The gas gauge on my '84 GL1200 reads 1/4 tank less than what's in the tank. What might cause this?

It's a standard GL 1200. I thought it might be the voltage regulator, but my temp gauge works fine. 1 other thing, I can feel a tapping when I let the throttle off a little, at any speed. Someone suggested my universal joint might be going bad. Any "how to" articles on replacing that?
