Just starting to notice that when I fuel up my gauge only goes to 3/4. I fueled tonight gauge showing 1/4 and I only put in 2 gallons. Seems to work ok other than that, no lights flashing or anything. Could this be my fuel sending unit starting to fail? 2003 1600 road star.

Yup, they're prone to fail. There's an eraser fix that works but usually doesn't last. Mine hasn't worked in years, but at less than $20 to fill up, and run to reserve then find a fueling station, it's not that inconvenient.

Yes I know but I'm one of those that likes to keep everything working like new. Always wanted a fuel gauge on a bike, now I have one its not showing the proper level. Thanks.

I replaced my sending unit this weekend. Took 45 min tops and it cost me less than $80 shipped. That included new petcock seal and valve packing.
