I used this on the Fatboy. I'm sure they have one to fit a Sporty.

The Arlen Ness kit is OK.

No way I'm spending that much tho, I like what u guys have goin on. I found the gauge in J&P, and the Russell line on another site for $47 cause that Harley shop that turbota posted isn't around anymore. So I'm wondering what else I need

That's not mine; those are some of Turbota's pics which I had saved and reposted.

I used the Arlen Ness kit without gauge, and used a VDO (undamped) white faced gauge initially. The gauge didn't last long, and I replaced it with that one with an engine turned face that you see in the catalogues (which was oil damped).

Here are some pics:







You can't really look at the gauge there, except when you're stopped.

So would I, now. My original gauge didn't stop working, but the needle shifted. It read about 12 psi when the engine was off!
