    The plug is behind the horn panel on the tank, left hand side. Gently gently when tightening the bolts back up as the nuts behind sit in plastic.

    Check the wires they are all plugged togheter, but i did notice the wires leaving from the tank are bare where they go in the tank.Going to work the tank was full but showing half full. Leaving from work there was no bars at all showing for the fuel. :cry

    You've got me here, unless they updated the SE there is no fuel gauge as such....so no bars on the screen. Just a low fuel light on the dash that gives you about 20 miles to refuel.

    Geeze your right! So stupid of me. The bike before my SE the horizontal bars was for fuel not heat. Got the bike last summer and didnt remember that.
    Thanks for the heads up... Lol i must be overworked...
