i took my bike into the shop saturday to get my 15/50 520 conversion done. they kinda left my key on all day and killed my battery. i picked it up at closing time and they jumped it good. i took it home and trickle charged it over night. when i put the tank back on this morning, my fuel gauge reads full, but it flash for the whole 20 mile ride to work. what gives? :bitchslap

I would demand that the dealer replace your battery.

Only thing I can think of at the moment is the 2 connectors at the underside of the take .... maybe thier swapped or one isn't pushed in all the way.
It's a pain to get under the tank again but I would start there. I don't think leaving the key on and draining the battery would cause the fuel guage to blink ..... at least it didn't the 2-3 times I killed my battery :rolleyes damn heated grips

Maybe the sensor/resistor inside the tank got stuck when you lifted the tank. Try riding to jog it and it should return to normal. If not, Zippy might be right.

Well at least you found the problem, guess that's a good thing.
I'm Supprised to hear you say that you didn't disconnect anything when you lifted the tank. If I don't disconnect those 2 connectors under the tank I can't lift mine very far. DO you remember if it was like that the first time you were under there??? I wonder if the shop lifted the tank and failed the disconnect the wires and did it.

Or you can just wire them up to your left headlight so the grips can only come on when the light comes on :)
That's where a relay would be useful.
