Default Fuel gauge help

So I bought this bike a few weeks ago and am changing a few things. One is the combo gauge Harley sells. The bike came with the HD master cylinder cover fuel gauge so I'd like to remove that as the new combo speedo has one built in. I'm guessing my bike also came with a fuel sending unit but the combo gauge instruction sheet (if I'm reading it correctly) says the MC gauge sender isn't compatible with the combo unit. If that's what they meant then I guess I'll disable the gauge on the combo unit. During setup the combo gauge won't read the tank size. Anyone disabled the MC gauge for a new combo unit and made it work? Thanks!!

By the way, that's not the correct level.. It's actually full. It flashes slowly so I need to figure out what's wrong with that 1st.

You might want to read the (somewhat negative) reviews at the HD site:
https://www.harley-davidson.com/stor...fuel-gauge-kit

Comment from there:
"Regardless of fuel level it causes my low fuel light to randomly flash and the segments on the gauge flash as well. It is incredibly inaccurate."
