Overall I'm happy with the fit, finish, style and function of this oil plug/temp gauge. My only issue is that the glass collects condensation on the inside on humid days. No big deal, but figured I should point it out.
Oil plug temperature gauge was a great purchase. Im a numbers guy so to be able to see what my temperature is was a must. It also adds a better look then the stock oil gauge and a lot of people looking at the bike complement it. Fits great
exact fit replacement for my 03 xl883c . harley dealer has a higher priced one that has the harley logo. if you are ok with made in japan in very small lettering this one will save you a few bucks and works well. my local harley dealer has a hard time stocking parts like this one and will have to order it for you.
I went to the dealer to find a oil plug temp gauge and they told me they didn't make a temp gauge for my year of FLSTF, so I looked at Dennis Kirk and found it cheaper, shipping was fast, very pleased with the gauge.
i measured it from the bottom of the rubber grommet and its 2 and 1/2 inches long... I took a pic of my old one and the new gauge with a tape measure, but guess I can't post it here... Also, my bike is custom, so I just needed a good seal...my old one eventually would spew when the oil got hot, and it was shorter by 1/8 inch... I like this one...no problems
