Have started looking at installation of the oil pressure gauge:



But was thinking about fuel pressure? Since there seems to be quite easy that the filter on the pump gets clogged, would that be caught early if monitoring fuel pressure?

And what kind of pressure is the fuel under? 1 bar?

EDIT: looked through the manual and found 3.3-3.7 bar.

Looked at prices for a fuel pressure gauge and if going for the same brand as the oil pressure gauge the price is way to high for the benefit, loss of fuel pressure won't to the kind of damage loss of oil pressure can do.

And talked to a friend that messes around with cars and he had some plans for a simpler diod based (green, yellow, red) system for fuel pressure that might be really cheap that might be an option in the future.

And another setback, the new style extra connection for the electric is hitting the touratech skid plate, will for now just open up a bigger hole in the side to make it work:



Had to bend the skid plate back into shape also:



Was slightly bent.



So a different skid plate might be added later on, what is the strongest out there?

Looks sturdy, had my eyes on this one but might go CJ here also:

http://www.adventure-spec.com/defaul...e-950-990.html


Opened up the hole for now so I have something at least:



Also drilled the bolts on the front to be able to add some spring locks, busted the threads on the 950, so now I plan to not tighten hard at all and not use any loctite so it goes in and out easy.

I´ve got a fine TT bashplate i don´t plan using anymore. It´s only the bashplate. Not the frame.

I was consider that one as well. Couldn't find much on it though for reviews.

Here are pics of mine installed.

Would require a new beefed up frame and would prefer a solution I can just purchase, have mine back to shape and in place for now, better still then stock.

Have not looked around that much yet but this seems to be the sturdiest around, but even a 1/4 inch thick will probably bend if coming down hard on something with a bike this heavy.

Thanks for the pictures.

Did a first startup after installing the oil pressure gauge:

Was able to get hold of a few winged quarter turn fasteners for the Snap out glove box:



Choose one that was slightly longer then what was supplied from CPR:



Big thanks to http://www.milspecproducts.com that were helpful and could do a cheap shipping to Sweden even if I took the risk of no insurance or tracking.

Part number for the drop in replacement that is slightly longer: EHF6-60W

Function before fashion is what I call it =)

Have written a post about the oil pressure gauge installation now with a few more pictures if anyone is interested:

Its some clear rubber coating on it, its a normal brake hose.

And since it runs up to a static place and don't follow the handlebar there won't be much "rubbing" but vibrations would probably do damage over time also if it was an abrasive surface against the frame.

Was tempted to strip the bike down blast the frame and paint it yellow!

Would like a Swedish flag inspired paintjob or vinyl in the future and if most things are blue or yellow an orange frame might be a bit of an eyesore.

Next winter perhaps ...unless my dad can bust another engine until then.
