General Discussion / Re: CX500 turbo on ebay - Victoria
« Last post by bahn88 on Yesterday at 19:17 »
I know what you mean-OK condition for most people is workable-a rusty skeleton can become pristine in the hands of a good mechanic (not classing myself as such)

The fairing is off the red CX I am assuming-as the headlight shell on the bike has been moved up considerably.

The fairing itself sits fairly high as I recall-a female rider I knew hated the la Parisian 'cause she was straining to look over the top-this was when we liked to see the front wheel and those new-fangled full road fairings seemed "foreign" 2rolleyes

Shouldn't a turbo be painted stealth black (i.e. radar proof black?)
I still have some in the garage as I recall-and less $ than BMW paint per litre. Open to offers... but no warranties due to age 2rolleyes
Looks also better than adhoc radar proofing (wrapping in foil) as well..........

Thanks for all the replies.

The gauge itself is the "Aquaprova" digital- was going to go a traditional "clock" type gauge but a lot of builders/suppliers wouldn't state that "Autometer " etc was going to be weatherproof........
here's the link for anyone interested:

Anyone planning something similar-can't speak highly enough of Shindy (USA based)-that are happy to do "special orders." Rather than buy from ebay-they'll communicate with both you and the Japanese supplier to source what you need.

the sender probe will be  immersed in the coolant flow , so even if it is slightly out of the main stream it will only be one or two degrees less than the main flow temp

When I adapted my temp gauge on a CX500 a few years back I didn't even give any thought to the length of the sender and used one of these (bunch of dead links but the first few are enough to show):

https://motofaction.org/part-reviews/aeroflow-m16-npt-18-thread-adapter-review-honda-cx500-gl500-cx650-gl650/

...with the sender that came with the gauge - was shorter from memory - and had no issues.

If I had thought to be concerned about it I might have wondered at the time but it didn't even occur.

Thanks for the reply-ideally I might need a longer sensor at the thermostat site based on your measurements
I was also thinking bout putting the sensor at the upper radiator house (using a sleeve) but ain't seen anything made with a 1/8 BSPT port as yet. (yes the solution might be to make one...)

Might try for the compatible longer sensor at thermostat first tho'.....


Cheers

I suppose ideally you'd want  the sensor out in the main stream of coolant but I suspect that having it be less in the flow would not have much impact on the temp sensed.

26mm from under the hex head to the tip. The last step is 11mm long and from the final thread base to the tip is 15.3mm.
