You don't mention which one of your bikes has the problem. It is much easier to troubleshoot when the folks know what bike they are talking about.

Have you drained the tank to insure there is no foreign substance messing things up. Were the miles travelled on the tank that ran out about normal? My first guess is the fuel sending unit has got problem which could involve pulling the tank depending on the bike.

If you choose to do it yourself, it might be a wise move to get the service manual for assistance(www.helminc.com). Aldo consult You Tube for related videos and check the technical section of this site: click on the tab for "How to Articles" and search for the correct Wing and see what is there.

Also if you are talking about the 2013, is it still under warranty? Does it have the extended warranty? If either is true take it to the dealer to fix!
