I just installed the oil-pressure gauge kit from Triples Unlimited, $123 direct.
A nicely made piece of kit. Installation took about an hour, and no leaks.
Showed 90psi on startup, can't wait to see what it shows hot.

Sorry officer, I couldn't take my attention off the road long enough to glance at my speedometer, I really had no idea that I was doing 90 in a 55.
If your peripheral vision is not good enough to see that a needle is pointing where it should without staring at the gauge you shouldn't be driving a car, much less a bike.
I get more worried by a flashing idiot light, with an unknown sender, than by a gauge which actually shows me a value. Guess I should've just kept riding the A65 showing 25psi on the gauge instead of rebuilding it. That reading just can't be right, it's still running isn't it?!

No speedo's on my Hornet or T150. Both have O/P gauges and LED Voltron meters, cops will tell me how fast I was going. 76-Airhead has an O/P gauge where the sending unit failed/was. Being an old fart I still go by the 10-lbs x 1000 rpm. They call them idiot lites for a reason.

I have the one with speedo/tach bracket, very well made.


When given the choice between two evils I picked the one I haven't tried before
