That is most certainly a mechanical setup. Notice it mentions "brass adapter". The 2" SunPro are $10 gauges and not what I would put out in the weather. I am not a fan of the location but if that is what people want...

Here is a pic of the gauge I use and a pic of how I mounted the gauge readout on the bike with double stick tape. Stays right there at over 130 mph. I tried to mount the sender on a tee with the idiot light sender but it would not fit so I did away with the idiot light.

here is a picture of a t I got from the hardware store, I haven't put it in yet cuz they ordered a new t for me one has 1/8 then the others are 1/4 so I don't have to use the reducer and free up some space. It fit in the space without having it threaded in so I should gain some room once it gets threaded in. I will post pics when I'm done. Yeah I got one of those cheap sunpro ones, for the price if it only last for a couple years that's fine. I'm going to mount it in the horn cover. I would like to find some braided line for it instead of the plastic tubing that came with it for the oil.

Check out http://www.westach.com/ for small dual gauges. I have run the dual amp/volt in the dash of my FXR for 25 years and it is a quality product and has never ever failed and has maintained accuracy.

I've seen alot of these gauges around. Mostly in aircraft which would go to show their quality. I'm just not a big fan of them.

It is up and running.
Seeing on their website it is possible to get it in Celsius reading..
It is 2" = 52mm.

Mine is still right where it has been since 2007 with no issues at all and still works like a champ.

What did you use as a mounting pod?

That's the one I thought it was, they have it in a silver chromish one too.
