Fuel Gauge Acting Up. Please Help!

Ok so my fuel gauge on my bike is acting crazy! So when i fill up, then the gauge shows a full tank. (Everything is good) then after some riding, one bar goes down due to it no longer being full (also normal) but after that first bar goes down, it just freezes and stays at the same reading regardless of how much gas i have. What could this be? Any help is HIGHLY appreciated!

It COULD be the float inside your tank

Agree with Sameh90... Probably the floater is stuck...

You can open the filler cap and with a flashˇlight check the inside... The buoy(floater) is visible, you can juggle it with a wire or similar... Maybe you can get it unstuck without having to remove the tank...

TIP: Don't use a lighter to check the inside of the tank... Ka boom!

Having the same problem, I'll have to try the lighter method. I mean wire method.

If that doesn't fix it, its pretty simple to check the sensor with a multimeter.

I just replaced my fuel pump so i saw all of this first hand recently. If you take the plastic tank protector off, pull the tank. On the bottom of the tank is the main gas feed. You can take that off or it may be easier to disconnect it from the rail. After that its just 6 10mm bolts hold the entire fuel pump assembly complete with float into the tank. Be careful taking it out as you dont want to bend the float left or right. You can mess the electronic reader up and it wont read right again. Good luck. Overall not so difficult to check the float.
