I want to check the fuel sender wires under the tank but there's a black plastic cap over it. I tried to pry it but stopped before breaking something. I checked in repair manual and there's nothing specific.

How does this plastic cap do come off?

If you figure it out, post it. My gauge worked when I bought my '94D2 but quit a couple months ago. Wires are are hooked up with a good connection but I didn't go any further. Be a winter thing. I just re-fuel every 130 - 150 miles.

Claude...it's just a cover. It will come off with just a little persuasion. Just pry carefully

and evenly around the edge. There is nothing attached to it except the drain hose.

OldZX11Rider...Odds are that the sending unit is corroded from the water and

alcohol in the fuel. I rebuilt the tank on my '93D (at great expense) two years ago and

replaced EVERYTHING except the tank itself. I was surprised to see the poor

condition of the sending unit and all the rubber gaskets/hoses. Alcohol and water in

the fuel slowly eat them up. Good luck.

Finally, my gauge was workin bad simply because the electrical connector (hidden under the plastic cap) was unconnected. Probably happened when the hanging connector catched something when I was moving the tank around last fall. Wish all the fixes are that easy...
