Possibly, but then again smaller displacement motors spinnig at 7-8000 rpm in normal cruise mode suck down a lot of gas.

Back O/T.
Your light is probably your FI light. Reconnect the ground to your PC and see if it goes away.

My CBR600 used to get about 110 miles between fill ups riding semi agressively, less if I was really spinnig it up. I usually filled up with 1 line showing.

Also, another thing to consider; those fuel gauges are not very acurate.
Start making a mental note of how much gas you fill up with in relation to where the gauge was, typically I'd only add 3.5 gallons to the tank when the last light was on, so I knew I had a little more than a gallon left, which in reality was around a quarter tank left.

Posing gives you great Gas Mileage also increases your oil life and reduces the chance of you getting a speeding ticket

I haven't changed the gearing on my bike yet, but I did redo the exhast and intake adding a PCIII along the way. My milage sucked hard for about a week or two so I looked at the fuel map and realized that the range I was used to cruising in was actually sucking down a ton of fuel so I had to adjust my riding to stay in the most fuel effecient gear/rpm range. Now theres a huge difference (10-15mpg) and I still crank it wot as often as I feel like it.
