I wish there was a way to turn off the ANNOYING LOW FUEL GONG of DEATH.

My display on my Orange Spark kept screeching at me seems like every 5-10 minutes as a result of a "FUEL SENSOR DEFECTIVE" warning immediately after start-up Friday afternoon.

The Spark was not empty.

Tried restarting several, unplugging the lanyard etc and gauge kinda came back. Display told me "low fuel" as the fuel indicator went up and down....went empty, Screeched at me again. Kind of embarrassing just off the ramp and you have the loudest computerized beep ever drawing the whole ramps attention JUST TO YOU.

My wife's Spark fuel gauge worked and she had a full tank so we just gauged off hers. Was not going to let some sensor prevent us from going on our first 12 miles one way excursion we had planned out.

Both are at the dealer now anyway for the steering recall so I mentioned the fuel sensor to the service girl if her techs could look at it while they replace the steering.

Good times good times. Big Toys take work to have fun. In fact, hope to get one of those BRP Can-Am Spyders in the future. (After 8 years my wife finally agreed to go and we went 2up several days ago on my Suzuki GSXR 600....at age 40, the crotch rocket is not as comfortable as it was when I was 30. She felt same and has been eyeballing the BRP Spyders since then.)

Oh I can imagine how annoying those beeps would be for the whole day. I wonder what's causing your fuel sensor issue.

Yeah who knows. Had just filled the thing too. Is it possible to overfill? I don't think so as I've been filling 2 inches to the neck like I do with all my 2up type toys. Air bubble? Not so easy to quickly check either. In fact stood at the ramp while I pulled the seat and checked fuel cap thinking that would fix it. No joy. That was fun trying to keep my plastic hull from scraping the jagged concrete ramp.

Glad I'm not hauling them 800mi to the in-laws on the Saint John Rvr in Nuvo Brunsweek Hey check out our cool Sea Doos! BEEEEEEEEEEEEEEPPPPPPP. Yeah those are great. LOL.

I hope they get the issue fixed quick for you. And I would love you to haul the thing up here! Love to meet up. I saw 2 sparks on the river getting gas yesterday. They were 2 up rentals from Saint John. 300 a day.. Pricey lol

As far as the Spyders go wait till Sep 23rd when they announce the new models because we expect a New Low Cost Model in the line up similar to the Spark idea this year. You always get your Best deal on Spyders in the fall as most years they offer a Big rebate and need to get rid of current inventory.

Mine fuel gauge did the exact same thing after picking it up from the dealer when I had the bars replaced the first time. The bars broke again the same day. It has been at the dealer ever since waiting on the recall to be released. I don't think they even looked at the fuel gauge yet

Ah interesting! So I'm not alone in the sensor problem.

Oh really? Good to know the Spyder owner inside info. Yeah when I dropped off the Sparks for the recall and fuel sensor after I left the Wife texts, "so did you order up a Spyder?" Commencing Research....a lower priced one ala Spark style would be nice. Can't believe new they are pushing $18k-$29K between the RS/ST to the RT.
