My idiot light works but the trip gauge is broke and I like to know how many miles I have on the tank even with the light.

Searches brought up a solution using a bicycle trip computer and Radio Shack rare earth magnets on the rotor. Cheap and works great, email me if you want to know specifics.

Check out my post about cheap odometer gears. I too had the same issues and felt getting a bike computer was, well, not me.

I have a source on a four set of odometer gears, I just need to get more buyers interested to hit the price point.
