Did you just give it a good wash, or was it just ridden through heavy rain?

If not, you likely have a faulty termistor (fuel pump level sensor).

Please add your bike's year and model to your signature. Here's why.

O'er the land of the free and the home of the brave!

I suggest running this by the Victory Fuel Pump Master, Rylan Vos (The Vic Shop, Inc - 515-339-4313). I have just sent him a PM also to get his attention to this thread and see if he can shed some more light into your low fuel light issue.

The low fuel thermistor wire is probably broken off inside the tank. I've seen that quite a few times. It's probably grouding out which is lighting up the light. You'll have to remove the fuel pump from the tank and either fix or replace the thermister.
