I'm going to be installing my egt probes and dual display digatron on my 00 zr500. I looked up the place meant measuements on D&Ds site. Anything else I should know. Do you just drill a hole and use some hitemp sealent? Thanks for any suggestions.
Watch the depth the probes go in along with how far out. I wouldn't use high temp. sealant unless you can get your hands on some SUPER high temp. stuff. If you do use the sealant, I would clamp it down with something also. I used that liquid weld stuff(can't think of the name off the top of my head)and a clamp to secure the probes and that seems to be real sturdy. Time will tell though since I haven't had it out yet of course.
Other than that, just follow the instuctions on where to run the wires, ie not to close together, and make sure + is before your coils, headlight, and everything else so that you don't get sparatic readings....
To tell ya the truth, I'm still working on hooking mine up. Just as I was getting ready to start her up and do some checking with am Ohm meter, thats when I found out I have either a bad stator or CDI box....
I was planning on running it directly from the main power off the CDI box as long as I got a constant draw.
i am guessing you are using clamp on probes. all that you should have to do is drill a hole and clamp it onto the pipe as for hooking up power, i just use one of the many power wires from behind the guage pod also, don't totally rely on the EGT's until you have used them for quite awhile and even then check your plugs once awhile. some engines like to run at different temps, so you will have to find the right temp and try to keep it around there
Well, if you are using quick response egt probes (which you should be using) make sure the loop at the end of the probs runs across the pipe. Arctic has all the measuerments as to how far the probs should be from the piston skirt or exh. flange. If you need this figure I have most of them.

He is running D&D pipes, so he'll have to go by their measurements.
D&Ds site says 6inch from the piston for stock AC pipes. Would this be the same measurement I would use for the D&D single or should I give them a call. 6inches works out to be in about the middle of the Y pipe.
