Temperature Sending Unit

Post by Joneszy »



I have a 1983 Aspencade that I have stripped down. The gauges have been replaced with those off a 1982 Aspencade. So I have gone from Digital display to analogue. The temperature sender currently on my 83 Aspy is a two wire sensor but the 82 gauges require a one wire sender, Honda part # 37750-611-154. This part # is unavailable on any supplier site(such as HondaPartsNation, Partzilla etc.) I have checked so far and sellers on Ebay want an arm and a leg to ship to Canada. I was wondering if anyone here had done a crossover on the above part and had good luck. Ex. I see one sight where it says a Borg Warner WT501 would work. Due to amount of work involved in changing this over I would prefer to put in a new part rather than used. Any suggestions greatly appreciated

I was not able to get the temp gauge to work and not an electrical genius so don't know why. Assume it is due to the digital gauge not using a 7V regulator. I did change the two post temp sender out for a single post but did not put a 7V regulator in the bike as yet. The bike is not a tourer for me but an around town bike, I just keep an eye on it and make sure the fan cycles off & on as it shouldEverything else works OK and I am pleased that the gauges are now analogue because IMHO those gauges look better with the bike which has been stripped to look like a standard model. Took a bit of trial& error but with a wiring diagram got all the other functions that I needed. Used a gauge cluster off an 82 Aspencade. Also removed the air compressor/selector switches set-up and now have air but must inflate manually using shrade valves.
