    I installed the oil pressure gauge. I read where the pressure would be around 20-40lbs when first started, then drop to about 5lbs when warmed up. My bike when straight to 30lbs and eventually dropped to 20lbs once warm. I didnt go for a ride but she idled for about 10 minutes. Attached are pics of where I mounted it. The screen was inside the engine so i left it there. Could the screen be the cause of the gauge reading so high?

    But isnt that a flag that something is amiss?
