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.

You can also buy one that's bolts to somewhere on the engine spray plug or the like

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
