Not bad at all tahtye, can the app show the readings in Celsius ?

I have this oil temperature gauge, it works for me, good to know the bikes operating temperature as the weather changes.....

Yes it can. It also works on my Tiger. Or any vehicle that has an obd port.

Each supported PID is customizable by units (metric or imperial), range (min max ), type ( gauge, graph, digital) and color.
That’s great, what’s it like in real time...any jitters at all? Thanks for the information too...

Hello T120 Mick,
Nice oil temp gauge. Looks like it screws into the oil filler port,.... is it easy to remove and replace when adding oil?
Where did you find it? Don't care much for that oil filler plug that came as O.E.M. anyway, and would like to replace it.

I'll bet you a Tasmanian Devil you don't see too much variation of temperature.
I don't on my T120 when checking head temps with a handheld infrared thermo.


Thanks, Gary

Gary, you would be surprised, when I rode the first T120 down here, I left Far North Queensland and the oil temperature range was sitting in the 80 degree mark, arrival here and its flat out getting to 60 degrees, some days when the ambient temperature is around 0-5 degrees the bike oil temperature runs at 40, so you know it’s bloody cold.
Rode for a couple of hours yesterday, nothing above 60 degrees, but it’s getting warmer now.
Tassie devil, he can be your friend :smile2:
The oil gauge is screw in, same as the chrome plug that comes with the bike, mine was a German made gauge, I can dig it out (the link) as I posted it here a few weeks ago, it’s more expensive than the one posted by markg333.....

MarkG333 & T120Mick,

Thanks for your response, I'll probably order one from A & J Cycle. Hard to judge variations in operating temperatures using a handheld infrared thermometer. I'd gladly trade some of the the electronic stuff, like traction control for example, for temp and oil pressure gauges.
I've often wondered what the balance is between the liquid and air cooled functions.
