It could be that there might be something in your tank that is blocking fuel flow. Does your bike have a fuel filter? If the bike is old, have you run something like SeaFoam through the fuel tank to help clean out gunk and tarnish?

You say that you found plenty of gas in the tank. what does that mean? How many gallons did it take to fill it back up? Seems to me, 190 miles is near the limit of a 400.
I get 200 on the 650, but always when I hit 3 bars make sure I am 50 away from a service station
