I initially wanted to temporarily connect an oil pressure gauge so that I could do a little investigation into my bottom end components. Once I got it finished, I decided to leave it on. Here is the process that I went through. Please read this entire section as I made important discoveries along the way.

Mike Jones' set up

Mike Jones sent me this information about his oil pressure gauge.

It is a USD $20.00 gauge from Harbor Freight (item number 98475) that requires no oil lines to the gauge, using an electronic sender and an electrical signal from the sender to the gauge. I've used this on my Vert for about half a year now and am happy with it.
