I believe this is dealt with elsewhere.  IIRC it's caused by a blocked air hole in the cap which creates a vacuum in the tank.  If you open the cap you should hear a hiss as the air goes in. 
Do a word search on "fuel gauge".
For the modern man who lives in the city, riding a bike might be one of the only ways to escape the humdrum monotony. To take off and ride. To be both at one with nature and one with the bike. To feel masculine. Adam Piggott
