    Hi, if you don't see any damage to your oil temp sending wire , it would be safe to assume your gauge is faulty. I think the manual says how to test the gauge.

    Good advice, you will also need the spacer for the drive sprocket because the 530 is thinner than the 630. Z1 sells them. I did this conversion a couple years ago.
