Talking Thunderstorm parts are in

Well,
The TS heads/pistons are in. Let the fun begin!! Can anyone tell me what the electrical connector on the rear head is for? Also, looking for sugguestion on how to tackle the front mount issue. Threaded rod? is it strong enough?

That is a head temperature sensor used on fuel injected Buells.

Is that the actual sensor? Can I rig it up to work on my sporty?

sure, just get the ECM, the ignition module, fuel injection, other assorted buell bits and hook them all up

but seriously, I wonder if its just a standard electronic temp sensor that you could hook up to a cheap autometer type electric temp gauge? that could be cool...
