Thumbs down fuel gauge is crazy

Okay so here is the problem that i've noticed so far, I went and put gas in my bike and filled it almost to the top like always but when I got back on my bike I notice that my gas gauge wasn't all the way to the top, so I though that I didn't fill it all the way up. Then I got home and shut it off and went to move it again later in the day and the gauge said that it was empty so i turned the bike off and right back on. Now it says I have a full tank so okay maybe it's in my head.. but today on the way home I noticed that my gauge said that it had a half of a tank but now i'm watching the gauge and it keeps moving from half to empty on bar at a time slowly so I get home and look in my tank and it's 3/4 of the way full..so do I need a new gauge or sending unit or not even worry about it??:headscrat:headscrat

I had to have my fuel pump mechanism removed. I'm not sure if the guage is connected to it or anything though...

I have this problem too. When I fill my tank the guage doesn't read full. The readout is completely inaccurate. And to think, I bought a honda motorcycle because I assumed it would be reliable like their cars...

If it helps....



Most bikes don't have a gas gauge like the 600RR, just the reserve gas light.
Mine has worked fine since day one but I also measure the miles per tank, just in case.

If anything... I'm sure the float is the thing that is having a problem...
