It's also time to head for the gas dock, when they get down to 1/4 tank on the straight bottoms

I put a pair of these in the Bullet a few years ago and they've held up well.

looks the same as mine with the exception of 2 wires .mine has 3 wires .looking at the instructions to install it seems these have to be cut to fit or am i wrong ?? that being the case you should be able to make it so you dont run out of fuel @ 1/4 of a tank or is there another adjustment .my sender appears to have 2 small screws on top 1 says full other says empty

set the sending units up so when the gauge reads empty you have a quarter tank, that way you keep from picking crap off bottom of tank and you know you have a little reserve when you should have bein at the fuel dock already.
