I installed the Steppenwolf fix about 5 years and 100,000 miles ago and have not had a failure since.

Before you break it all down, try using the Sea Foam remedy! Anytime my gauge starts to act up, I add Sea Foam and that takes care of it. In your case you may need to use it for several fill ups. It'll clean your whole fuel system....

If and when you tear things apart, remember to order a new fuel tank gasket (it's essentially a whompin' big o-ring). They deform and aren't reusable.

Guess I was lucky as my '06R has never had this problem. I also think it's one of the most accurate fuel gauges I've ever had on a bike as well.

My gasket was reusable. Don't torque it down too tight and tighten them evenly as you would a wheel on a car.

2003 Anniversary with 10K miles. Count me in with a non-functional gauge. I'd fix it if i could just get the top off the fuel tank. Plastic fins break easily. Errghh!
