I am sure he will get my PM wherever he is.
I believe the are Brass not Copper
Tried several tanks of Seafoam, still not working correctly.
My fuel gauge (LED lights use same resistor sending unit as analog gauge) is acting up a little too. Seafoam sounds a little risky, so I've decided to add Brasso to my next tank.I actually have an 07 CD that is doing this. Except it has a miond of its own at times. Once time going down the road I actually watched the fuel gauge go back up to full. (never knew you could make gas go into your tank while going down the road) Mine will stick... then un stick... I use to work in Auto Parts over 10 years ago and I can remember when we first got Seafoam in. It was new to the area. Someone put their Oil Solution in and it hand grenaded the 454 ( guess it cleaned it out too good ) So I know the stuff cleans real well (bad thing was I was the one that sold the can... and sold it to the family farm so i was stuck between a rock and a hard place on this one.... blame was going back and forth... but anyhow) They make a good product. I know my bike seems to be doing the same as the Pre 07's....Guess I will try it and we will see.
Harley designed the part and showing them a good fix rather than them being able to sell you a whole new sending unit is not in their game plan. They stopped listening to customers and employees regarding issues like this right after the 100th. They'd already made their money.This is a great post that makes a lot of sense. Have you considered sending this to Harley? They may be unaware of how the parts work that they purchase to put into thier bikes.
Read the instructions for the Fuel Cap Remover/Installer in the attached pdf file. You will get the idea.This might be a dumb question, but ihave disconected the plug off the fuel guage sender, but I cant work out how to get the dam thing out. Help please......
No....Is my fuel gauge the same as the one on earlier models? I haven't taken it apart yet, just asking before leaping.
p.s. Seafoam has worked great in all my stuff. gas engines 2/4 stroke, diesel, lawnmower, atv, tractor, truck, corvette, motorcycle all with no problems. This is the first fix I try when I have a fuel problem.
