you usually want to get the temps as the water exits the motor, at the waterneck where the bleeder screw is would be the perfect place to tap and die a sensor, the stock one is in the plug on the radiator

If you want water temp,stick it in the rubber hose going back to the rad from the motor; if you want a combination of water & head temp ,since alum transfers heat, a good spot is where Max said

so your sayin if you tap a sensor in the waterneck it would pick up heat from the neck??? That is where I had mine and it worked fine, the gauge never got over 210, On my rhino motor, not my rotax.

Max, if the sensor is at the alum neck on the head,it is picking up both head and water temp average; it works fine,I agree,but true water temp has to be in rubber tube just before the rad;I have both in my Teryx,and it reads about 6 to 8 degrees diff,being the water temp sensor at the tube at the rad is lower

I have mine in the stock sensor location, if yamaha put it there then that is where it should be read from. and most water temp sensors are near the thermo housing, not in the radiator, those are only to turn on the fans. and it is this way on a rhino also.

Rog ,I agree with you; my comment was,at the stock location it is reading both combo of head & water,not that is wrong,but it is reading both and will make the reading higher
