It doesn't work--found out the hard way. Could it be a burned out bulb? It doesn't come on--like the oil and temp lights do--when first turning the key on. How to test? Get a bulb at dealer--or any general motorcycle parts place?

A burned out bulb would sure be cheaper than $114.00 sensor unit dealer quoted me...

The sensors don't have a very good reliability record, that's for sure.

The parts catalogue doesn't show the bulbs as a seperate part, but that's not necessarily the case.

hm. you might try and pull the gauges apart, and check out the bulb... generally speaking, the low-fuel light just stays on all the time if the sensor dies.

(or at least that's how it went for me, and for all the other cases i've heard about.)

Depends on year, the older dashes don't. Tell us the year of the bike and whether it is carb or FI and we will tell you how to test the sensor.
