I've wondered if any of those harley style temp gauges with work with a dip stick would work on the SV. Anyone ever heard of that? Don't need one but would like to have the information. Seems like the simplest of installs if one would work.

Thanks

I guess I'm wondering why? do you have a tendancy to flog the engine before it's fully warm ? other than that, temp is really unnecessary information, if you overheat, the temp light will come on.

the dipstick thing would tell you the oil temperature and not really be comparable say, to the water tmeperature on a 2nd gen SV

I am really just wondering how much variation there is in temp, and it would be nice to have something other than an idiot light. The gauges are cheap enough and the install would be simple. Just thought it would be a nice, easy mod.

Daytona makes an auxiliary digital temp gauge - comes complete with its own sender.
Will read in F or C

Really, both of these are too complex for me. I guess I should just see if a HD dipstick will fit in the SV filler cap.

Thanks
