    i bought a oil dipstick with a temp gauge(genuine harley) for my wifes 07 deuce....

    it has popped out a couple of times as though the pressure in the tank is great enough to pop it!

    this occures after a riding temp around 190-200*...

    has anyone had this happen to them?

    and more importantly should we be concerned of some high pressure in the tank??

    any thoughts?

    Welcome to H-D Talking... This has been discussed several times. If I remember correctly the things that contribute to this happening is an over filled oil tank, and not wiping the oil off the rubber seal around the dip stick.
