    2005 R1200RT

    Ohms at the 2 & 3 male pins on the connector: 2.538

    Voltage at the 1 & 4 female slots when calling for heat: 9.35

    Any help is appreciated as I’m hoping to be able to remedy this… I (admittedly) overfilled my tank while filling up for a long ride with some friends. With the bike being just shy of 50k miles on the clock, the gauge indicated low fuel level as I was on my way out of the station and indicated “---“ shortly thereafter. It has stayed that way ever since. I took advantage of the gs-911 beta that’s out and was able to see and verify, via multi-meter at the connector and plug and the GS-911 program that the resistor/filament/thing-a-ma-bob/fuel strip is has continuity, is within proper Ohm spec, and also verified the bike is calling for and sending heat to the strip. Any thoughts?

    FYI... The dark blue is battery voltage, the light blue is alternator voltage, the light green is fuel strip heater current, the purple is fuel strip heater voltage, the red is fuel sense voltage (none) and the yellow is film sensor heating.
