On the way to the Port Burwell Rally 2009 this year. I had a seize on my Lambretta just 50 km from the site. That really sucked. I knew my bike was running hot, but not that hot. I installed an EGT (Exhaust Gas Temperature) Gauge from an Aircraft parts supplier in order to avoid a heat seize.
In this setup I mounted the gauge off my headset with a bullet shell mounting kit. The probe wire runs through the horn cast and clamped on to the exhaust. You need to drill a hole in your exhaust. The hole to the left side of the exhaust, so it does not get clipped from underneath while I ride.
This is my anti blow up warning system. This is a popular add on for those who like to ride long and hard. I just like to ride without pushing home, or renting a UHaul truck.
