Fuel indicator light

Hi. I have a 1999 yamaha R6 and the fuel light does not turn on when i get low on gas. Ran out because of it. The light bulb still works, as when i removed the tank for other maintnance, the light stayed on. Any ideas?

Re: Fuel indicator light

sounds like the thermo sensor in the tank may have gone bad. they're about $55. it works by detecting the temp of the fuel.

Re: Fuel indicator light

yes, that's it. if you're going to buy a used one at least buy new gaskets.
you could try to clean the ground wire on yours first.
