Fuel gauge

Has anyone attempted to install a fuel gauge? If so what was the result and what parts did you use?

I am really interested in this and was hoping Willie G would make one suitable for our bikes, but sadly NO. The Street range is growing popularity and it makes sense to homogenise the various offering so all bikes can benefit.


The lack of a fuel gauge on its own is not the biggest issue, but from a comfort perspective it would be helpful to know.

A lack of fuel gauge really doesn't bother me that much - in fact when I have had them on previous bikes I have found them to be a little unreliable.


I would be interested to know though if anyone has tested how far a 750 Street will travel from when the low fuel light flashes to when it actually runs out of fuel!


Any volunteers? lol

Well, it's a price point bike, so they would have to figure out something pretty inexpensive. I really mean cheap like the mechanical float the turns the dial in my lawn mower gauge.


You might want to keep an eye out for an aftermarket gauge built into the gas cap. I see some of those at J & P Cycles, but nothing that says it fits the Streets.

Please share photos and information on how it's hooked up.

if there is a solution other than changing the tank, I'm curious too... Meanwhile I put a probe in mine.

Fuel guage
Easy as
Went to local marine shop bought a tank sender modified it to fit check ohm resistance
Pull fuel pump out ( I’ll let you work out how to get sender to the fuel cap side of tank )

The sender has two wires one goes to earth on fuel pump the other goes too the
white wire which is connnected to the
factory yellow which is the fuel light
Easy as and it’s very accurate So much better than a stupid light.
I ride 3-4 hundred km a week end i need a guage
Any question ask away
