    Bill, they are standard in the marine industry. We call them " Euro strips"

    They come in relatively long strips and you just cut what you need, stainless screws as well

    Chances are if you take the bike in for fuel strip warranty they will break something else on the bike and deny any responsibility.

    Thanks Mike,

    I like it.......Just ordered a few.

    This is clean and will be easy to change back IF they ever design a strip that works. Otherwise the gauge useless to me.....The odometer is the only way to go IMO. I had my strip replaced and it was shot again after one tankful. Im done...Just want the triangle to stop blinking

    Why don't the suppliers just 'pre-zap' the strips prior to assembly?

    I've fitted a 400mm stick type float sender unit with a separate 37mm dia digital gauge. It's a metal tube (stick) with magnetic sensors inside and a float that moves up and down to trigger the sensors. Empty is 10 Ohm. Full is 180 Ohm. It would be good to know the full to empty resistance range from a working OEM fuel strip.

    It might have a 2 MegOhm bias i.e. 2.0MO empty and 2.2MO full, but that would be too easy.
