    Hi guys,
    I went for my first ride on my GT Pro today and tbh, I'm feeling a little deflated.
    The fuel light was on when it was delivered on Wednesday but the driver said it would go out when I filled it up. After filling her up, light stayed on showing 0 miles of fuel left. When I got home after 40+ miles, its still showing the same.

    Pretty much the same story with my 06/2023 gt pro.
    The bike was bought new, never showed a full fuel gauge.
    After four months and 3,500 km later, the fuel gauge stuck to empty, till today after 1.000 km.
    I haven't had time for dealership yet.
    That's the only problem i had so far.

    Went for a ride today, trying to empty the tank as much as possible.
    When it reached the reserve, (miracle happened) fuel meter showed it's on reserve.
    After 30 km went to a gas station, filled the tank on the top, turned the bike on, fuel meter showed empty again  :745:

    My previous Gen 1 and 3 would take a few minutes to re-set sometimes after filling up but there's obviously another gremlin to add to the list, for these Gen 4 machines. 🙄

    An update for you.
    Had a call from the dealer this morning. The bike will be returned tomorrow morning.
    They've replaced the fuel guage sender unit for the fuel light fault.
    The suspension fault has apparently been rectified with a software update. Hmmm, not convinced.
    We'll see.
