I'm just curious as to what the fuel gauge level sending unit resistance range is.  I was looking at VDO gauges and was wondering if any of them would be a direct replacement for the factory gauge.  The resistance range is the deciding factor.

The cheapest thing on a BMW is the nut that connects the handlebars to the seat.

Plug-n-play

There's also the same thing with a chrome rim (I have that with a matching chrome rim temp gauge on my K11LT)

So from the links you posted the range is 90-0 ohms.

Yes, 90-0 ohms. Kind of backwards compared to most fuel gauges but they work fine on K
 bikes.  I run the VDOs on 3 or 4 of my Ks.
