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.
It takes the temperature, and seems accurate, as I bought it to compare oil temp before and after I installed an oil cooler. I the dipstick isn't even close to being accurate though, as barely any oil is on the stick at checking temperatures. So I have to use the stock dipstick to check the level, then use this for temp. If I had to do it again I'd just get the HD temp dipstick instead. And yes, I did enter my year, make, model to ensure this would work.
