2017 teryx4 le fuel gauge issues

So got a 2017 teryx4 le few weeks back and really enjoy it. 784 miles so far. The fuel gauge always flashes full or empty though. Here is what I have done/want to do:

I only use premium since it may sit for a week or two when I can ride. I check the wire harness connector, nothing burnt/bent, no rust or unusual discoloration. I cant really see the fuel gauge device inside the tank to see if the float is stuck. I plan on doing the fuel vent mod as mine is vented to the frame like older models. I am also unable to find a wire diagram. I am wondering what else you guys think I should do. I have not called the powersport places to see if it would qualify as a warranty claim. I did find a recall that was for many 2017 teryx/mule/teryx4 for fuel thing that cracks but when I type my vin is does not apply.

What else would you guys try/do before calling a local shop for possible warranty issue? Everything else seems to function and work great but the gauge is always flashing empty or reading full. I have shaken the thing hard and driven on bumpy roads hoping the float was stuck but no luck.

feedback appreciated on what to check/try next.


recall info for 2017s:

wondering if mine slipped through the cracks and is semi related to the fuel gauge? Also if its related. there is MASSIVE vacuum OR pressure in the fuel tank. When I take the cap off huge air sound but I not sure how to see if its vapor pressure or vacuum etc.

The recall was for the black steel ring that holds the fuel pump/fuel gauge assembly in the tank. I have personally never seen or heard of the condition you are describing, but it does sound electrical to me. I would think a stuck float would give you the same reading all the time. Maybe check the connector on the back of the meter?

Wont lie I haven't made any progress. Called the place I bought it from and they said drop it off anytime at least 30 minutes before they close and they'll check it out and see if its warranty related etc. I have my wifes friend coming this Wednesday from the East Coast so probably not this weekend, but next I'll drop it off at the Kawasaki dealer and I will update when they let me know. Sorry for the delay. I always hatge finding a thread and then never learning what the issue was.

Im not keen on taking the dash apart and from checking the connectors on everything I can get by hand, no corrosion, burnt contacts/pins, and no rubbed through spots on any wiring I can. I did score a pdf service manual from a 2018 teryx and it seems if its not a bad ground they usually have to replace the whole fuel pump because the float is built into the assembly unit. Im praying its not something I have to pay for outside a small warranty fee or something.

Will update soon as I can.
