  • Sender unit assembly, fuel meter

    My old fuel meter shit the bed a couple of years ago, now its just a continual flashing yellow light. I figured I'd replace the sending unit and noticed a new part number superseding the old part number so my guess is yamaha had done a redesigned sending unit. Has anyone installed this new one? I'm wondering if this new one will actually last longer than the old unit? I haven't gone by the fuel meter but rather the odometer for my fuel stops but that dam yellow flashing light drives me crazy.

    I just ordered the same part number that shows on the Yamaha website for my 2008. Bought one on eBay for about 65 bucks or you can get them from partzilla.

      5VN 85752-31 from partzilla ( as they ship to UK ) 2004 RS, comes with a rubber seal, after fitting you may think it doesn't work as it sits on empty, take the bike for a ride it comes right after a few miles, i don't no why this happens

        I believe the fuel meter is made to react slowly so the gauge isn't constantly bouncing as the fuel sloshes around in the tank. My original fuel gauge reacted the same way before it totally shit the bed
