    I have never had a problem finding neutral on my 2009 F650GS. However, I don't consider it to have a very smooth gearbox as the shifting between gears is kind of stiff and notchy, even after 48K...

    If I recall correctly, I think the fuel gauge of my F650GS starts to register after riding about 150 miles upon starting off with a full tank.
