Question about Harley Davidson Motorcycles
I put in Techron fuel system cleaner, but had no results. Is there a simple way to make the gauge work? I guess this a common problem with v-rods.

Hi Anonymous, this has been a constant on going problem with V-Rods, I don't know why and apparently neither does Harley. According to all my research replacing the sending unit seems to have the best results. Good luck

That is a bit strange. Did the previous owner install stronger springs than the stock ones? Compare the effort to pull your clutch handle to what it takes on a new 125. Be sure you have clean 10w40 motor oil in the gearbox. No synthetics or special additives. Replace the rod and the lever assembly. The rod, lever and oil should eliminate the problem assuming the springs are stock.
Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer?

Testimonial: "Thanks, very helpful because you were right, stiffer springs were added."
SOURCE: replace connecting rod on crank
Very big job, you have to take the engine out of the bike and take it all apart making sure you remember where everything goes when it is time to put it back together, It maybe a better idea if you take it to a shop for fixing

unless adjustable pushrods have been installed you are in for major work and time. Sometimes you can turn the tubes back and forth a bit to reseat but if leaking bad, take it to a shop for repair.
There are emergency fixes using corks but not reccommended....
Take it to a pro
