Bike is "hiccuping" needles on tach & speedos shooting up & down. Gas light is popping on. Sometimes stalling out when stopped. It's an '02 w/ a Yosh slip-on. Would this be bad gas/watered down gas?

Make sure the battery connections are fully secure. Had a loose ground connection once cause some similar issues.

Kid Thunder,
Did you by chance experience a similar problem during full throttle? I am having an odd fuel injection issue as well on my 05 650s. The bike tends to stall when floored from a stop. Usually stalls in first, sometimes in second. I turn off the ignition and toggle the kill switch and then turn the ignition on... and it starts as usual. It is inconsistent. Perhaps we have the same problem?

+1 If the ignition system is not getting its full voltage it can act very sporadicly.
BTW run a volt test on the battery and it should be at 12.65 volts not 12. A fully charged battery is 12.65 and if it isn't charging all the way this could cause a problem
