is someone have done this :


install a T a the switch oil pressure and put a oil senser to a gauge (mechanical or best a electric and the pressure switch at he other end:

IT IS 1/8 BPS= .5mm les in diameter than 1/8 NPT maybe order a $10 T 1/8 BPS that i

will have only in 2 to 3 weeks.....the seller told me because special order

i did buy another npt T .......dont fit.:?

i dont know how you install the T without damage the tread.........

i dont want to scrap the engine bloc:watching:k........... and with electric sender with the

gauge

and the switch at each end of the T does it clear the block? the sender is not small

like the switch and the block is not FLAT near the hole. dont know when the T is install

what clearance there is.


maybe with a mechanical with tube..........

and there are 2 rubber hoses with cord shield that connect to a device at 1/2 of the hole........

i would like to see a picture of a electric and/or mechanical gauge...before i buy the

gauge.and the $10 T because i am not sure that the store will it take all that back.


mechanical =$26 electric: $95

have hard time to figure how all ends up.

if it is too difficult to put picture here:

i i have to do all this before getting bike out of the house not the garage.

so i dont want to lost 3 weeks of biking.

Franky, I installed an electric (Stewart Warner) oil pressure gauge. Expensive to be sure. I do not recommend it. Just use a mechanical gauge with the little nylon tube. Easier to install given the room at the oil pressure hole in the engine case. Do use the T because you also want the oil light to work. If you muck the threads up, use J B Weld to get it to hold. Works every time. Protect the nylon tube from heat and damage by running it through a rubber vac hose. Luck.

bps and .5 mm


The T and your fitting is 1/8 NPT , how did you insert your fitting because the presssure SW is 1/8 BPS tread and .5 mm smaller.

Thanks Tongue Tongue
The threads on my bike were already bunged up from a PO mounting an oil gauge on it. I just put the NPT pipe in it and J.B. Welded the fitting to make sure it wouldn't leak, Works fine.

OKKKKKKKKKKKK!!!!!!!!!!

btw where did you pass the tube :there is not much space? took up the fairing or.........?

Just snake it left from the sender and then up under the left fairing. Easy to do. My gauge is mounted in the lower fairing panel.
