If coolant stops flowing for some reason (water pump failure, contaminants, etc.) your top end could be 250 degrees F and your coolant wouldn't necessarily show it. On a side note, you can also tap into the stock tach wires so you don't have to use the supplied TT tach wires.

Is that where it is on the '08s? I was under the impression that the temp sensor was in the radiator, but I might be missing something.

Can't go out and look, bike is at work right now (take home truck when I'm on-call)
The older I get the more I realize how few people I actually need in my life.
