Also normal. The gas gauge on these 900's is notorious. Mine reads empty (as in on 'E
right around 100 miles, yet the low fuel light won't come on until 200~225 miles! There is a mod to fix it. Looks easy enough but I'd just as soon ignore the gauge and use the light/trip odometer. The light is pretty well accurate. Figure you've got about a gallon left when the light comes on.

There's also a great video put together by one of our forum members;

It's a simple fix. I might do it one day. But; as I said, it just doesn't bother me. Lots of bikes don't even HAVE gas gauges.
The light is attached to a separate sensor, labeled the 'fuel reserve switch', which is a part of the fuel pump. That's why it seems to be accurate whereas the fuel gauge is not.
