Sounds like you have a ground fault. I once had a car with a faulty ground wire on the headlight, when I put high beam on the speedo would jump to 170km/h and the indicators would glow dimly. Sure sounds like a similar ground fault to me, check all the ground straps, from the headlight or anywhere else you can think of.

I think you have two problems.
First a venting issue in the tank. Pull your dash and you will see a vent tube coming from the tank. Make sure the elbow is clear and allowing air to flow. Then track the hose to under the seat. There you will find a thing called a rollover valve. These malfunction all the time. Remove it and put a fuel filter in its place or just a connector to next the two tubes again.
The wost thing with this rollover valve is that your tank can implode from the negative pressure built up. I have seen this happen.
This guys are experts in all things RoadStar and have helped me a great deal so check in with them as well. http://www.maxairengineering.com/
If you fuel gauge is not working right after this you need to check your fuel sending unit. It can be cleaned so post a follow up here for more on that.

Youre gauge is controlled by a plunger in the fuel tank which is attached to the sensor and the fuel gauge. it sounds like when the plunger goes down half way its either getting stuck down lower then it should. Needs replacing. Any mechanic can do this install for you.
