Fitting a Scitsu Temperature Gauge

When James Holland did the original dyno runs he said that the engine liked to be hot to perform best. When I went in this year the temp gauge didn't seem to be working and as I probably needed to know how hot it is now more than ever I decided to get a Scitsu Temp gauge (about 35 mail order from A & R Racing). Fitting was relatively straightforward, just remove the old sensor and replace with the new. I used some PTFE plumbers tape on the thread, just to ensure a water tight seal. Cutting up the old clocks took a while but a bit of black gaffa tape and 2 part epoxy later and it looks like the Scitsu was always there. Give or take some glue over-run.

I had paint left from the number board so I decided to do the mudguard, just to see if I could do a good job if I tried. I sanded the mudguard down for 5 minutes and then gave it a light spray. 20 minutes later another light coat went on and then a few more over the next couple of days. And you know what? It actually looks alright!
