Does 2005 xl883l have a fuel gauge of any sort? It appears to have a fuel light. Never seen it come on. Where is the sensor or gauge how does it work and how may I check it. If not what is the fuel light for?
No gauge. As far as light,If carbed no, fuel injected yes.
Fuel pump in tank of injected has sensor when you're down to a gallon of fuel cause running pump dry burns it up. Carb has petcock switch to reserve and find a gas station soon
The 2005 883l has a 3.3 gal tank. Depending on how you ride, that can go from 90 to about 120 miles between fillings. Last 1/2 gal is reserve. My stock 2005 883l gets about 50-55 mpg at 55-60 mph, but on the interstate at 70-80 mph about 33 mpg!
I put a 4.5 gal tank from a 1200c on mine, because I travel alot, and the extra miles are great.
