Sounds like the dealer needs to do an experimental autopsy of the gas tank.

My guess is a pump issue where it just does not pump right when the level gets low. There are some filters on the inlet that might have become degraded by a bad tank of fuel.

There was a guy here that had problems with gage not reading right. He pulled the pump and did a new float arm for the gage. Do a search.

Can the fuel pickup become disconnected from the pump? Maybe it's something like that...

So Words mean something here. "Out of Gas" so at 142 miles you are sucking air and pushing the bike? Or, are you showing a Hey Stupid you go find a Gas Station light?

Tank size is 5.8 gal, how much can you put in? 5.8 gal. What is filled up? To the bottom of the lip or to the top of the tank? My 2013 has this stupid lip inside the filler neck fill to the bottom of that you are about .5 gal short of full cap. Fill above that almost overflowing you have 5.8 gal to work with.

My stupid get gas light comes on giving my about 1 US gallon of gas left, 36-45 miles to the beat feet express.

I think Squatch is right...The OP probably means that the low fuel light comes on. at 142 miles. I know if I stop at the gas station right away, it always takes about 4 gallons to refill.

He didn't actually say "runs out of gas" so I would agree also that he's referring to the low fuel indicator instead of a stalling engine.
