Gas problem? Bike shut off before tank is empty
Before i start i'd like to say that i used the search button but couldnt really find an answer. My bike is an 08' graffiti edition with 8,6xx miles & a custom slip on (although i think it may just be the muffler) im the 3rd owner.
I do a good job at keeping an eye on the gas guage & the mile trip meter so i knew i should still have around 40 miles to go while the light blinks red, i was getting off the freeway when the bike started sputtering so i got nervous & luckily for me there was a gas station about 1/4mile from the ramp but once i got on the street the bike shut off & i tried turning it back on and it sputtered then i made my way to the side of the street (opposing traffic) which was slightly embarassing because it's a block away from my school too, thank god for a helmet! Anyways, it managed to turn on & sputter it's way to the gas station then shut off and when i filled the tank it only filled 3.8 gals & out bike holds 4.8 gals correct? So idk why it was turning off! Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!
