adding coolant temp gauge help

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I had a spare digital rpm and temp gauge laying around, I have a sensor that screws in the engine head but not an inline one, today I went shopping and made one in PVC I'm just wondering if it will survive I have pics of the guage but I will put a picture of the home made sensor later tonight, I was thinking of placing it at the exit of the water from the engine and also what is the the temps it should run at or not exceed

I run a trail tech temp gauge, installed inline where water exists the engine.  I try to keep water temps 170-215 degrees.  Trail Tech has dummy lights built in, I have a light turn on when the bike is up to temp, and another that flashes when it's too hot.

I did install it finally and it works great dont know what i would of done without it! Definetly saved my engine from cold seizure!

I bought a T copper tube then screwed in an 1/8 reducer and then screwed the sensor ^_^
