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.

I thought about replacing the gauge but I have an oil temp dipstick so it would be redundant though easier to read while riding. Was the oil temp gauge/sensor fairly easy to install?

Thanks for the advise on the wire. I'll look for that wire and probably extend it like you say next time I'm kicking the mice out of my fairing which will be in the coming week. Seems they like making their nest in there but they haven't done any damage yet. I heard they don't like fabric softener sheets so I'll be adding a few of those in there too along with some poison bait as a backup.
Serious? In the fairing? Mice? How the heck do those little varmints get up in there? I know those suckers can crawl up a lot of surfaces, but dang...
I think they're getting in on the bottom where the outer fairing meets the bike below the headlight. There's a piece of soft rubber there that's easy for them to move out of the way and clime aboard. Believe me...it looks funny having mouse traps set on my floorboards...but I've done it to try to catch them. Just a pain (could be a real pain if I snap my fingers in it) to have to reset them every time I get back from a ride. The bait blocks I got have a neat little hole in the middle....perfect size for a zip-tie. I'll put a few of them in there along with some dryer sheets and see if that works.
