Fuel Light Sv1000n 2007 TrailTech

I have changed the original dials on my k7 for an aftermarket Trail Tech Vapor unit. Managed to get everything working except the fuel light indicator. Basically it's just 2 wires to a bulb that fits round the dial. My bike has the 2 stage where it flashes when low and goes solid when really low, it also has the load resistor in the tail Section. I've managed to get everything working through the original loom so the red white wire is the flashing low indicator at the loom I believe and this is where I have attached one side of the bulb. On the other side of the bulb if I attach to ground wire, bulb comes on where tank is empty or full. If I start bike, bulb stays on, if I disconnect pump/sensor connector at tank, bulb stays on. I then tried negative side of bulb to a positive connection.. Bulb stays off. Can anyone help?

I am NOT an electrical guy, but, i will say that the thermistor unit in the tank is only there to say "yes or no", it has no
variable output, so, if your dash unit is looking for a certain resistance value as a minimum or maximum, and the
value coming from the tank sensor is outside of that, then formula sh1t is gonna be the result....

Someone on here will have a clue or two more than i ....

One owner..... 300,000kms and counting... yes, that much..........
