Glad you got it up, sync’d and programmed. When I installed mine, the fuel level bars immediately appeared. The one thing I didn’t do was set it for tank size. I need to take another gander at the instructions to see how it’s done.

It does look to me like the battery tender could keep power supplied to the Speedometer with the Main Fuse removed.

Here is the 2017 Wiring Diagram:

They did on mine when I installed the speedo back in December. At that time I wasn't planning on adding the level sensor so I turned the fuel gauge function off.

I think you have to push the right turn signal switch after you set the fuel level function on and tank size will be displayed. Then you scroll thru the tank sizes.

Thanks Firehawk. I definitely need to do this. I only burned through two tanks of fuel during my engine break-in, but during that time I could ride for a while, get down to 1/2 tank on the bar indicator and 5-10 minutes later my low fuel light would come on and the fuel level bars would disappear.
