Fuel gauge messed up
2005 FLTRi with 72k+/-
Fuel gauge was always "sluggish" at first crank. Now the gauge reads FULL when I fill the tank, but after 50 miles, it reads empty, and after 60 miles the "low fuel light" comes on.
Lately.... depending in how I ride... the fuel gauge seems to work again, when there's about 1.5 gallons left in the tank
Any "easy fixes"? or must look ats, to check? Section 9.4 of my service maual has a good view of the REMOVAL, and REPLACEMENT of the unit.... but no "trouble shooting" check point.
Yeah.. I can start replacing parts left and right..... but that ain't fixing the problem, and can become expensive, it the problem, is NOT in what I replace
I re-set the trip each time I fuel up (it's worked for me for 40 years), and I'm fairly anal about fueling the bike, so running out isn't likely to happen
