  • Static fuel quantity gauge

    I can't find the post now but some one posted a link to a company (I think it's in Eastern Europe) that sells a fuel gauge that works off the weight of the fuel in the fuel line to indicate fuel quantity. I went to the site, they offer 2 gauges a conventional gauge (it looks like a Balkamp gauge from a tractor made in the '50s) and a LED progressive bar gauge. They ask that you contact them if your bike isn't listed on the "compatible with these bikes" list. I did so and they responded with a positive, my bike can use their gauge; GREAT! I asked for a price for a complete kit (utilizing the LED bar graph gauge) to include shipping and please, show the price in American$ as I didn't (and still don't) know what country the product is located in. Well they responded with the parts list (that took 2 emails but as of now I do not have a price so the hell with it. I have written 5 times and don't yet have the info i need to order it. I'm moving on.

    Why in the hell would you do something that complicated and convoluted on a roadstar with a very simple gas gauge system. Fuel sending unit and float is about $68 on eBay. And extremely easy to replace. So what would be the benefit of doing this type of fuel gauge?

      Father PB has a sure fire old school fuel gauge that has been known to work. The wiring is simple and never fails. Set trip odometer when you run it down, look into that hole in the top of the tank and make an estimation of how much fuel you have left using the SWAG method. On the carbonated bikes you still have a reserve. Most of my bikes had a trip odometer and a fuel reserve, no gauge.
