    Anyone have an oil temp gauge on their airhead? I have an '89 R100GS. I'd like to be able to keep an eye on the oil temperature. I can't use the dipstick type analog gauge because I have the big HPN gas tank. I seached the airheads.org archive but didn't see any advice.

    Aerostitch has one here that looks pretty good.

    It works by replacing the oil drain plug. They have three sizes available: 12mm x 1.5, 14mm x 1.25 and 14mm x 1.50. any idea which, if any, of those would fit an airhead? I can measure the mm, but I don't have a pitch gauge.

    Thanks, Scott

    I personally wouldn't do it.

    Had a Luftmeister one on my (now in Massachusetts) '94 GS. The readings'll scare you! Dude at Aspen Motorrad in Flagstaff took it out and threatened to throw it far across the lot when I aksed him about the "high" temps...he GAVE me a brand new stocker. I sold the temp guage one on Ebay soon after.
