Would not recommend the TBolt temp gauge :frown2:

The stock cap is flat with a .100 thick o-ring and the case has a .070 counterbore = .030 squash for the o-ring (good)

The TBolt cap/gauge has a .060 counter-bore for the o-ring so with the .070 counter-bore in the case theres no squash on the o-ring

The o-ring must help keep the cap/gage tight. because it came loose 3 times while riding

Stuffed 2 o-rings on it but not a good long term scenario . will only use it for testing purposes but would have liked to keep it in at all times :crying:

I have the 500 O-Ring assortment kit and the .090 was the thickest one In it for that diameter.

I do want to run it so i look on line for one ...

Point also was i shouldn't have to go through that for 45 Bucks !

I contacted the vendor and they said "gee, thats the first i heard or that " I will contact the mfg about that ,

Yes I have photo !

Going to call and pretend to order one next week and ask if theres any issues with them,,

Probably going to have to go to McMaster Carr and you may need to look in both imperial and metric sizes. How big is the ring that you have? I have a bunch of Harley o rings sitting around, made a mistake with my oil pump and had to buy another whole gasket set to fix it, might have a few that will work (if I can find them). Might have some from my Kayo, bu none of those sets are with me right now.

Huh... I looked at that oil temp gauge when I was ordering my BBK... but my case design is different than your and wouldn't work... What year is your Z? My 2018 and 2019 US (cal and non-cal spec) models look like this.

Also check McMaster-Carr (or similar) for backup rings. This isn't their explicit purpose, but it should add a little thickness to the assembly and get you the compression you are looking for.

@crakerjac: What difference/incompatibility are you seeing? Those cases look the same to me. My '17 and '18 also look the same to me, though I've only been intimate with the '17 case beyond checking/filling oil.

How do you know it dosent work. From the Vendor ?
Assume you talking about it hitting the case raised rib, not the counterbore issue

I have the 1st release 2017 Z'
It has a different case and different push rod

Maybe why my clutch seems great to me when most others seem to not like theres ?

Heads up for those with 1st release if ordering these parts...

14032-0615-26M COVER-CLUTCH,F.M.GRAY ( - AX125AEA17832) 1st release
14032-0634-26M COVER-CLUTCH,F.M.GRAY ( AX125AEA17833 - )

13116-0724 ROD-PUSH ( - AX125AEA17832) 1st release
13116-0731 ROD-PUSH ( AX125AEA17833 - )

I agree with Greg E - Oil temp gage is slow to respond to changing temps. I do think it could be used after a ride to get a ball park typical temp range for reference. I just installed the Trail Tech (cylinder surface mount sensor) which has provided me with good and interesting data. Surprising how little pulling in the clutch and coasting lowers head temps. Supports what I learned with my sled - the fuel does play a significant role in cooling things off. : ).
