    Quick question, regarding engine temps. I hooked up the temp sensor to the engine case, to get a ballpark temp reading. Using this technique any idea what I should be looking for or rather when the oil is likely getting too hot?

    thanks josh

    As quick questions go, this is a tough one Josh. Over the years, I have installed two temp indicators. I have the Vapor oil sensor installed in the drain plug and also have an oven thermometer placed into the bottom gap on the back rear of the cylinder head. In both instances what I was looking for was a 'day to day reference' my expectation was to pretty much see the same numbers. Anything out of the ordinary ment conditions had to be out of the ordinary, or something was wrong.



    One the lower backside of the cylinder the number that I generally see in the Summer is ( I believe) 300 degrees. Now with the oil temp, since I have a cooler, it generally reads 248. If it seems inclined to get hotter (Summer day and long climb) I will turn on the fan. With the increased air flow on the cylinder my max oil temp seems to be 260. Without the cooler and fan, on a long climb during the Summer, it would seem likely to me, that oil temps would creep up around 300. Hope this helps. Gerry











    Take care my Friend.........

    For cylinder head temperatures: 350-375F with a max of 425F.
    The TW200 may be slow but the Earth is patient.

    ^ I would really like to get one of these ^



    Does anyone know how I can get one? I love this thing and I cant find it ANYWHERE? They should be stock on our TWs.

    My guess is this is a european only model. I have never seen it before, maybe one of the tw-historians can weigh in?

    Good look with the search, that is a pretty sweet tach/control center. Way better than the ones we have.imo

    Lookls like the standard Yamaha cable-driven tach from early XT's, etc. which won't work on our bikes So either the pic isn't of a TW dash or I'm curious, too.



    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    Powdercoated '87 frame, extended swingarm, YZ fork legs, ATV tire, 14/55, XT350 tank, spliced quick-release seat, disc brake conversion, beeg headlight, beeger rack, Lizrdcooler, Lizrdventz and bunch of other stuff all covered in invisible ink.

    Maybe he modded it to work with a TW or something, or maybe it is a XT, I'm sure the temps would be around the same for both bikes which means it would be worth posting.



    but anyway, damn right it's a nice dash! ours sucks so much in comparison, is it so much to ask to have all the cool gauges?



    at least my CB919 has all the gauges it kicks assssssssss
