There can be especially if you have a California model, I would suggest hooking them both up and then run the lines to there proper place, not sure which model you have but one is likely the drain for the gas cap area, if you don't hook that up you'll have gas dripping on your engine when its hot, probably not a good idea !

Gas gauge not working on 2007 kawasaki vulcan 1600 motorcycle


Forget the fuel gauge. Find out how far your bike will go on a tank of gas and reset your trip meter each time you refuel. When you have gone about 100 miles, fill up.
