Big Rich said:Probably 100 little kids in China.....:
But the gear indicator feeds off of wires coming from the engine (pre-existing on the GR650) the same way as a neutral indicator light. Stock, the GR has 5 separate bulbs.... one for each gear. All I need to do is extend the factory wiring up to the cluster.
Ben: the fuel gauge works the same way. Well, kinda. There is a sending unit in the tank (looks like a float valve in the back of a toilet). I think the higher the float, the more / less resistance in the wiring to the fuel guage.
Big Rich said:Nope. Stock GR tank has a sending unit (so the wires were already in place) and the GS850 tank has a sending unit. It's a win-win deal for me.
If you search around on ebay for GS fuel tank sending units, there's always a couple on there. I know you want one for a GS500....
