Question about 2002 Harley Davidson FXDL Dyna Low Rider
My fuel indicator shows about half of what is actually in the tank. Took the float out and re installed. Still not right.

Hi Anonymous, you could have a faulty sending unit or guage, there could be a problem with your wiring. On models with the fuel gauge posing as a left hand fuel cap the gauge is a press fit do not try to unscrew it, simply ample force lift up in a rocking motion to remove gauge. Disconnect wires to the gauge and with a set of positive and negative jumpers from the battery connect the positive jumper and flash the negative, gauge should peg full, if not replace gauge. With a test light check for power to the sending unit, then remove the sending unit and manually operate the float arm slowly with the correct wiring hooked up to the fuel gauge and sending unit and the ignition on, the gauge should respond accordingly if not replace the float arm assembly.

Check the ground wire for the guage..sounds like a grounding problem...hey some of us use the tripmeter/odometer to guage our fuel...so do'nt worry about this too much.......Good Luck to you friend....Tim

You problem could be the gauge or the float. Simply because the float moves does not mean it's sending the correct signal to the gauge. If you will contact me directly as firstname.lastname@example.org, I will send you information on how the gauge works and how to check it. Since you didn't mention what year and model bike, my information is probably for an earlier model but the principle of operation is still the same. I think it will help you determine what and where the problem is.
