Very practical - useful accessories.

I have found this genuine Victory oil temp dipstick accessory very useful.

It should be my avatar pic if I did it right.

The pic is also in my ALBUMS. Does anyone know why pics are upside down?

So does that thing just stay in there, or do you put it in to read the temperature and then take it out and put the cap back on?

What exactly is it useful for? Sorry I'm not up on what the importance of oil temperature is.

Its what I would do.
Keep it stock for a while, enjoy it stock for a while and slowly add things, it's nice to see it transform and you enjoy it every step of the way

That "thing" stays in there. It is actually a dip-stick with a gauge built in. As you can see (if you stand on your head) the temp is rather high, highest I remember. I would be inclined to get out on the road for some fresh air when it gets over 250.

Oil temp is indirectly engine temp.

yep.

if your oil temp is high

you can almost guarantee your engine temps are high as well

So basically its a dipstick that also measures you r oil temperature. Got it.

It's even Victory branded.

Is the engine overheating a common problem or something. is it something you really need to be worried about? I just imagine it can't be too common with a brand new motorcycle.

If it gets too hot in the engine with the reading on that gauge, that can't be good. At least this is a way to know how hot it's getting.
