I should know this
« on: December 20, 2014, 01:52:36 am »
Still have a few electric gremlins running through my bike.  My question (and I should know this!)  is should the fuel gauge return to "E" with the bike turned off?

Nope it stays put. I wasn't 100% positive so I just checked.

Does unplugging the tank lead cause the needle to go to zero? If so intermittent gauge flat lining may indicate a bad connector, dunno. Could also be a float getting stuck when filling an empty tank although that I`ve never seen. Want me to go pull the tank and unplug for verification?

My '86 stays at the fuel level, although I have the "resistor mod".

Mine has always stayed right where it was when I shut the bike off.  Appears to be normal.
