Like a regulated capacitor driven LED. The fuel light wasnt blinking ( like a turn indicator) but glowing and then dimming after a few seconds.

        This behaviour of the fuel light is nowhere to be found in the owners manual. The manual just says that the fuel light will be lit once the ike is carrying about 4 litres which happens to be its reserve.

        So the light dims and relights when the bike is approaching its reserve and once it hits the reserve it stays lit ?

        Anyone ?
        This behaviour is common in P220,or take that for any bike .The fuel inside is at a movement inside the tank and the sensors can't judge the exact level of fuel inside,hence the miscalculation.

            there is no sensor in tank its a float valve, its like a mechanical device it keeps on moving so you will never get accurate judgment, i guess in cars its a bit different. I agree with most ppl for indian version of Ninja on/off headlight option should be provided in India sun is more bright being tropical, however it will deffo help in Delhi winters...and for ppl concerned about bill of headlight do not worry you pay for fuel which is burned to charge the battery.

              Does running the headlight use more fuel?

                  may be, i really cannot comment as 12v battery won't need much charging it would be very minute amount to actually notice, but i have seen many car guys saying that. if it was too much charge then everybody with inverters at home would have got skyrocketing electricity bills. Let's see how battery fares in india conditions most of the cities are extreme in weather...

                        Alternator as it is runs even if you disconnect the battery. It can not affect the fuel consumption in any way possible.

                          The alternator is driven by the engine. More the load on the alternator, more is the load on the engine. More the load on the engine, more the fuel consumption. Simple physics!

                            Always on headlight should be mandatory for ALL two wheelers. Period. I recommend this for safety and visibility reasons even if you are riding a Discover. There is a reason why countries evolved in motorcycling around the planet have a law to this effect for ALL motorcycles and scooters and relatively fast two wheelers. It is not for you to see, it is for you to be seen. The bike's visibility increases and better seen on RVMs and by oncoming vehicles and pedestrians!
                            The Wheel was a great invention; Two Wheels with a Motor in between was even better!
