After the low fuel light comes on a few times the bike will (at a stop) idle lower and lower until it stalls. I restart it and it's fine again.

Peering into the tank I can clearly see there's fuel in there, but I still headed to servo anyways filling up no more than 14.5L. The tank capacity is 17L. 2.5L of fuel reamining isn't THAT low.

Is this a Panigale quirk?

This is just normal riding in straight line city streets.

I don't believe that's a Panigale quirk. My bike has never stalled except for the two times I forgot the kickstand was still down.

Some considerations:
- Are there significant altitude changes on the path that you ride?
- How does it idle when the fuel light isn't on? If it's similar then maybe there needs to be an update to the ECU's fuel mapping (this is well outside of my area of expertise).

No significant altitude changes, and idle is the same until it decides to idle lower and lower until it stalls. Restart it and idle is the same as before plus I can ride like normal, but not game to see how much further it can go, so I just head to the nearest petrol station hhhaha

Might have to chat with the dealer then hey.

Yes your absolutely right!! But I’m not sure it’s when the gas light is on?? I’ve had this happen twice when I pull in the clutch and it drops to idle??? Like gearing down or turning a corner…
I think it’s something more???
