Oil Pressure Gauge

I just purchased the Unobtainium 2.0 panel for my 1999 GL1500SE and would like to have a Voltage gauge and an Oil pressure gauge.

For the Oil pressure gauge, I will need to add a street T-fitting between the factory Oil pressure sensor and the engine. Can anyone tell me what thread is on the Oil pressure sensor? Is it a NPT, BSPT, or something else? What size?

These are the gauges that I'm considering. They are not an exact match to the factory speedometer and tachometer gauges, but they are similar. I really like the combination of digital and analog in one gauge.

I do not know the thread size, , , ,BUT, , ,I would bet the ranch that the threads are METRIC. I can't believe Mother-Honda would put a USA or British thread on that engine. I would guess a 12-14mm thread sounds about right.

It's 10mm mpt or something like that, tapered thread in any case. Close to 1/8 npt but not quite.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

Nice looking gauges, but I don't see anywhere that they are intended for outdoor, or wet environment use. It appears they are inside vehicles and trucks only. You may want to call and check on that.

These are the times that try men's souls. The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will, in this crisis, shrink from the service of their country; but he that stands by it now, deserves the love and thanks of man and woman. Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.
Thomas Paine December, 1776

That is a valid point. I will give them a call. Although, I never intentionally ride in the rain or when the roads are wet.

Nobody does but if you don't ride in the rain, you don't ride.

Waterproof gauges???



The face might get a few drops but the seal should be sufficient. And a gauge visor might solve the problem completely.


Definitely NOT a deal breaker for those gauges IMHO.

Had to laugh. As a fellow Washingtonian I have to ask, how can you NOT ride in the rain?

Libraries are full of stuff I don\'t know.

Years ago I put a gauge on my CB750K2. I was surprised to find out that the threads were 1/4” pipe. Can’t swear about the GL but the sensors look the same

I emailed GlowShift gauges and asked if there gauges were somewhat waterproof. I received a reply that emphatically stated that they were not.
Below is the response from GlowShift.
