If I'm not mistaken, the Husa you owned has a complete different layout than the model which the OP is speaking about. The FE390 is a 70degrees Husaberg, and therefore is very easy to work on.

Well...that explains...I've got the repair manual for the 2009 model, which hasn't got the fuel level sensor.
