The fuel gauge is held on by an o-ring. Rock the fuel gage side to side while pulling up on it. Be careful as the wires are very short and if you pull too hard, you'll damage the wires when the cap comes off. Down inside the cavity in the fuel tank, you see five or so small screws. If you remove these screws you can work the gauge sending unit out. Raise the gauge sending unit while rotating it in a clockwise direction according to the manual but I found that this is not entirely true. Work the sending unit out the best way you can without bending the arm. I've never taken one of these gauges out of a Softail but I have an a Dyna. You cannot put a fuel cap in the fuel gauge cavity. It is designed for the gauge only.

Good Luck
Steve

Faulty Fuel Pump, and run an injection cleaner into your gas tank (you can buy a bottle at your local parts shop) then get the fuel filters checked or replaced.

Chances are contaminated gas clogged your fuel works.

For a quick fix: Open the gas cap at 1/4 tank to relieve the vacuum. it will make your pump work less.
