My fuel gauge stuck on full last weekend while on a camping trip, first time in 8500 miles.
Yesterday I removed the float tube from the right side of the tank, popped the cap from the bottom and removed the float.
It had what looked like a residue on it, the float is while (off-white) but it looked stained, I'm guessing buildup from Ethanol (?), so I took a light sanding pad and cleaned it up. Now the float slides much more freely. After about two starts the gauge is reading accurate again. Time will tell.
Overall this was a one hour fix. Easy.

You're welcome.
If it happens again & you sand down the edge, put it all back together and test it by holding it upside down and tapping the top cap down on a solid surface. You should hear the float slide back when you turn it right side up. Repeat a few times to make sure it's unstuck.
It does take a bit of time for the computer to start reading the fuel level correctly after the fix.
BTW, this part is under warranty, KTM will replace it for free...

Rode 200 miles on Saturday, filled up once and no sticking!
When I pulled back into the garage my odometer read exactly 9000.
