Low fuel light inop

Found out the hard way my light is not working. Any trouble shooting tips? What do I check first?

There's a wire connector for the fuel light under the tank. Is it plugged in? Sometimes when you remove the tank, this either doesn't get reconnected, or doesn't get plugged in properly and it doesn't get discovered unit the next time you really need it. To test the light you can short the two pins in that plug and it will light the bulb. If the light works but still doesn't light in a low fuel condition, then you need top look at the sensor. If you reasonably handy, this is something you can fix as opposed to having to buy some assembly from Honda. More on that once we know if it's your plug, light or sensor.

As I've gotten older, I seem to have less & less problems with my "low fuel" light. Probably because whenever I stop to take a leak, I go ahead and fill the tank. I guess my "tank" fills up quicker than the bike's tank empties out!!!
