Fuel Gauge Gone Crazy?!?!

Postby Backer76 » July 25th, 2013, 8:34 am

Hey all!!!

Just putting a quick shout out there to see if I can get any leads as to what the problem is here.

Riding an '07 Boulevard C50 and the fuel gauge has 5 bars on the display. When starting up the bike it will show what the tank actually has in it. Then as I start down the road, within a mile or two it begins dropping bars off until it gets to the last one and then it just sits there and flashes. Doesn't seem to effect the way the bike runs, but is extremely annoying!!!

Any thoughts on a possible fix?

Thanks in advance!!!

Not sure how to cure that, you may need to replace the sensor & float. It's not too hard to remove from the tank. If you do that you'll see it's kinda vulnerable to bending etc and hard to remember how it goes back in. Somebody might have removed it and not put it back properly, it's a little tricky.
