Default New Copper Lines and Pressure Gauge

Hey Guys

Just got my pressure gauge done (thanks to you guys) my copper oil lines, and oil filter mount (the spigot on the rear shock mount). Love the way it looks so I really hope nothing leaks.

did you check fitment with the guage on the front rocker of the rear head... you might not be able to see it there with the tank on(and it may hit the tank)depending what tank your runnin'.........i think thats why mine ended up at the farthest rear rocker.... i forgot to point that out when i posted eariler[IMG][/IMG]

I love the copper. I ran my oil pressure gauge off the oil pump using a kind of T fitting so i can keep the oil switch and light.

yeah I noticed that it doesn't fit on the front rocker tonight and switched it to the rear one . The shut off valve is just for show aka its just a mount. I don't plan on doing much performace riding on this so I'm just going to be careful with it.
