crankcase temperature
« on: October 14, 2020, 08:50:04 PM »
Anyone know how to check the temperature of a crankcase wall with a gauge so that one can read the the temperature whist

racing the bike .

In an ideal world this would be on the drive side half way between the cylinder and the crankshaft .

Thank  You .

Are there no fittings on the cases at all? Do nds like you'll just have to use a hand held guage at the Dyno.

Sikaflex, fasten the sensor to the cases with a couple of thin bits of tape and then encase it in Sikaflex.
