Ambient temp display out to lunch no more
Well something that may seem nitnoid that I have been aggravated with was the inaccuracy of the temp displayed on the bike. Why put it there if it is always wrong? Luckily, came across another riders post who relocated the temp sensor and no S*&T, it is on the money or no more than 1 degree off from reported temps for area. I have checked it against day and night, dry and damp and whats being reported by local weather centers is pretty much what I got. Also, noticed as riding in colder temp it was leaning more towards what was hitting you as it caught the air flow up from the frame/forks, not just a static which I like better.
Simple process to relocate. Remove windshield access cover from front of wing, on riders left mirror, a small silver tab at the end of a black wire is snapped in place. I gently removed and relocated just above fuel tank inside of fairing so it would get access to airflow as well when riding. Only thing I notice is with sun coming over my shoulder it was catching some direct sunlight and I seen the temp rise a couple degrees. May tuck it down there a little deeper. Will see, plenty of wire to play with.
Pic 1 = Located on mirror after removing with flat tip
Pic 2 = Showing connector it is run to
Pic 3 = Snugged up loose wire and zip tied to ensure no chaffing
Pic 4 = Zip tied to line above fuel tank on left side of fairing
Safe ridin all, lookin forward to reading any mods ya'll are doing or done.
