I made it. It's the same one someone posted several hundred posts ago.
Thermometer is from HF. I used a 20mm bolt, cut down, and drilled through the center. Prong of the gauge is mounted in epoxy...used existing O-ring from stock dipstick....does not leak at all.

I was thinking battery out of the box. Putting a frame support from the two holes where the battery holder went.

It's not new....someone else here came up with it...works really good though, and much less expensive than the XR's one...plus it's digital, easy to read.

It can't hurt. And Spud's point is well taken, too; less hammering, I would have to agree

Between the oil temp and CHT, the CHT is the better indicator for imminent overheating

yup.....if someone could come up with a really high quality temp dipstick it`d sell well.

There is one on fleabay that is really decent quality........with an oil filled temp guage......but it`s in Celcuis...and most people want Farenheit...
I emailed them to see if they could get Farenheit ones and they said they would look into it.......it`s been a year,so i guess not

As for the XR`s Only one......if it fogs up just stick it in the oven at 230 or about 20 minutes........put something in front of the dial to catch the pieces though it`ll heat up the outer ring....and the internal pressure will force it apart when it gets loose enough......then reinstall the glass,seal,and outer ring,it just pushes together.........

I wish Vanpelt999 would get his low oil flow light mod up and selling.......i care more about oil flow than temperature....still think Honda should have put an oil light on these bikes..

COME ON DANNY.........you could sell these for a couple hundred bucks or so

Here`s what i`d like to see MIKE make..hint,hint...............

Instead of removing the battery box.........make/design a new one..that would hold the smaller battery towards the front,,,,,and make it also hold a really small air compressor for tire inflation in it too..you could actually make the box a little bigger out of alluminum to hold a battery,air comp,a spare tube and short tire levers.....

Or toss all that out and put the guts out of a 12v cooler in there and i could keep my beer cold in there

This is an easer way. Just drill OEM plug along side the stick:

is there any clear lines that we could put from the frame to the cover?

or an inline sender that can be put into the pressurized oil line? not sure what the requirememnts would be, maybe just the ID and CFM?

haha just kidding; that's a super alternative.
Too bad bwalsh lost his dipper, though; but he could do the same with the right bolt
