Looks good to me. I thought from there the coolant went back to the radiator. :thumbsup:

Yea you did it right. That way your reading the engine's water temp. That hose as close to the head will give you the closest reading of the engines operating temp.

If you put it in the lower hose then it would read much cooler and wouldnt really show overheating until it is to late.

I have had my ESR temp gauge for a couple years and it is still going strong.

Normal temps is 180-200 when riding. The fan doesnt kick on until it gets around 225 deg.
