Hey
Has anyone ever tapped into the return line to feed an oil pressure gauge? I'm thinking I may try it.

Yep, if you go to 'Remote Oil Filter' thread on page 2, you will see my and few other results on this. My reason for fitting the gauge was concern over possible high return pressure after fitting a new SRM pump. I have a filter on the return line...

I thought there might be a little more discussion on this. Why would you need to know pressure going back to tank? How could the return pressure be too high? It seems pointless, but I'm never sure about anything...........maybe I've overlooked some aspect here.

And edit: is there enough pressure there to even register?

The return flow is so sporadic and full of air you will never get a meaningful oil pressure. I have had an SRM pump and a MAP Cycle return filter on for about 6 years, no problems. So have a lot of other people that post on here. Plus, Commando's used a factory fitted return line filter on later bikes and they have a similar style rotary gear oil pump. Also, tons of old Triumphs have return line filters. Me thinks this was a bit of cya by SRM in case someone fitted some odd ball restrictive filter. Stick with either the MAP Cycle type with the Trident filter or the Commando type kit and you will be fine. Find something else to worry about.

Everything will be alright in the end. If its not alright, its not the end.
