    digital temp sensor gauge

    Guys, I installed a TTO temp gauge on my SHO and am trying to find the correct placement for the water temp sensor. I currently have it in the tubing coming from the thermostat but am only getting readings around 125f. I have the cooling setup like JD1 recommended and do not believe it is running this cold. I do not have GIO issues. Has anyone else added one of these and what temps are you getting? Also is there a better place for this to be placed?

    You need to know how hot the block is getting. The temp of the water exiting the thermostat is irrelevant

    What aftermarket gauge are you using to measure the block temps and where are you mounting the sensor?

    I would drill and tap the head somewhere in the middle section which is the hottest part of the engine, Julio...

    I wish yamaha would just do a boost, temp, and oil pressure gauges. Also my new fzs has a speedo out of a 90s ford truck wtf

    Not sure why either. 290hp supercharged 1.8 liter 4cly and my only damn gauges are tach, volts, hours, speed, and rpm? Oil pressure, water temp, boost should be standard.

    More gauges? No way. The only thing a ski needs is a fuel gauge and a warning buzzer. Not to mention, as inaccurate as all the stock gauges are anyway, any other gauge would be useless.

    Thanks guys. I will measure the block temps with a heat gun. Maybe I can come up with some sort of conversion table to correlate block temps to water temps.

    My gauge system (Digitron DT46K) can do RPM, CHT, EGT. I used it for CHT and RPM on my GPR cause it has 30 minute memory, but the CHT won't work on the DOHC setup. Didn't tell me water temps but I did know when it was hotter than "normal".

    I plan on getting the center gauge pod thing and going with a Prosport electric boost gauge and Wideband O2 in their premium series white pointer clear lens 52mm lineup. Their premium series have max recall function.

    I run the Motec M130 to moniter block temps. The stock block temp sensor is on the right rear of the engine block below the thermostat and the intake manifold.
