Wanting to install an oil pressure gauge.

Does anyone know what is needed to install a oil pressure gauge for the 800? Is it the same set up as on the 750? (I have a 750 bruteforce engine on my work bench at the moment and can use that to mock up the system)
Do I need anything extra apart from the fittings and gauge?

I am intested in learning, after running my 750 low.

Just need to put a Tee fitting on the port for the oil light switch on the bottom drivers side of the motor. Be a little careful running the tube up to the gauge as it is fairly close to the front exhaust pipe. I would recommend wrapping the tube with some heat mat and securing it so it cannot contact the pipe. The tube that came with the Autometer gauge we used was plastic, don't want it melting and spewing oil on the exhaust!

I haven't got to it yet, but I may use an electrical sensor and gauge. Not to comfortable with the idea of the oil line possibly getting damaged.

I didn't mean to imply that the line is fragile, if you do a nice job routing and securing it it will be fine.
