Coolant only flows there from the engine when the thermostat is open though... It'd be easier to read engine oil temperature. A common 1/8" pipe thread temperature sender could be installed in the oil pressure access plug (3/8" pipe thread) by tapping a 1/8" pipe thread hole in it, or with a 3/8" NPTF male (1) to 1/8" NPTM (2) female adaptor.
I was also looking at tapping onto the ECU's water temperaure sensor output signal to operate a gauge. According to jh61 who showed the available LED display: "The probe is an NTC. Its value decreases in logarithmic mode when the T increases. Therefore a signal conditioning (with high impedance) is necessary to obtain a linear V/T scale."
Water temperature voltage input is 5 volts as in automotive applications. Voltage output should be between 2.80 and 2.97 volts at 20° C (68° F).
Water temperature sensor resistance:
–20°C (–4°F): 18.80 ±2.37 kΩ
0°C (32°F): About 6.544 kΩ
40°C (104°F): 1.136 ±0.095 kΩ
100°C (212°F): 0.1553 ±0.0070 kΩ
my versys is paid off, i have an fj-09 as my main road bike right now and im currently doing nothing with my versys. im thinking it would make a good candidate to convert to an offroad beast! my question, is what do i need to do to get a 21" tire on the front, and what shock will bolt on to the...
I bought this rear stand today because I read it works ok on the 2015 650. But I can not get it to fit, it interferes with the rear fender. Here's the post saying someone used it on their 2015 just fine. Maybe HF changed the size of the stand!? I don't know why it doesn't work on mine.
Anyone know how to disconnect this plug from the stator? I can just barely reach it with my fingers and can probably get it loose, if I knew what the process was for releasing it. Seems simple enough, but when you can't really see it, not so easy. I've attached a picture.
I'm thinking my...
I have a 2015 3rd Gen Versys 650
I have been researching and it says I must use a 2015 or newer Rear rim.
Does anyone know the reason that a 2010 Rim Technically wont work on a 2015?
I have an opportunity to purchase a 2010 rim with a nice meaty tire on it.
- Curios as to what is different...
