Anybody's fuel light randomly flicker on while accelerating or revving? Mind does even with a full tank. I've brought that up, but its not as annoying as a blown tranny, so, priorities, you know? :roll: One bug at a time.

It's a known problem with all the bikes that they correct when ever a bike comes in for service. It's a wire they add and it solves it. My dad had his solved about 2 months ago. Mine hasn't had this yet. Amazing it wasn't dealt with when you had your trans. done. :? :? :? :?

Hopefully they fill a bag with swag and give it to you for all your troubles. I believe once it's all sorted you will forget all this and only have good memories of the bike in years to come..

My fuel light has never flickered except maybe during a hard stop with about 120 miles on the tankful. In other words when its just about to come on. Once it comes on I get exactly 24 miles before I run out of fuel, don' ask me how I know. :lol:

My light only comes on when I do ENDO's (stoppies). But that's probably normal..

The fuel light is the LOW LEVEL FUEL indicator on the left cluster. It pops up as an Orange gas station fuel pump when you have approx. 20miles to empty. I'm very sure it has been corrected for 2014 bikes and newer. If not, it's an easy and free fix from Norton. Ask your dealer and they can do it or maybe if you live far they will mail it to you so you can do it.

its a wiring loom glitch Norton have a mod for it but not all bikes have it so will only be sorted on service if you tell them about it..

The wire to power the warning led runs next to a bunch of wires with high current. Inductive power causes it to flicker, so they run a new wire on the other side of the frame away from inductive power sources.

But it is not the only reason for the flickering. Mine does it when driving in rain. And i know of at least one bike where the bypass did not solve the flickering.
