I got my gauge and matching sender from Marlin - I use a thread adapter to fit it into the stock brown sensor location and it's been fine:



The M14 x 1.5 on the right is for the temp sensor. I've not had any problems - it sits at 80C until you sit idle for a while, at around 85C the fan kicks in and keeps it there.

I had more problems with the original radiator/fan combo getting too hot. I'm using a big ali radiator and 16" fan now. There some pics of the rad install here: http://www.msportster.co.uk/2008/06/...diator-fitting

The photos show the original 12" fan which I've since replaced with a 16" fan. Sufficed to say I don't have heat problems any more.
