Question about 2006 Harley Davidson FXDBI Street Bob
I took my gas tank off my 06 HD street bob. When I put it backon and plugged everything up my gas gauge read empty. I topped it off and it still read empty. I checked the plug connections, fuses, wires everything that i could think of. Any suggestios would be awesome. Thanx.
The circuit for a fuel gauge is: battery positive through the gauge resistor to the sending unit to the fuel tank(sheet metal) to the chassis to the battery negative. If you didn't remove the sending unit the most likely problem is the fuel tank is not grounded to the frame. Scrape some paint at the rear mounting bolt where you can't see it and re-tighten the bolt. If you removed the sending unit, check the cork gasket. There should be a staple in it that is the connection to the sheet metal. No kidding.

Check t see if you are getting power to the fuse on both sides you may need to run a jump wire to make both sides get power
