Hello,

I'm going to put a oil temp sensor in my bike.

What is the best place to put it?

In the 748RS the temp sensor is in the return of the oil cooler line!

TIA

This is the location of the sensor on my 916sps fitted with
the magneti marelli mt940 digital dash.
fits in the oil screen nut head.

Thank you Brian,

Is it a special part or the original drilled for the sensor?

Do you have a oil pressure sensor? where is it located?

Other location i thought is to put it with the pressure sensor on the pressures switch hole.

You can drill and tap the original one or get one from JHP Coventry,
The sensor for the oil temp is the same as the water temp sensor
not the temp/gauge sensor though.
The oil pressure sensor is fitted to the same take off point as the normal switch but is on a banjo fitting and pipe.
It fits to the frame tube but i have fitted it on the lower tube as
another part is in the way in its correct location.

What do you guys think of puting the oil temp sensor in the same line of the oil pressure?

Well, its good to have an oil pressure sensor, even though they do fail quite often.

IDK why you'd need an oil temp sensor at all to be honest. Oil temp is regulated by the oil cooler and the over-all engine temp. If you wanna know oil temp for some reason, get a pyrometer and use it to tap sections of the oil system and motor to get an accurate reading, thats what I do.
