    Mechanical water temperature gage recommendations?

    I need to add a water temp gage to my instrument cluster because I am not using the stock speedo/tach set.
    Can anyone recommend a mechanical 2"- 2.5" gage?
    I like the gage below because it matches the CB400t gage set that I am using and it will fit in the cluster mount.

    What are you using and would you purchase it again?

    Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I would go electric, it's easer to put in. Here's one example, you could add a matching oil pressure and voltmeter.http://www.amazon.com/Sunpro-CP7005-...uge+Kithttp://

    Mechanical use a capillary line, i.e a hollow tube. This won't take long to break if the gauge is on your bars. If going mechanical, the gauge needs be in a fixed position.

    Do you mean analogue instead of mechanical?
