    Was wondering just how accurate the stock oil pressure gauge is on a Roadglide - rode several RG's and they all seam to give a little different readings while at the same rpm and or speed.

    I'm not as qualified to answer as most here, and I didn't stay in a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I am going to say that the stock oil pressure gauges are not very accurate. At least from my experience. (Or I should say from my husbands experience)

    If you use the search box at the top of the page, I'm sure you will find several threads on the subject. :s

    Its there to check like mood swings. if its 0 find out why, if it stays at 30 psi hot at idle again check. my 09, 15 psi hot idle, 32 hot cruising..

    Past experience has showed me the H D gauges are not real accurate, I have checked them against a Snap On master gauge and found them to be off by 10 lbs or more :D
