When I turn the key on the fuel gauge bars go all the way to the top and after it cycles all the bars disappear. I start the bike and let it run and still no bars. Trip gauge, miles to empty. All of it says 0 now, too.

Mine did the same thing when I pulled the tank to install the grips. Give it some time. I think mine figured out where the level was after a 15-20 or so mile ride or the next time I topped it off. I don't remember exactly but it was out of sync for a short time.

Have you ridden it since reinstalling? It requires a short ride and it will come back just like normal. It has to do with the Canbus system and how the ECM processes all the data. There are more lengthy explanations previous in the thread.

I just installed OEM heated grips and had no issue...but probably because I skipped step one. Step one: Disconnect battery.

Hopefully that works after some time. It's supposed to be back after 1/2 a tank or a few miles of riding. Mine was serviced at the dealer and it hasn't worked since. Still trying to get it in for long enough to diagnose, order parts and fix. My low fuel light still works at 120-130miles.

After my ECU updates, my fuel gauge goes to full, until I ride the bike. Just running the engine with the bike stationary will not reset the fuel level indicator.

I skipped step two also: Remove the fuel tank.

I could see the connection without doing that. Made it quite easy.

Yep after about 1/8 a mile, one bar appeared and then another and another. By mile 1 it was all back to normal.

Looks identical to mine 2.5 months ago! Since then I may have modded mine a bit...

My thoughts exactly. Then I noted who the poster was and said, Naaaah, that's not HIS Tiger.

It's the "omg I am spending too much time looking at my beautiful clean bike and not enough thrashing the shit out of otherwise perfectly good rear tyres" hole.
