  • fuel sending unit

    When riding my 2008 fuel injected Roadstar, the fuel gauge and idiot light are inconsistent. About 3/4 of the time everything works fine, but about one-fourth of the time the fuel gauge needle will drop down to empty and the idiot light will either come on or start blinking 8 times. can the fuel sending unit be cleaned and reinstalled or does it just need to be replaced?

    Yes and yes. They can be cleaned and reinstalled - that is if they are like the units prior to 2008. Personally I have a 2005. I've replaced mine twice which isn't too bad for 87,000+ miles.

    I did clean and reinstall the first one that went bad, but it didn't last very long after that. Maybe I was too rough with it....

        It can be taken apart and cleaned i used an ear swab and some toulene just make sure the spring clip that holds the float arm goes back on tight or the float falls off and you'll be doing it again like me. Anyway 6 weeks later and it still working ok. I did order a new one That's sitting on the shelf waiting for it crap out again, which I'm sure will happen in the not too distant future
