E-Glide Voltage & Air Temp Gauges Question

2177 Views 11 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  08' FLHX N WV
My ride is a 96 E-Glide Classic. Two questions:

1. I noticed recently that my voltage gauge needle sticks on occasion. I know it's not a loose wire cause I checked that when it first happened. The last two times it happened, I gave the glass a little tap with my finger and the needle rose from 0 to it's normal operating position. Anyone else had this problem?

2. Anyone know where the sensor is for the air temp gauge? The thing is notoriously inaccurate and it's useless the way it is. If I knew where the sensor was, I might try relocating it.

the temp gauge needs a thermocouple not just one wire.. Its a little white box like 3/4 by 1/2.. I havent looked at mine lately. Sitting on the bike its on the left inner fairing support (the black one) I cant totally remember how it works i just put an oil temp in its place..
Never had a problem with the voltage gauge.

I took the temperature sensor off the bracket and zip tied it to the left fork tube just above the rubber stopper doughnut. I didnt splice any wires. I just rerouted the factory ones. It sits between the inside of the left fork tube and the neck. I can see it if I turn the forks all the way to the right.

Thats prolly a better choice than inside the damn fairing. For the life of me i just dont understand what the %uC* they were thinking here. Someone had their head in their A$$
