Oil temp gauge.



Can anyone tell me if it’s possible to get an oil temperature gauge that replaces the oil filler/dipstick on an xt600. I’ve heard of them but can’t seem to find them any were.

I noticed this item on Ebay the other day.
http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...tem=2405281649

They appear in the Wunderlich catelogue, and I see there is a different model for my 3AJ to the Ebay item.

I am sure there must be other solutions, and more readily available in the UK?

Also German company KEDO (www.kedo.com) sells dipstick meters; art.no. 91037 for XT500/550/600/660 at 43,90 EUR. For Ténéré '86- art.no. 91496 at 49,90 (under side plastic thanks to the location of oil tank).

KEDO is also highly recommended for just about any XT parts imaginable!
