Hi All. Does anyone know if there should be 12v of current going to the wires which connect to the fuel gauge sender? I'm trying to figure out why the sender doesn't doesn't work. The gauge itself reacts healthily to 12v going through it fwhen connected directly to a battery and swings though to 'Full' (at which point I removed the power wire so as not to damage it). But there doesn't seem to be any power at the leads from the harness. Any ideas anyone? Thanks

The float acts as a ground, so no power through it to guage.

don't hook power to the gauge to test use a meter..set on ohms..move arm if ohms change = gauge works. hook meter to wires under the seat..on volts turn bike on..should read voltage, if not break somewhere.

I found 7v throught the wires that connect to the sender. I understand that this is correct as the voltage is reduced by the regulator under the left shelter. It must be my sender.....

Blimey... small world. I bought a sender on eBay and am hoping it actually works! If not, could I borrow yours to double check please?
