oil pressure sending uinit

Going to install an autometer electric oil pressure guage and I'm not sure where the sending unit should be installed. I have a 2012 and I believe I see the stock sender near the oil filter but I'm not sure how it is threaded?

You need a flex hose between the cases and sending unit... If you use a hard pipe style nipple it'll break for sure...

Re: oil pressure sending uinit

where at on the cases?? I see a plug above the oil filter but I'm thinking this may have something to do with the oil pump. Does anybody have pic's with there flex hose installed?

I think that is where I installed my sending unit. I will have to look when I get home and try and post a pic of my install. But I do think mine was right above my oil filter on an 08 rzr 800.

YES BUT USE A FLEX LINE BETWEEN THE FITTING IN THE CASES AND THE SENDING UNIT or it will break from vibrations......

Re: oil pressure sending uinit

I'm thinking mine is different, I have a 2012 and I don't believe the is a plug or tapped hole there. My OEM sending unit looks to be above the oil filter in a little bit of a different area. I'll check when I get home, thanks for all the help and I'll let you know if mine looks the same.

Re: oil pressure sending uinit

I called auto meter cause im wanting to install one on my xp also and they said the pro-comp fluid filled is the only one they recommend for a UTV. Do we need a sender or is that just on electrical guages and not mechanical ?

above the oil filter is camshaft sensor to let ECU know when #1 is @ TDC, required on 2011-2012 models since they have sequential fuel injection vs bank or batch fire eFI on 2008-2010 models

Yes...that is a counter-rotating engine sold in the Southern hemisphere. Maybe some Aussies will chime in!

Re: oil pressure sending uinit

Do yourself a favor and get a Dakota Digital gauge. I have the Dakota Digital Oil Pressure, Water Temp and Voltage. Gives me accurate readings and with a quick scan of the dash I know what's going on.

I got the Concours Specialties dash plates as a door prize at the RZRForums rally in Taylor Park, CO. I would recommend them as they are excellently made.



Here's a couple pictures of my oil pressure sending unit. Flex line came with my old gauge set from Quadovator. Don't know if they are still out there or not.
