2011 dyna fuel gauge sensor
Hello everyone, new guy with some questions about a new to him bike. It's a 2011 Dyne wide glide, 10,3xx miles (give or take 100). First question is, is the tank 4.7 gallons? If so, what controls the fuel gauge? Is it a sensor of some sort? I ask cause I have read its a 4.7 gallon tank with the fuel light comes on at .9 gallons left. Took a ride one day, light came on at approx 150 miles, I noticed on the range it was a 1 miles when I put gas in it, but it only took 3.3 gallons???? Doesn't seem right to me? Is the sensor bad? What lead me to full curiosity was I was riding with my dad who has a 03 road king, same size tank, took 3.1 gallons on a ride this pass weekend but his light never came on, mine did, approx 140 miles. We both started the ride on a full tank.
Nothing to do with the fuel gauge, but just thought of it. There is a ticking noise on the top end, Bike runs fine and oil level is good as well, normal for this bike.
