    Where's my fuel guage gone?

    Went out for a ride today on my f900r and the fuel guage that appears at the top of the TFT (in the status bar) has disappeared.

    It returned when I hit reserve but the went again after I filled up.

    Previous to this it was definately always there as I paid alot of attention to it.

    I've been through the settings menu and the fuel guage option for the status bar was ticked.  After unticking and ticking, I now have the fuel symbol there with range in miles, but the actual guage is still not there.  This was my first time messing with the settings, so I don't think it's something I' could have done.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    There are several things that can display where the fuel gauge is. Scroll through them by pressing up on the Menu rocker button.

    A picture would really help.
    You have 2 different fuel gauges on status bar - one showing remaining miles/kilometers the other is 10 bars (each coresponding to roughly 1.5l). Which one is faulty?

    The one that has disappeared is the 10 bars. The other one, showing range (which is next to it) is there but I think that only appeared when I deselected then reselected the fuel option under status bar in settings menu.

    It disappeared before I stated going into the settings menu.

    I think maybe we are not on the same page here.

    There are 2 parts to this.  In the setup menu you get to choose what can be displayed in the status line.  The items that are selected are the only ones you can see.

    Once you have finished with setup and you are riding you press the top of the menu button to scroll through the options you selected in setup.





    This page in the manual describes how you scroll through the items you have selected in the setup menu.  It will only show you one of the items which you selected in the setup menu at a time.

    Well now I feel a bit stupid, as it's a case of fat fingers and RTFM.

    I didn't realise you could scroll through the status bar display and I'd obviously done it accidentally.

    Thanks for  the help, display back to how I like it now.

    as soon as the bike gets to reserve, it changes automatically to range display, and it stays in that mode even after filling up.

    so this happened by design, not by accident  :001:

    I disagree with what they have done with this.  I think the fuel gauge should be separate from the other options and consequently always visible.  Of course they would need to find somewhere else on the display to put it and that may be hard.  Iím sure they could do it if they wanted to.  Anyway,  glad itís sorted
