    Exhaust Gas Temperature for each cylinder. The backlight changes from blue to red on either side if the temperature goes above a set level, so you can back off and prevent a seize.

    1200F is apparently a good, safe figure for performance. So I'll set the gauge for that, and if it goes above I'll be able to tell quick smart. It's just matter of finding some nice straight stretches of road...

    Depends on what fuel you are using , what compression ratio you have and how far the probe is from the piston . Once you have it dialled in and a max safe temperature set you will love the gauges , easiest way to tune a two stroke .

    Great result on the bike .
