Hi Bruce

I can't locate much more info on this fault specifically, but it indicates an issue with the fuel level sensor. Something to try before checking the hardware would be to reset your adaptations, if it remains problematic after this, you'll need to check the sensor itself - wiring could also have been affected after the replacement, so a good check would be the connections there as well.

kind regards
Ruan

Hello

I asked my dealer for assistance.
Here is now the error description for A2E9 Fuel Sensor.

Fault description                                 The fuel level sensor signal is outside the permissible value range.

Your bike does not have a film type sensor so ignore that stuff.

My guess is that you either have a wiring problem (open or short) or that in re-inserting the fuel pump assembly the float got snagged on something bringing it out or range or even disconnected at the wiper contact.
