A newer temp sensor (03-04 or an 05-06 ZX6R's) has to be used. Problem is it has bigger threads than our stock. Another member had his block dirlled and tapped to accept the bigger sensor. You might be able to use a brass fitting adapter as an alternative to drilling the block...[B)]

What if you did a radiator swap with the 03/04 636? According to the Master Swappable List you can swap the radiators out, use the 03/04 Temp sensor and somehow wire it up to the Gauges, would that work on my 2001?

ok just did the 05-06 speedo swap and ran into a few snags, being the 98-99 model.

first off i have a 99 zx6r, and used a 05 gauge

i didn't realize the 98-99 gauge wires were so far off from the 00-02, if you look at the front off the 98-99 plug, it is almost exactly the same as looking at the back of the 00-02 plugs, except for 4 wires, before i knew this i pulled out all the wires except the pink and yellow because i thought they were already in place as per the diagram for the 00-02 models, so i continued in order from the yellow, which was in the bottom right corner(like it was supposed to be) but only if you looked at it from the front (which is wrong), so i proceeded to put the rest in, well every wire was completely backwards, oddly enough the gauge powered up, but did not function, once i realized they were different it was a no brainer, so for 98-99 models remove every wire as none stay in the same spot. here is a link for 98-99 models diagram to 00-02 swap (i didn't use it) you don't need it, this thread has the info you need, its just for a reference.

The 07-08 gauges are easier to set up than the 05-06 because the speed sensor is the same (it has a 4 pulse per revolution sprocket nut) as the 03-04 and earlier. Only problem is the connector plug is much smaller on the 07-08's so you would have to pull out all the wires from the plug and install them with heatshrink around each contact. I just never installed it on mine because I may be selling my bike.

Do the wires match up the same as with the 03-04 wiring?

Thanks!

Anyone know if this swap will work on an F model? I wouldn't mind trying to be the first to do it, but I am worried about dropping a bunch of cash on it and it being a no go from the start
