    Rednek, did you have any issue with this fitting leak at the copper washer? I just put this setup on my bike but it leaked pretty good a few seconds after starting it up. Took it all apart & put teflon on the threads & smeared permatex copper on the copper washer. Waiting to see how it holds up.

    No issues whatsoever. Put it on about 2 years ago and have put on around 15k miles since. Hasn't leaked a drop.

    Good to hear...hopefully the teflon & permatex will be the end of my leak.

    EDIT: Well that did it. Bone dry.

    Here's my gauge setup. Total money spent was about $100. Could have done it for a little less but adding some 90 degree fittings & the black line added about $25.
