I have a 06 V Star 1100 Silverado. Can anyone tell me if there is an aftermarket fuel gauge available for it?

I had to get used to that, I had no fuel guage, no reserve, just a yellow light that comes on when you have 15 miles of fumes left.

Got to know my trip button real well, and mileage based on speed.  Only ran out of gas once, but apparently it was enough.

  Thats crazy!  I would be in trouble without my reserve. {17}

This issue has always given me pause to think, What is wrong with Motorcycle manufacturers that they can't put fuel gauges on all of their bikes.
I mean they've only been in use on lawnmowers for a couple of decades or so. :)
