a buddy of mine just went and bought a 1998 xl 1200 yamaha.we brought it home since we got it at a good deal what we thought was a good deal.
my question is
when we start it up 3 secounds later the warning Fuel light start buzzing and flashing red.
we took it to the water and it didnt want to really move.like a bogg feeling it did.
i know that theres gas in it because we filled it up and we looked in the tank to make sure it was full...

why does this keep happeing ( Fuel warning and buzzing red lights)>?

how do i fix it?

what could it be thats making this do this?

and is there a way to reset the panel to see if it happens again?

please help we pretty much looked over everything but we didnt see anything out of place...
thank you!
