I like the idea of having a temp gauge instead of just the idiot light. Is the wiring already present for installing a temp gauge?

I put on on my 01 MXZ 800.The wiring harness is already on the sled ready to plug in.They will also supply a new sending unit with the guage that you will have to change.Just drill a 2.5 inch hole and plug it in.Don't forget to unplug the idiot lite or the guage won't work.

I put the 'doo temp gauge on my '01 MXZ when I got it. The only thing I can add is put it on the LH side of the dash. If you install it on the RH side, the wires barely reach. There is a template included for hole location.

I was hoping to pick up a cheap used gauge instead of buying the kit. What would be involved with this approach?

Why would you bother with a used one when a new one come's with everthing you need for under a hundred buck's.

Because I figure I can get a used gauge for 20 bucks.

Oh yeah, that too. The wiring diagram is in the manual if you have one.
