Rzr Icon Add-on Temp gauges

I see allot of you seasoned rzr drivers have additional gauges on your dashes. Im assuming one is a temp gauge attached to the coolant line. What gauges are recommended that most of you install and how easy are these additional monitoring systems/gauges to install? Who sells the complete install kits with lines, wires, gauges, hoses, etc...?

Re: Add-on Temp gauges

I understand the concept of monitoring your oil & temp, but why the Voltage?

Re: Add-on Temp gauges

Makes good sense. Does the voltage gauge just connect directly to the battery? What if you have a dual battery system isolated with a Warn isolator?

Re: Add-on Temp gauges

A really nice set up is the Dakota gauge pkg. It's not cheap but is one of the best out there.

Does the Dakota gauges have all of the gauges needed as well as connections? How about water tight?

I went with the full speedo set up. It replaces factory speedo and has speed, rpm,odom, 2 trips, clock, water temp, oil pressure, volts, fuel. Your factory wires just plug in and all there sensors plug in. My only concern I see is I'm not sure if they make them for a 2011 yet. Yes water tight.

Then that gage is even more desirable. Would be great to monitor your voltage. Just like having a multimeter right on the dash.

Wouldn't it be nice to toggle between the devices on read voltage at each. Just as if you were placing your test lead on each individually.
