Question would this fit on my F4????

I was wondering if this would fit the F4.... I am to think that there would be some fairing modification involved. I am the kind that would like to look down and see the oil temp, and this looks like an easy way to do so.

If at first you don't succeed, use a hammer instead

Josh: I did the same thing to one of my Harleys. I thought I would really appreciate knowing. On the Harley, you couldn't ever see the temp reading without stopping and looking down thru splayed leg. Totally useless. I took it off after a couple of years. Think long and hard about this.

from what i could see its just a straight replacement for the plug, so yes should swap right in.

though a stright replacement for the plug i dont think you would be able to see it without a modification to the faring. Its a tight fit as it is and i know you cant add oil to the bike without taking the faring off....its too much of a squeeze to get the cap off

I wonder how tall the temp. guage is?? Diego.... help!!!

I do not need to take it off while I am riding, don't need to add oil to the bike either (unless I am doing an oil change) which the farings are off anyways.
I am not planning on checking the oil temp on the fly either..... it would be nice to check it at a stop light or after a hard ride on a hot day..... just to see how it changes in different weather..... more info can't hurt can it?

It's hard to judge by the pic, but it looks to be no more than 1 1/2" tall...if that is true, then it wouldn't require much cutting of the fairing at all.

Engine case-to-faring = Approx. 1 inch at the shortest point (bottom of plug).

Matty.... you do oil changes without taking off the fairings??

to be more specific, once it's in it'd fit under the fairings without any mods, however i don't know if you'd be able to get a good enough view at the top to read off the gage with the fairings on. and certainly don't think its worth risking ya paintjob to get a hole through to view it.

well, if you can figure out the fittings, make a five inch hose using oil pressure gauge line (you know, the kind that's used on an old car to read oil pressure), connect the two together and strap the gauge somewhere readable.

Time is a delusion. Lunchtime doubly so.

how much different should this be from the temp gauge on the dash? that's from the coolant temp, right? (just a guess, I kinda thought it was the oil temp, but seem to remember it was related to coolant).

Cool

It only makes a difference if you think oil and coolant are two different things.

So that excludes some Suzuki riders...

ok, but on some bikes, wouldn't it use the oil temp, like on an air-cooled bike (monster?). I know they have a temp gauge, must be measuring more than the time it takes to warm up....
