    Hi all. I just finished my first build, and I'm already thinking of mods I want to perform to make it better. You can check it out in the galleries.

    I was wondering if anyone has installed a reliable fuel gauge on their motorized bike. I'm thinking this would be extremely useful for me, instead of being informed by my engine suddenly stopping.

    I heard from a guy who works on motorcycles that gauges usually stop working after a while because of vibrations from the engine.

    I'm thinking of our John Deere garden tractor when I was growing up. The cap had a clear center, and there was a cork float that, as it moved up or down, twisted a spiral twist strip of steel which had the fuel level 'pointer' attached to it, inside the clear section of the lid.

    That would be great same as an old outboard tank.
