Isn't it amazing?
Even on a T595 or Gen 1 955 (mech speedo) is still very functional for Fuel Level, using the Tach only - to be honest, the basic install without the LCD gives excellent functionality, for Fuel Level (%), Actual Fuel Used or Actual Fuel Left, even without having a mileage recorder via an electronic speed sender.
The mpg and distance to empty are nice bonuses with the digital speed input model, but aren't exactly necessary.

Very nice!

The fuel sender on my Tiger has been pooping the bed progressively to the point where my low fuel light didn't come on and i ran out last week.

Do you think this could be made to work on an 05 Tiger (Sagem FI)?

From DEcosse's link, yes. With a digital speedo it can be 'full featured'. For those of us with a worm driven speedo an auxilliary input (countershaft sprocket) can be fabricated for MPG data.

Absolutely!
The only difference I can see would be the mileage counter - the Tiger has the 19" wheel, right?

Did you have to request one to be specially made to work with 3 cylinders?

Yes, you will have to state the model that you have so that you get a Triumph specific unit with the pre-established constants already But will not have to be 'specially made' - the scaling is already done, having been derived from my bike and will work 'out of the box'.

But even when installing the one 'calibrated' with the constant originally set-up for the SV (2 cylinder 650) it can be calibrated for whatever it is fitted to within one tank of gas.
It computes like this: every time the injector pulses, it measure the duration that it is open (it opens for different periods of time depending on how much fuel the map table tells it to deliver) - so what it does is set up a counter to calculate the total duration of time that the injector is open and this very accurately translates to volume of fuel;
so by starting with full tank, when you refill you input the fill volume and it correlates to the total duration of injector pulses and recalculates the constant i.e. the calibration factor.
But as said, now that I have already supplied the information, it will be there as starting condition for the Triumphs, so even that very first tank will be reasonably accurate (although can still be tweaked for your own bike by same method)
The miles recorded were also slightly off (165.5 on the Triumph vs 161.5 on the FuelBot over the course of one 'fill'), due to the slightly larger front tire on the Triumph; however that constant will also be updated on the Triumph unit so should align to your OEM odo.

Yep.

It'll cost about 80 Euro to get a new fuel sender unit and this looks better and more accurate for the same kind of money.
