Vulcan2000 Now that a couple of members helped you out with the easy fix and saved you a ton of money at the stealership how about letting us know a little bit about your bike and your riding experience. Let us know were you are from. Put that in the "Newbie" introduction section.

Found it thanks!! Turns out that the wire attached to the temp sensor came off. Reattached and works properly!!!

Ceal If you're not feeling like taking off the tank, you can see the temp sensor just by removing the right neck cover. It's sticking out right on top of the thermostat housing, behind the radiator fill cap, like goofyfoot said. That wire gave me trouble too. The connector broke, so I just soldered it on.

Take off the tank and you will see the wire connected to it just behind (toward the seat) the radiator fill cap. I think I might have wrapped electrical tape around mine at one time.

So the test for a sensor would be to put it in hot water and see if the needle went up, that is if the gauge was never moving at all.

So my guess is you have a short someplace and perhaps the connector at the temp sensor is touching the frame slightly.

Temp gauge

I just replaced the stator on my 94 Vulcan 750. Temp gauge jumps into the red zone when I turn on the key and motor not running. When it is running it goes up into the red then down to cold and back and forth. Any suggestions?
