digital fuel guage issue

Postby jgg1961 » Mon Feb 01, 2016 11:56 am



Hey guys I have a question and can't find any Info about it in the forums...I have a 85' gl1200 LTD I bought last year and it runs great but it has a issue with the fuel guage....it reads full when I top it off but after a little while it will read empty but it's still nearly full....I suspect a faulty sending unit but I can't seem to locate it on the fuel tank and I'm having a hard time finding a replacement for it. Can anyone help me out with some info for this....thanks for any help anyone can offer and ride safe my friends

Should be on top rear of gas tank.You most likely will have to take the seat off to see it. There is most likely a lock ring with some "dog ears" on it. Use a screwdriver or similar to tap the ring lose. un hook the sender plug first. They can be cleaned up some. You wont find a new one....unless someone has one hoard up somewhere.
