well i must say, what a joke this has been, i have apparently fixed the problem by the looks of it and my sending unit that i ordered hasn't even came in the mail yet, that could of been of been money i spent elsewhere but oh well. Anyways like i stated above i disconnected the negative battery terminal to reset the ECU, that didn't work. I then took the tank off and made sure the plug under the tank was plugged in correctly which it was. Then i continued to remove the sending unit from the tank to inspect it. Everything looked fine but i was out of options and decided to go on ebay to purchase a new one hoping that would fix the problem. Well tonight i was installing my flush mounts. And disconnected the plug going into the Gauge/Tach/Speedo display so i could remove the front fairing. Once i got my new signals installed i plugged everything back in and turned on the ignition to make sure my flush mounts were working properly. While doing this i also noticed my fuel gauge was now reading that i had half a tank of fuel and now scrolling like it was previously. Needless to say i don't really understand this because in order for this to make sense, A)The plug wasn't plugged in all the way, but i'm not sure how that would make sense considering my speedo, my tach, my signals and everything else was working fine accept my fuel gauge.
B)When disconnecting the plug it isolated the Display panel from receiving any information from anywhere such as the ECU and cleared any memory that may have been stored in the Display Circuit board. But i would of figured when i disconnected the negative terminal on the battery that it would of reset everything.
So really neither of those suggestions really make any sense to me, but thats what seems to have worked for me.
