Oil pressure & Temp Gauge

I want to put a electrical oil pressure & temp gauge on

my dr650.

I know the service manual shows a place to mount a sensor

but it is in the middle towards the bottom of the case.

Isnt this a bad place to put a sensor ?? ( can be broken off by rocks )

is there another place to place the sensor that you know of ???

If you have a skidplate it shouldn't be an issue.

That spot is well protected by the skid plate, I am going to use it when I finally get around to install my Touratech IMO computer.

There are alternatives, one would be a sensor ring around the spark plug (like the Vapor has) and there are also banjo bolts (used on oil line) that are threaded for sensors.
