I have been sick of riding with the fuel gauge sensor working and then not working. Mostly now, it doesn’t work.

I ordered the new part from Ducati Omaha and after a few weeks it is finally here. I will post my progress as I go along with all parts numbers.

I need a few days to gather some more tools before I start.

Stay tuned!

Thanks oBars.

I just need to get some type of syphon to empty the gas out of the tank. Not sure if the tank needs to come off or if the work can be completed with the tank swiveled up. Thoughts?

:) Grazie!

No need to take fully off. Just lift it to the max allowed angle. Key holder should be removed and all hoses and wire connectors should be disconnected from the tank

I just replaced mine, but I was doing the desmo service so I took the tank completely off. With the tank off, I propped it up so all the fuel pooled in the end with the cutout for the key. Being under 1/4 tank made this all easier. However, I haven't verified that the new one actually works.

It's not the sensor. It's the canbus programme. Anyway, it's an issue on most modern bikes, my triumph does the same as my SS. Canbus Canbus Canbus. Tank sensor carries a lower priority code than other inputs, for example the crank sensor carries quite a high priority code. So the fuel level always takes the back seat code... blah blah blah.
