Anyone disassemble their Vision to access the fuel pump/fuel level floats. Looking for walk thru of disassembly process and any recommendations on repair of fuel float. Dealing with a 2008 Vision. Thanks! Shop repair estimate is like $382 for part and 2-3hrs labor.

Take the panel in front of the windshield off, take the grill out, remove the right side front panel, remove the dash panel, remove the cables to the ignition.....or just use your mileage to read when to get gas!
I had the same problem with my 08, I put some Shell gas in my tank and my gas gauge started working again....go figure!?

I tried Seafoam because I figure it's moisture that is weighing down the float. Didn't work. Your Shell gas may have done the same at moisture removal from the float. Are there screws for these panels or do they just pull off? I have been using the mileage for the last month and that works, but with the LoFUEL flashing on, you can't even set the clock.

The only panels that just pull off is the speed'o bezel and the panel in front of the windshield, all the rest are held on by screws. If you know what you're doing it would probably take you 30 mins. to a one hour to get to the fuel pump, if you don't know what you're doing it's an all day job.
Be sure and take pictures with your phone as you remove screws and panels and you can use them for reassembly.
Personally I would try some Shell gas, I mean it's a lot of work cause you're going to find every time you get ready to remove something there's something in the way of removing that part. The whole front right side of the bike needs to come off to access the fuel pump...Don't get me worry though, you can do it but just be ready to scratch your head a lot!lol

I read where it took one guy around six hours to get all the panels on and off. He also said something about rotating the fuel pump when removing. I have more time than money, so just need to work up the nerve and get a few flakes on the ground so I don't want to be riding somewhere.

#1 pull front aluminum panel
#2 on back side of mirror is 10 mm bolt un screw it. Right above it is a silver 6 mm button head allen pull it.
#3 pull chrome gauge bezel.
#4 take all screws out of speaker cover and pull off.
#5 pull dash do the screw inside the glove box first. Then do the four silver 6 mm button head allens.
#6 tip dash to left and un-hook all wires.
#7 open gas door and un screw bolts.
#8 un screw bolts holding panel in place and pull gas cap. Put back on when panel is removed.

BEFORE you start any of this go to dealer and order ( 5413012 O-Ring ) you;ll need this new O-ring

Thanks Visionjohnny! Exactly what I was looking for! Now, is there anyone that has simply repaired the float without replacing the whole fuel pump assembly?

What is causing your float not to work? is it saturated or something? or is it an electrical problem?
I haven't narrowed it down specifically, but I believe the early design had a tendency to saturate, so that is my strong belief for the cause of the problem. Only had Vision for a month and the origianl owner only put 12,000 miles on it. Lot of sitting and saturating time.
