on, although I know the light works. Does anyone know how the low fuel

    feul sensor does not work but feul light work if tested apart

  • Anonymous Mar 25, 2014

    I removed my tank to have it painted. After installing my tank with no fuel in it the fuel warning light did not come on. I checked continuity through the sensor and it has good continuity. I do have ignition voltage to the instrument cluster.

Hi,

On most bikes, the fuel level sensor is inside the tank and basically is a dampened float. The entire assembly could be accessed beneath the tank and would be connected by a single connector with two terminals. This pair of wire would then go to the instrumentation/cluster to trigger the fuel level gauge or in your case low level sensor. Often the connector would become loose or the terminals corroded. The sensor inside the tank could be tested with a continuity tester (DVM/VOM)

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    I have taken bike apart & reassembled it however I can't see where the fuel tank sensor connects to instrumentation wiring.

3. Fuel tank bottom contaminated with ethanol sludge, dirt, water, rust, etc.
4. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
5. Fouled spark plugs.
6. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the choke.

18. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil or plug between ignition sensor and ECM module.
19. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting check for spark leakage in the dark, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.

21. Faulty neutral, clutch, kickstand safety switch.
22. Faulty fuel pump or fuse or relay.
23. A stuck bent or burnt valve.
