Re: Fuel gauge question
Filler tube on the gas station pump. You are an inch away from the sending unit tube if you angle the nozzle wrong.
Here is the low fuel set procedure:
1. Empty the tank and fill it with 1 gallon (or your desired quantity).
2. Make sure you have access to the diagnostic port of the Motorcycle and identify pin 3 and pin 4.
3. Turn the ignition on.
4. On the diagnostic port, short pin 3 (brown/black) and pin 4 (brown) for two seconds. (Make sure you have the CORRECT pins - you don't want to short Battery voltage to GROUND by mistake).
5. The tank reserve light should flash quickly. When the flashing ends, the calibration is complete.
This is what the sender looks like. The float slides inside the tube and even a small dent can hang it up.
