I shared this before; off an Enfield.

I'll investigate the sender thing, which will mean power.
There is also an utter dearth of handlebar mounting solutions (unless you want a nice harley chrome one for nice Harey prices).

Most pressure senders are simply an earth switch which provide the earth connection for the warning light ( whatever voltage) so the only power required is to one side of the warning light.

12v though ....

I think I'll go to 12v anyway .... the electronic regulator allows that and 12v LED's are easier come by.

I asked about and many of the smaller electronic solutions are not designed to mount in the weather ...

Is it really worth the trouble John ? The chances of you seeing complete pressure failure (if it ever happens) before any damage is done is going to be very unlikely. Once fitted you are only going to be worrying over what pressure it reads when and why, should it be that low etc. etc. Just change the oil when recommended, look in the oil tank to check the return flow occasionally and get out and about riding and enjoying it. All these little extras can be a pain in the rear sometimes.....and become an obsession ??!
