I have a new 07 Street Glide. It has a temp guage on the dash. I can't find anything in the owners manual about it. Is this for engine temps or what? Also, if it is for engine temps, where is the sensor mounted?

ambient air temp. but due to extreme heat coming off the 07, it is useless. customer pulled up the other day on -7 ultra, his guage showed 120!!!!!

Yeah, they are pretty useless. Guess it was the cheapest gauge to fill the 4th hole. I just replaced mine with an oil temp gauge.

My 07 RG air temp guage is fairly accurate. But I did an all-day ride on a rental SG last weekend and noticed it stayed around 100, despite temps in mid-80s.
My thoughts it had to do with difference in fairing location.

Come on they weren't worth a crap on the EVO's or the TC 88's so the fact that it's on a "HOT" 07 has nothing to do with it.
