Thanks Toaneezy !!
It's just a cheap Chinese universal LCD Digital Motorcycle Speedo. Got it, too practice ... before cutting and messing with all the original wiring.
Well see, how the finished product ends up looking like. :)

Here's a link to one on Ebay

MET gauges comes with three wires on OEM gas gauge.
- Black (power)
- Blue (Gas)
- Yellow (I assume the empty gas light)

The aftermarket digital gauge only had one inlet (blue)
So, I've tried; just the blue ... gas meter just blinks.
Then, I tried; Blue and Yellow ... just blinks, too.

Any feedback would help - Thanks !!

That's awesome. I'm digging it. Question...did you use a stock Ruck rear brake cable or did you get a custom length?

Rear break cable is not the stock OEM length - it's a longer one

okay, so you only need the blue/white lead from the Metropolitan fuel sender. leave the white/yellow alone, and make sure that the black on the fuel sender gets 12v and the green goes to a ground. the gauge itself should have a resistance setting, it needs to be set to 510ohms.
