VIRAGO OIL FILL PLUG

PostAuthor: tukes23 » Tue Aug 08, 2017 12:39 pm

Mod edit: Approved item

This is a direct replacement for your crappy factory plastic plug. These are CNC machined from 6061 aluminum and fit better than factory.

Rev 1 is a reproduction of the factory plug in Aluminum and has the fill volume engraved in it to replace the sticker that always falls off the plastic plug.

Rev 2 is a new Knob style design that adds a bit of flare to a normally ignored area.

All plugs are currently only available in a machined finish, but can easily be polished, brushed, powdercoated or painted by you.

All plugs will also include a new high-temp O-ring.

Will fit 1981 and up XV750-XV1100 Viragos.

Please visit the online store for purchase.

It would be cooler if they have a temp gauge or sensor.

I'm currently working on a piece to replace the oil level sensor with a temp sensor. It probably won't be practical for anyone else, but I'm only doing that because I'm going to put an oil pressure sensor in the system, so i don't need the level sensor.

My build is going to have a ton of electronics on it with a custom digital gauge system keeping track of everything.

looked through your parts, nice work.

I would like to know more about your custom electrical system with the extra sensors. Would you mind starting a build thread?

FYI the pressure system will only tell you when you are completely out of oil, if you want advanced notice keep the level sensor. With your fabrication skills why not add a temp sensor somewhere else? like your oil cooler adapter.

When asking how, also tell me why.
