Fuel light flashes 8 times 4 Months ago  
2003 road star carbureted 1600 still running fuel pump. So I had my first long bike trip yesterday (800km)concerned with fuel stops so I filled the tank more than I ever have before. Started with half tank and gauge read half tank, filled Into the filler neck ( I normally stop below neck). My gauge reads empty and fuel light flashes 8 times, once I get down to 3/4 tank the gauge jumps up to 3/4 and flashing stops. Every time someone got gas on our trip I also topped off and light flashed until 3/4 again all day long. I suspect my sending unit won't read full? My manual is on my toolbox at work so I am unable to check manual till tomorrow. Any help you can offer is great. I searched forum and checked battery is tight and green connector under tank is clean and connection seems good. I believe the float in tank does float because 3/4 to empty the gauge reads normal..
