1980 GL1100 Outside Air Temperature guage

Post by Dalydude »



The OAT guage on my 1980 GL1100 constantly reads 75-ish degrees no matter that it's nearly 50° out there. I kinda like knowing what my environment is like.

However, I can't find a replacement? I'm an old geezer, and prefer analog, but open to digital. It would be nice if it fit into the same hole in the Instrument cluster.

Any ideas?

Not a lot of choices for the round gauges of the 80/81 dash if that is what you have????

I saw that one. I'm sure it doesn't work, because, unless it's from the Antarctic, it should read approximately room temperature, 70-ish degrees. The owner won't assure me it's functional.
