, That would have been a good idea. I unfortunately didn't have any tools with me to even remove the fairing to access the fuse area. In the future I will absolutely keep some fuses with me and some basic tools so I can check over that possibility as well.
On your second point, would the oil pressure sensor not allow the engine to turn on in a low oil situation?
@David, I forgot to mention that. I do have a PCIII on the bike that was installed prior to my taking ownership. The bike has a Akrapovic exhaust, Power Commander 3, Sprocket kit (not sure the teeth count), it also has what looks like some vacuum lines under the instrument cluster that have been disconnected and plugged. I think this is called a "flapper mod"... please apologize my ignorance as I am not very well versed on even the more common modifications.
So if a specific fuse goes out, the bike will shut off? This seems incredibly dangerous. Not to cry or anything, but I very easily could have been injured or killed as a result of this malfunction but I guess it can happen to all bikes. I am so disheartened by this issue as my RC had never given me problems before and it is my dream bike ='(
**Edit: Plenty of gas, I get anywhere from 100-120 miles per tank before the light pops and I was refilling every 70-90 miles .
As far as the vent line, I am not well versed enough in the bike design or general mechanical ability to have checked this possibility.
Thank you for all the responses!
