Engine Temp Gauge?

It just dawned on me recently that, although the Bobber is water-cooled, it doesn't have a water temperature gauge...!! Probably just a warning symbol in the LCD in case things get too hot.
Not that I really miss one, (it'd probably be just something more to worry about )

Nice to know that Triumph are confident enough to let us just concentrate on riding.

"Everytings gonna be alrite..." "Don't worry, be happy..."

Cheers! Have a great day!

Good point.....I'd like to see a battery/volt meter...


I think another member had a replacement cap/bolt at the oil filler that had an oil pressure gauge.

Was going to ask this question, so I'd like to resurrect this thread.

Has anyone come across an actual engine Coolant temp gauge yet? or an oil Pressure gauge?
Or am I dreaming impossible dreams again?

I want to get one myself, when I have the spare cash. In fact, there are so many little bits I want for my bobber, but I had to start with comfort over styling.

This is just my opinion and being an automotive mechanic for a few decades, a coolant temp gage is really not necessary with the engine cooling fins on the cylinder barrels, it might be a factor in a lot of stop and go traffic but normal riding not a problem.

I have been looking at adding An oil pressure as well, but would need to build up a kit in black, are you feeling the black vibe here? Lol.

I think the bracket works well, would go for a less ornate gauge, Matt black and less bling bling.
