    It makes no difference it's just a heat sensor, it's what's easiest

    Thought the whole idea of fitting one of these was to determine the temperature the engine is running at not fitting it to a pipe directly after the fluid has been cooled??

    Best you contact Trail tech?? Rolling Eyes

    The last one I fitted you had to buy a Tee section that fitted into the rad hose of your choosing.

    You cut the hose, take approx 20mm out & fit the tee. The T part then had a sensor in which measured the water temp. Connect the wire to the fitting on top of the tee.

    They may have changed in the last few years, to a sensor already attached to the cable, but if you put this onto a rubber hose, you wont get the water temp.

    Maybe an offset for the insulation provided by the hose, but as walnut says best to contact trail tech.

    yes i had the T-section with the kit..... i fitted it to the top hose on the pump side.... i was going to fit it on a lower pipe but the left side is to short & the right side id tight on the exhaust + thought since heat rises a top hoses would be best anyway the sensor is protected by a rad shroud
