Air temperature gauge

Hi

on my trip now and find I would really like to know the air temperature (so I can be sure there is no chance of ice etc)

did buy a cheap item of ebay for 3 quid but it broke within 200 miles - surprised me given it was only a simple bi-metallic strip type

anyone fitted an add on temperature gauge that is reliable?

off topic, sorry

Hi Paul,
sorry, off topic, how your trip is going? Have you replaced the dead shock absorber?

I think I lost the link to your website and couldnt find it in your member details.

Why do I need a temperature gauge:




Those are radial stalagmites on the disc - more trendy than radial brake calipers!!

I tried copying the picture across but it was huge.

These are cheap (£5) and work a treat, with 2 sensors, one on the carb and one measuring air temp. It worked fine down to -36c. I packed up 1st....
