    SO a new to me 1190R and I have under 2k mile on it myself and under 17k total miles.

    Noticing the fuel level never dips below full. Would be amazing if that was the case...

    Previous owner did a fuel dongle. I literally have zero idea what that means. Apparently, it has to do with bad gas?

    Anyhelp?

    or search for sticky fuel sender

    Basically you can mod yours or buy a new sender that is supposedly not going to have the sticking issue. Either way you have to take the right side panel off to get to the sender then its just 2 bolts and a electrical plug I think to remove.

    The bad fuel dongle is unrelated, it does several things depending on what year your bike it I think. The features it adds generally are an option to run low octane fuel in the dash menus and keeps your ABS&MTC options set to off or offroad when the bike is turned off with the key and turned back on. It is a cable cap looking thing that should be on the end of a cable under the drivers seat I think.

    I will look into it this weekend. Bit underwater as of late due to work. Prior to this I had no idea where to start looking.

    I fell into this 1990R after my previous bike was stolen. That machine was a thumper and had no computer anything really. I had replaced the fuel pump on that several times before.
