GL1500 Sending unit repaired

I just wanted to share this little fix for the fuel sending unit. I was working on my friend's bike and he told me the gas gauge wasn't working; always reading empty. I tested the wiring and gauge by grounding the one wire and the gauge moved to full so I took the sending unit out. Pulled the little metal cover off and found a broken solder joint. I soldered a wire across the two points, reinstalled and gauge is working now. Took all of 30 mins (not including pulling the bike apart). Hope this helps someone out.
