Started a thread as you recommended "Hoonatic Ty Rides Australia" with more tales and pics to come.

Cheers for your words of experience and encouragement and if I don't see ya out and about on the tracks first, I'll drop by with a few coldies at yours.
Gday Ty

Hey Phil,

I'm back on the road again after my 5 week swing out of Darwin on my ship. Hooked up with my mate Hydro on his DR650.

Shit mate, you didn't warn me that every servo in the N.T. had a bar!!! Certainly makes progress slower having a drinking partner that needs no encouragement to wash out the dust and keep the humidity at bay...

At Threeways and heading south to that big red Boondie. Lovin the life mate.

Catch up soon fella.

At least we have a sensible speed limit so you can make up lost time. Also no loss of licence between 05 and 08 just an on the spot fine.

Fitted the fue gauge sender unit in the Safari tank, I got 417 km before the light came on and it took 24.7 ltrs to refill probly had about 6-7 ltrs left so I reckon its time to fill soon after the light comes on so there is enough fuel left to cool and lubricate fuel pump.

I think it depends a bit who drills the holes for the sender it would only need to be 1mm or so different to give quite a variation. I think mine came on at 2 bars. mine holds about 31.7 when empty. Just carry a little fuel and keep going next time I reckon yours would have been close to coming on.

fuel gauge

Has any one had issues with the fuel gauge with the stock tank?
I had to put the battery on charge the other day and now the fuel gauge doesn't register at all. Searching the forums finds others that say anything from a shake of the tank through to riding for a day and it starts working again.
Just wondering what others have experienced?

P.s. I still can't ride the bike for a little while yet.
