Question about 2009 Harley Davidson FLHX Street Glide
Don't know if it's the same routine, but here's the troubleshooting for a 2009 Road King:
Disconnect harness from fuel gauge
Turn ignition switch to IGN. Check for voltage at terminal 1 of fuel gauge connector.
If no voltage, repair the break.
If voltage present, disconnect harness connector from speedometer.
Check for continuity between terminal 9 of speedometer connector and terminal 2 of fuel gauge connector.
If no continuity, repair the break
If there is continuity, check resistance to ground on yellow/white wire in speedometer connector.
If less then 10 Ohms, go to item #1
If more then 10 Ohms, go to item #2
Disconnect the fuel pump/level sending connector from the sender.
Check for continuity between terminal "A" of the connector and ground.
If continuity is present, locate and repair short to ground.
If continuity is not present, replace the fuel level sender.
Greater then 10 Ohms resistance:
Reconnect fuel gauge connector to the gauge.
Turn ignition switch to IGN.
Check for voltage on terminal "9" of the speedometer connector.
If voltage is present, replace the speedometer.
If voltage is not present, replace the fuel gauge.
Hope this helps!

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.

Sounds like a loose connection to me. On my FXDWG, the gauge has a rubber ring around it that holds it into the fuel tank. Carefully rock the gauge side to side while gently pulling up on it. Do not twist the gauge and be careful not to pull upwards too hard. The wires under the gauge are relatively short. The gauge will be in your hand and the sending unit is in the tank, Check all wires for a good connection.
I don't know of a test for the gauge. We used to test gauges in automobiles by taking the sending unit wire loose and then grounding it. When the wire is loose, the gauge will read full scale in one direction, when the wire is grounded, the gauge will read full scale in the other direction. Testing the sending unit is more difficult as it's basically a rheostat or variable resistor. You would have to remove the unit from the tank. The sending unit has a float on the end of a long crooked rod. It can be a real treat trying to get the sending unit out of the tank without bending the rod. If you bend the rod, the gauge will not read correctly even if everything else is right.
I'd check the wiring connections first. For what it's worth, these gauges are not known for their reliablity and quite often fail. Since your bike is fuel injected, you really need though. Mine doesn't work anymore and I use my trip meter to tell when I need fuel. Between 150 & 200 miles, I look for a gas station.

If you have the spark plugs out of the engine, you will not see a spark on them when you crank the engine over. The engine is equipped with a compression sensor. No compression, no spark. Try installing another set of spark plugs and the rotate the engine over with a set in the wires.
Not getting any fuel is a tough one. Since I don't know much about the fuel injected, computer controlled models, the first thing I could tell you to do is to check to see if your fuel pump is working. With your ear press to the fuel tank, turn the switch on after it's been sitting a while. You should be able to hear the fuel pump run for just a few seconds. I don't know what to tell you to listen for though. Some pumps make a whirring type sound others a clicking type sound. If you know someone else that owns a fuel injected bike, try it on their bike and see if you can hear anything. That's the best I can do. Good Luck!

If you will contact me directly at email@example.com I'll send you a complete trouble shooting guide to a fuel gauge. It's for Dyna Wide Glide but it should be the same gauge just mounted a bit different. Don't forget to remind me of what you need.
