  • Dreaded Code 8

    When i bought my 01 R*. On my way home the gas guage started wigging out. Code 8 started flashing. Good thing I keep track of my mileage. Did my best GTS and stumbled across the RSC. Good news was in the research all I have to do is replace the sending unit. So I ordered one... Bad news is its on back order. Should be here on 9/15...Fingers crossed. Any advice on the removal/install would be appreciated.

    Mine has been doing the same for nine months. I just monitor the mileage. Haven’t ordered one yet. Only advice I’ve heard is don’t over torque the mounting bolts.

      Pretty straight forward install. remove old, install new.

          Afterwards, use the Techron Complete fuel treatment periodically... Unlike the regular Techron, the complete formula provides elements that help the silver soldering Yamaha uses in the sweep element of the fuel sending unit resist erosion from the formula of modern gasoline. Also, use Seafoam additive in compliance of suggestions made on this forum. The first time I used that stuff in my '07 Chevy Colorado, I thought that somehow, a new gear had been added to my truck!
