Reading through the thread I was wondering what you guys are using for monitoring the temperature.
Does the ECU tell you the engine temperature?
I was wondering if it would be possible to use the air temperature instrument in the dash to monitor the oil temperature, it might top out at 99C though.
Beetle, I wonder if the air temperature as shown on the dash is used by the ECU or would it be strictly looking at the ECU for its temperatures?
I was thinking an owner might have a switch to change from Air temperature to oil temperature sensor.
Is there a chart for temperature vs resistance for the sensor as they used to have for the 2000 era bikes?

The ECU monitors engine temperature and intake air temperature. The only way to monitor the engine temp is via some sort of OBD tool. The only two that work with Guzzi are GuzziDiag and ScanM5X. ScanM5X is good because it's an Android app, and you can use a phone. Only works with the 5AM ECU.

The ambient air temperature sensor is part of the dash electronics. It only for rider use. It's not used in any way by the ECU. You can see it via OBD too. However, having it display engine temperature would require re-programming the dash and ECU software. Or a 3rd party dash.

The stock ETS isn't all that accurate, due to its location. Meaning, the measured temperature isn't necessarily the actual engine temp. The accuracy of the actual sensor isn't in question. I relocated mine because I could. The 1400 barrels have a better location. There's a resistance v temperature chart in the service manual.

I monitor the oil temperature coming from the sump to the cooler.

beetle,
On the last photo of you posted of your thermostat, on the inlet - 'IN' is a double banjo, one feed of the banjo is the oil hose from the sump, the other feed has the sensor connection for your temperature gauge, it then does a right angle turn and goes down to a brass connection that belongs to? I cannot figure out what that is.

No, it's not a double banjo. It's actually an optical illusion. That hose that looks like it's coming out of the banjo at 7 O'Clock is actually out-hose to the cooler. Here's a pic from another angle.

Thanks for pointing me to the sensor information, its exactly the same as used in the original Marreli system eons ago.

Thanks for the illumination Beetle, I had thought you had the temperature and a possible pressure sensor hanging off that connection due to space limitations (mind you, I could not find a double banjo like what I thought I saw, on the Aeroflow site).
I was hoping to install the thermostat while replacing the sump gaskets (Pete got me the oil and gaskets two weeks ago), but the thermostat is somewhere between Miami and Customs in Sydney.
Thanks again.
Greg.

Had my GRiSO out on Sunday for for the first time in ages. Cool & crisp Melbourne day, about 15 degrees celsius. Decided to fully close the vents on the MG Cycle oil cover thingy that I have installed. About 45 minutes of suburban riding. Dipstick thermometer showed bang on 130 degrees C when I got home. Maybe the adjustable vents make more of a difference than I first thought, as the 130 degree reading surprised me a bit given the cool ambient temps.

Impressive engineering beetle.

Couple of questions

About the overcooling situation, and I am absolutely NOT trying to turn this into an oil thread, but ,is the specified 10W60 oil then really a good idea if the oil always overcooled, or is the oil always hot at exhaust valves and cooling everywhere else.

Also curious if the overcooling is just a 1200 issue or does it also affect the 1100 and what about the 850, I wonder if its oil temp is better with no cooler?

Since the 8V is air/oil cooled, keeping the oil cool ("cool" being a relative term) is essential. As you said, the oil is always going to become super heated (again, relatively) around the exhaust. There's a relatively high volume of oil pumped around the somewhat smallish galleries around the exhaust valves, so the very expensive 10W-60 is needed, as lesser oils would either get vaporised or possibly leave crappy deposits.

The 2V engines are completely different animals. Also, the 1100 has a built-in thermostat. The 850 doesn't make enough of a bang in each pot to get dangerously hot.

Beetle,
Do you remember if you able to reuse any of the OEM oil hose?
Once the thermostat is installed, an oil change will require a hose from the bottom of the oil cooler to be removed as the oil cooler no longer drains back to the sump, correct?

My thermostat is still in Miami, Improved Racing have said that USPS international parcels will take four to eight weeks to deliver as USPS is prioritising medical supply deliveries during the CORVID19 outbreak.

Yes. I used the original pump "out" line. Normally it goes to the rear of the cooler. I used it as the line "in" to the thermostat.

Incorrect. Oil from the cooler goes directly to the heads. It then drains back into the sump as per normal.

The oil system functions as follows:

When the oil is cold, and the thermostat is in bypass mode (open), ~90% of the oil goes straight in and out of the thermostat, straight to the heads. Some still flows to the cooler. When the oil gets hot enough to activate the thermostat, the bypass closes, and all the oil is sent via the cooler.

Simples!

Hi Beetle,
I meant that, after installation of the thermostat (bike runs fine) and it is time for the next oil & filter change, to drain all the oil from the bike (after the sump plug & filter are removed) would you also need to disconnect an oil hose from the oil cooler to drain it of its oil, as both oil lines (in & out) from the oil cooler are now attached to the thermostat (up near the right cylinder). Or does oil from the oil cooler not   drain back to the sump on a stock 8V?

I don't imagine all the oil drains from the cooler under normal circumstances. That, plus the amount of oil remaining in the thermostat and lines wouldn't amount to much.

Yes, really, this obsession with both getting the old oil out and getting the *Absolutely* 'Correct' amount back in is bonkers.

Just change the oil, (The intervals are very conservative!) when the book says and make sure with the engine oil when it is changed it's half way between the 'Add' and the 'Full' marks on the stick.

JOB DONE!
