Having never had a temp gauge for either, I used to ride, blissfully unaware of either important bits of information. Now, I've got Dakota Digital gauges that show both.
The oil temp gauge can be set to flash when it gets too high; the default is 230°. On longer rides it gets into the mid 230s, and during a slow parade-like ride a few weeks ago, it hit 245°. Should I be concerned, or is the default conservatively low?
IIRC, the EITMS kicks in at 300° head temp. What temp is cause for alarm?
