Sounds like its time for a canisterectomy!! If the wiring to the sender/sensor are ok ,then your gauge sender tube might be bent. canister gets clogged, tank colapses bends sender tube.

Well, a little more detail... the wiring harness fried... I repaired everything and routed the fuel filter outside while at it.....
So you're thinking it isn't electrical but physical .... as in the months the tank sat off the bike, the sending unit/ tube thingy got stuck.....
I could see that.
So are you suggesting that I remove the tank and..... replace the sending unit.
I haven't checked .... can this be done from the outside of the tank.... possibly while on the bike.... like I said, I haven't checked.

No need to remove the tank. sender unit is held in with six allen head bolts. disco the wire connection take out bolts and slide the sender up and out. on mine I just reshaped the tube ,that contains the float sender, so that the float would slide freely up and down . put it back together and all is well. good luck.
