Interesting Fuel light

Sorry for all these trouble threads i've been making. I've been rebuilding my bike from almost the ground up and a lot of it is new territory.

I finally got my subframe, fuel tank, fuel pump, battery and fuses all hooked up tonight. finally feels like i'm making some headway.

But now i have a new problem. after my gauge turns on my fuel injection doesn't start and after a few moments my fuel gauge begins an animation i've never seen before. It looks like this...



lol. I made an animation because my camera isn't working at the moment.
If you have any ideas on what it may be then help meh! :)

Thanks,
Kyler

open circuit in wire harness or fuel level sensor.
if the wire harness and fuel level sensor are good, replace the combination meter printed circuit board.

^taken from 07 service manual^
i imagine its the same fault for all years RR's tho

the combination meter printed circuit board, is that the board inside the fuel pump?

no, i think thats the actual gauge.
it says to check the fuel pump first along w/ the wiring, then move on to the gauge cluster.

Yea i noticed the fuel level sensor came loose pretty easily.

It's very possible it came unplugged when i shoved the tank back in. I'll check it tomorrow and keep ya up to date.

I'm having the same problem. Which plug is the fuel sensor? I removed my fairings and this started to happen.
