Faulty Fuel Gauge Sender

not sure if this has been addressed yet or not, if so, I apologize.
I just got a '15 CB300F and on the ride home I unfortunately ran out of fuel. This was a shock to me since the fuel gauge read as full. After trying to restart a few times the gauge kept reading as full. After pushing the bike to the nearest gas station, I filled the tank with 3.3 gallons ( .1 shy of the total tank capacity from what I understand).
Bike started right up after and the gauge of course still read as full.

Anyone else have this issue or know of any solutions?

You thought you were getting 500mpg?

I would wait to see if it happens again, but I would zero the odometer and expect the needle to have dropped to half full or so after 100 miles, rather than risk running out again. It might have just stuck this one time. If it does it again, first port of call is the sender in the tank.

Is your bike new? If not new, is there any factory warranty remaining?
