    My fuel sending unit ('04 R1150RT) is this float that moves the rheostat.

    That is just for the lo fuel light on the RT's.
    The sender is further down the Fiche.

    this is for the RID fuel level on the right top of tank... on the RT. That connector pigtail plugs into fuel pump plate

    I learned something new today, today wasn't a total waste...

    Thanks guys. I'll check mine. My fuel gauge never reaches "full" any longer. Fill gas to the top, and
    it still shows two bars down. A mild irritant, as I always use the trip odo as my fuel gauge.

    For what it's worth, I seem to fixed my RID gauge problem. I disconnected the main fuel tank plug and cleaned it up with contact cleaner then applied dielectric grease. This seemed to help a little. I then added Techron to the fuel tank and refilled it. I put 1/2 a bottle in, 8 oz. After running about 178 miles everything seems to working properly. It is also running a bit better.
