  • No fuel light

    Since going pumpless my low fuel light won’t come on when needed. I ride with the petcock on on and get surprised when I have to switch over to reserve. Is this a symptom of going pumpless or do I have something else going on? It did come on before I removed the pump. 03 1600.
    thanks

    Did you cut the inlet tubes down on your petcock? That’s how most remedy your concern, or keep it on reserve.

      Hey Daveto, no I didn’t cut the tubes down.
      Thanks for the reply

    It's most likely your sending unit inside the tank.
    Does your low fuel light Ever come on?

      Hmmm... This has me scratching my head.
      Hopefully someone will offer a solution for you.
      There's a great bunch of guys here. They'll help you to figure it out.

    I would be surprised if it had anything to do with going pumpless. It didn't affect mine when I did it. Even when my fuel gauge isn't working (pretty much all the time lately) the low fuel light still works. I wish you the best of luck figuring it out. At least it's not something stopping you from riding.

        I'm a "I see the cup half full" kind of guy. Plus, I'm old school. I look in the tank if I need to check fuel. Even when my fuel gauge was working, it wasn't very accurate.

      It's a common symptom when going pumpless. especially if you ride a lot of hills. If you have to see the light then cutting the petcock feed will fix it.... or put the pump back on
      not all those who wander are lost......
