What kind of bike do you have? If it is one in the Cross Country line (base, tour, magnum, etc.), then I can also see the needle move but only from the range slightly above 1/4 tank (red zone) to the empty position. Due to the strange design of the fuel level sensor, the needle does not move during the use of the first ~1.5 gallons and then behaves nicely until just above 1/4 tank and then after this point, the needle moves at a visible speed toward empty. Also be aware that when your low fuel light comes on, you have about 1 to 1.5 gallons left in the tank.

G'day,

Vinish

any bike that has a fuel gauge you should see it move.
New pipes doesn't mean you need a fuel tuner

With the Cross series of bikes, the needle will stay full for the first 70 miles or so, then it will drop quickly over the next 40-60 miles. I believe it's the way the float is situated in the tank. I rely on it as a guide only, as I put my faith in the trip odometer.
