    hi guys, i know that this has been raised before, but has anyone recently purchased and used the harley brand lcd oil temp guage. I have one on order from my local dealer, nearly $180.00 here in Oz. I have a 103 2011 RoadKing. I know some riders has issues in the past but have these been resolved??? Thanks in advance

    I've got one on my '03 RKC. It's been there for over 15K miles (1.5 years). No problems. My guess is that they do not like to get too hot. I added fuel and a serious oil cooler before I added the temp guage/filler cap. All is well. She rarely gets hotter than 220. She used to go to 290 once in a while. That could take out electronics. No more.

    Enjoy,
    Rich P
