After looking at the book. The gauge will read almost the same, but will travel its sweep slower as the tank is a little fatter almost all the way from top to bottom.Wouldn't the sender need to be changed?
Did you do the install yourself? If so, how did it go?I have the new tank from unlimited engineering, was wondering if any one else does too. If so, is your gauge showing the old tank mileage? Mine is, it is telling me that I'm low at the 3 gallon mark, is there a way to reset that? :banghead:
I had a friend put the tank in, change both breather tubes and move the turn signals to the forks....he charged me for 18 hours of work. He did say that the instructions helped alot, and some of the pictures helped because the description was kind of way off base. He also said that he had to carve at some of the top of the tank to get it to fit. He looked up the UE web site, and I guess they are addressing the issue.Did you do the install yourself? If so, how did it go?
Keep in mind that to do 200 miles on 5 gallons means you've got to get a solid 40 mpg. While I've done 40+ under ideal conditions already, 35-38 mpg is my "safe average", so I feel I'm pushing the envelope at anything past 175 miles.I filled up at 180 miles, just to give myself a baseline to go off of. I put in 4.3 gallons, so I figured I could easily go to 200 miles....at 199 miles, 3 miles from home, I ran out of gas. To me, this doesn't make sense.
:them: The key is following UE's instructions to the letter, step by step. I have been running this tank now for years, and I'm extremely happy that Robin (UE's owner) decided to make it. You will never be able to pump the tank completely dry; the flat bottom and arrangement of the pump pick up precludes it. You will, however, be able to pump pretty close to 5 gallons.I extended my sending unit per the UE instructions and have never had any issues with the mileage. Its simple and straight forward if you follow their instructions.
