    i have a 00 gtxrfi and my gas gauge works maybe 10% of the time, the 90% of the time i get no bars on the gauge and the long beep every couple of minutes (VERY VERY ANNOYING). the very first case of doing this it gave me a low fuel warning and beeping but never again. so mine cannot be a fuse as fuses work or don't work, right???
    also my 00 xp gas gauge has never worked???

    check out the other thread for the newer style sender fix.
    have you tested the sender itself to see if the sender is bad?
    if the sender checks out good it could be in the wiring going to the gauges or electrical box the connections could have corrosion in them or a short somewhere

    Can this be the same problem that I have on a recently purchased 2000 RX? I also noticed(I think) that you did not replace the fuse. Any reason not to?

    fuel baffle float fix

    Thanks for the info, worked like a charm. Magnet fell out, I found it stuck insude tube. Reinstalled magnet and all works fine. '95 xp

    To avoid losing magnet

    If you always keep at least a 1/3 of a tank of fuel and dont run it way low,you wont be repairing your sending unit.I have found that the cause for the float coming out,is jumping ski with low fuel level the float slides up then slams down with no fuel to cushion it ,it knocks the btm stop out.Nothing that you guys didnt know already ,but it might keep a newbie from having to fix his in the first place.JMHO>Marvin

    Thanks for the "HOW TO" item. Worked great. Found that my float was now a sinker. Installed new float and it's good as new!!
