You are watching: Fuel gauge gas cap for honda shadow


Hi,I just got a Shadow Aero 750 and managed to run out of gas. Does anyone know if there are any aftermarket gas gaps with Fuel Gauges? I could only find them for Harley"s. Thanks.

Refueling about every 100 miles is a good idea in any case. It gives you a chance to re-hydrate (or dehydrate if you have to drain the bladder :lol: ), and just take a break from riding to re-clear your head, shake things out a bit, and rest. It"ll help to keep you sharp, especially on those long rides...

I have an 84 VT750. I was told that I have no reserve tank. I only have an "on & off switch". Is this true? If i do, can you tell me where to find it?

: Yes, it"s true. My 84 VT700 only has an on/off switch. It"s on the right side (as you sit on the bike) on the bottom half of the plastic side cover.For reference, I"ve found that when cruising along, I can do about 150 miles safely on my bike before I end up on the side of the road.

Don"t you have a "Low Fuel" idiot light on your bike? If so, that would be your indicator when you need to refill the tank. It should be set so that you have at least 1/2 to 3/4 tank of gas left in the tank. This will get you about 20-40 miles...depending on your riding style. Joe
A lot of the old Shadow idiot lights don"t work anymore. For instance, the sensor on mine is bad (I"m pretty sure). I"ve run the bike out of gas (intentionally to check the sensor) without it coming on, yet when the bike first turns on, that light still flashes with the rest on the dash to show that it"s "good" (or at least the bulb isn"t burnt out).I haven"t got around to buying a new sensor to throw on. It just hasn"t been that much of an issue for me since I usually pull over every 100 miles to fill up anyway as my riding buddies usually are starting to sputter at 100.

84 Shadows have a primary tank and a second reserve tank under it. The idiot light is supposed to come on when the primary tank is empty. Mine doesn"t work either. TBH it would be pretty simple to cut off the primary and reserve tanks from each other, run each individually to a petcock that can handle 2 inputs, and run it that way. It"d be a lot of work just to know if you"re low on gas.... Come to think of it, that way I"d never have to look for 5/8" fuel line again; and I wouldn"t have to improvise a fuel source to sync carbs. This is sounding better and better! =p
