2018 rc390. 10k Kms. Float for fuel gauge floating like a turd in a toilet. Arm visible in tank...Of course read Empty.
So I took the unit out. Tank was grotty; containing brown particles and the float has a 3/8th hole through the middle with no visible means of attachment; looks like it dissolved. The arm has a tiny washer sliding around on it.
Anyone else seen this ?
Just found pictures of what this actually looks like and you can see the tiny washer that holds the float on to the arm... slid right thru the float.
Good thing it's Opening Day tomorrow so no hurry.
