  • Oil Pressure

    Do I need a 100 lb. pressure gauge or will a 60 lb. work ? my gauge face is so blured out that its nearly impossible to read.

    SS custom cycle uses 100lbs oil filled.

      60# will be more accurate at lower pressure (at idle & after the oil is warm)

        You don't think startup pressure will damage the gauge ? I bought a Marshall 60#

          It could. Depends on what bellows and gearing Marshall is using.
          When my bike first starts, oil pressure is around 80 psi + on high idle, hot high idle is around 50 +.

        Get the 100 to avoid damage to the gauge. Also make sure you buy the proper sending unit for the gauge that you buy. It does make a difference.

          Sending unit? Mine mounts directly to the head, no sending unit

          your is a mechanical gauge. mine is electric gauge mounted in the fairing and uses a sending unit. either way is fine.

          80lbs when cold. 8lbs when hot at idle. The oil pressure port is on the right side bottom aft of the cams. Black or silver motor ? It matters.

            100# Gauge works Great
