Both are pretty easy to install, you'll need the senders for both. I've done the fuel gauge and the temp shouldn't be too hard.

I'd stick with marine gauges due to the moisture.

This is probably a dumb question. Where do you place the water temp sender? The entry or exit hose of the radiator? I just picked up my gauges yesterday and gonna install this weekend. Thanks for any help.

I put mine after the engine before it goes through the radiator that way i get a better engine temp reading not how well the radiator is working (but it would be interesting to have both and compare).

Scoynm, what temps are you registering. I placed my sending unit in the exit hose under the driveline hump. The gauge is only reading 125 in 80 degree weather(idling)

It does seem low, but the fan came on. Im a little low on coolant after the install. I will refill and then take it around the block and see. let you know.

after warming up and under normal operating scenario, i run right at 180. during long dune runs or under really hard riding, it might creep up to about 195-200. your gauge doesnt seem to be registering correctly. at that temp, you arent even warmed up yet. are you running special antifreeze? engine ice or the like???

Well, filled it up and took it for a spin. Gauge registered between 125-150. Fan came on near 150 and knocked it back down to 125. Must be my gauge or sending unit.

Who makes that center console? That looks great! I need to do something quick. I need water temp, fuel, and I'd like to have a voltage meter as well.
