analog oil temp dipstick

does anyone know of a company that makes an ANALOG oil temp dipstick for the newer bikes? I see the digital ones but I would much rather have an analog gauge if its possible. I know they are available for the older bikes. im hoping to find one for the newer bikes

They seem to have very good customer service too. We'll see when it arrives

Had one of their dipsticks on my 04 Roadking. Was very happy with it.

I didn't go with the dipstick temp gauge.........I ordered an oil temp sensor $10.....a 2" white/chrome oil temp gauge $20......all on ebay......removed the fairing.....pulled that useless air temp gauge and replaced it with the oil temp gauge.....ran the wiring down the frame to the temp sensor. the hot wire from the air temp gauge went right on the oil temp gauge so it is illuminated like it should be........its not a perfect match to the other factory gauges but I've got oil temp in my face right above oil pressure all the time now.........

The dealership sells a kit with basically the same stuff (gauge probably matches better) for over $150..........like my $30 setup just fine.

I actually already have the oil temp gauge in the fairing but I can no longer use the sensor for it in the oil pan. I just did a motor swap and I needed to use that hole in the pan for external oil lines. That's the reason I'm getting the temp dip stick

Guessing your options are very limited then........

You could always drill and tap a new hole in the oil pan ;-)

I was actually thinking about doing that but decided against it. Not really sure why though lol.
