Oil Level/Temp Dipstick w/Lighted LCD

Has anyone used the HD Oil Level/Temp dipstick with lighted LCD readout P/N: 63030-09 for checking their oil? Looks like it would be nice to use during trips for when the bike's oil is at normal temps.

IF so, how did you like it
Thanks

I started to buy one once and a friend talked me out of it. Said he had owned 3 of them and they all stopped working in a fairly short period of time. Talked to another friend that had one and he said virtually the same thing so I spent my money on more useful things like whiskey.

I had one. IMO it cost too much and is too fragile, mine lasted about 2 years, but the display started going bad after just one year.

I have had 2 in the last 5 or 6 years. So take your chances. They are handy just wish the were more reliable.

nice feature but they do die out due to water seepage, solution: cover the entire chrome with clear mylar tape/Polyester Tape - works like a charm

Yep. Great tool but fades fast.
Put a real oil temp gauge in the pan.
