My fuel gauge problems started while in Sturgis in aug 2010. I gassed up and for the first time, since I owned the bike, the gauge didn't move. About 10 miles down the road it finally started to adjust til finally it showed full. This was pretty much the routine for the rest of that trip and for the remainder of the riding season 2010.
In the spring of 2011....gauge finally stopped moving all together and laid there dead. so for 2011 I used the tripometer to approximate when I needed to fill up. worked ok...
Sooo...after researching these forums I saw how easy it was to replace sender unit. Ordered it and swapped it out yesterday....voila....gauge works again and I'm hoping problem solved..
thanks once again guys for sharing.
