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.

Check resistance of fuel sensor,connector should be under seat at rear of tank. If open sensor may be bad.Check the connector for good contact.Check with a good dealer about problem ,most will give you some help if you buy your parts from them.

Most likely your fuel level sender is stuck or faulty, remove from tank and check. check all electrical contacts for corrosion.
