Just installed a temp guage kit and it went without a hitch.
I was wondering how hard is the electric fuel guage install?
Will it be more accurate than the tank cap indicator?
Thanks in advance!

Okay. So it sounds like an electric guage won't be any more accurate but at least I'll be able to read it at night at speed.
So how hard is the job?
Do I have to take the tank apart or what?

I installed an electric gas gauge on my 2001 Ski-Doo MXz 700. It was pretty simple. Here is the steps (roughly):
1. Remove seat.
2. Siphon gas out of tank.
3. Cut hole out in the gas tank. On my sled the holes were imprinted on the tank.
4. Clean out the gas tank with a rag if anything drop into it. Remember, anything dropped in the gas tank will be sucked into your engine.
5. Cut out a piece of gasket sealant and use the glue made for gas tanks. It is expensive but, it is worth it.
6. Install the six screws that come with the kit.
7. Wire it up
8. Put seat back
That is what I remember from when I installed my electronic gas gauge last summer. I think having the gas gauge is worth it because it is easy to see when driving compared to looking at the cap. One major disadvantage to having the electronic gas gauge is you have to have your sled running to know how much gas is left. However, I think it was a good buy.

Thanks for the "how-to".
I think that may sound more like a Summer job.
