fuel gauge error
« on: August 07, 2016, 11:52:49 PM »

My bike is a 2009 Hyosung GT250 with a digital gauge. The fuel indicator is always flashing as if the bike has no fuel in it even though it is full.
Does anyone know what is causing this problem and how to fix it?

Yep, the fuel sender unit in the underside of your tank. First check that it's actually connected, your looking for a two pin plug under the rear of the tank LHS towards the shock I think off the top of my head.

If it's connected then you need to remove the unit (drain the tank obviously) and take it apart. It will have a brass contact that touches a coil of wire. It will no doubt be bent slightly and not touching them anymore. I have a photo on my website which I will attach shortly to aid you.

This happened to me on my 650, it showed me that I have fuel and then I got stranded. I just took it to the dealer and they said the floater got stuck, but that's all I've got for you!

On mine, the gauge starts to move when the tank is at 1/2 volume and if you don't heed the 1 bar flashing warning, you've got 5 mins before you're pushing.

I've seen them on ebay, but mine came with the bike.

Mine would flash when there is only last 2 ltrs of fuel left before i have to build my leg muscles. Memorized the milage in city and highway so weather it flashed or not i would simply top up..
