    Has anyone ever added a traditional fuel gauge to the VTX 1800 c gas tank? I'm changing out my stock handlebars with 14" apes, adding 3 inch peg extenders as well as new pegs. I'm thinking about changing out the dummy lights on the tank and rewiring for something more digital. Any idea's...

    I'm sure it's been asked a thousand times but I can't find a straight forward answer to "what octane fuel" should I put in my 1800F? It's a stock bike so you'd think the answer would be easy to find. Even Honda can't agree so I'm reaching out to you guys. OK, before I get flamed..yes I should...
