K1100LT fuel pump noise

K Series - ::. .:: -
Just got back from the first decent trip on the LT. The fuel gauge basically works but tends to fluctuate wildly once below half full. The bigger issue is that the fuel pump begins to whine loudly once the fuel level drops. After several fills triggered by the onset of this whining I've only been able to get a maximum of 17 litres in the tank meaning that in theory there is another 6 litres unused (or another 50 odd miles which would be useful on the motorway as comfort is not an issue apart from the deafening whine!)

So is this normal? I seem to remember my old K100RS used to whine when very low on fuel. Is there a solution?
