel is in your tank. Using your odo is way more accurate IMO.
