not talking about the ratio of tach vs speedometer, those are mechanically linked and fixed.



you made it sound like the tach will not change vs the actual GPS speed. and it will, it has to.
the tach is linked to the tranny output shaft via the gearsets.


the diameter of the tire is going to change that ratio.

Sorry I didn't mean it to sound that way, I apologize sincerely and have edited the word speed to speedometer, is that good enough?

Trust me, I do know how it works.

Seems like both of you are saying the same thing. If the bike is slower than the speedometer at say 3K RPM then with a taller tire at the same RPM/speedometer the bike is going a bit faster or closer to the speedometer reading. Isn't it????

Yes it is. John has the idea somehow that I have a different understanding of it.

Wow what a wealth of information from people on this site you guys are awesome I have learned a lot from y'all Thank you all for all the help.



I had about 120 miles on it at 1/2 tank I just didn't want what happened when I was bring it home to happen again and was getting nervous so I stopped and filled it up. I gonna wait until I'm closer to 200 miles before I fill up next time and see if the gauge goes below 1/4 . Who knows maybe I got lucky and it unstuck itself......... Nah I would never be that lucky.



Oh okay that makes sense then I thought it was like my 1500 and read off the front wheel. I'll check the GPS vs speedometer Thanks guys



By the way what a big difference between the 1500 and 1800 I'm having to learn how to ride all over again or it seems like it but I am lovin the 1800

Okay Well I filled up this morning gauge showed 1/4 tank it had 182.9 miles sense fill up it took 4.7 gallons so it should have had a little less than 2 gallons left in the tank. If I'm thinking right the gauge should have been setting close to empty with what was left in the tank. Do you know if you can buy just the sending unit or does the fuel pump come with it? I need to figure out which one of the sending units is bad first though

See post #12. Obviously it's the lower one on the pump unit.

Okay I finally got the time to replace the fuel pump and it's still the same thing. It will not read lower than 1/4 tank I had 225 miles on it and it was still sitting on 1/4 tank and the low fuel light never came on. When I filled up it took 5.7 gallons. I guess I can try replace the other float. Is that the one that works the low fuel light? I wouldn't think it would be the fuel gauge cause it will go to empty when I turn the key off. I just thought of something else I don't remember if the low fuel light comes on when I turn the key to on. I'll check that this afternoon when I leave work. If it don't and the other float works the low fuel light that may be the problem?
