www.Mcmaster.com search for "Temperature Indicating labels" McMaster part number 59535k14 12.75 for 10
We've used these for years in the race shop they can be stuck on radiators and cylinders to measure the temperature, 2 types Nonreversible Labels (Temperature-indicating windows turn black as temperature rises above rating. Labels are self-adhesive and have °F and °C markings.) and reversible Labels (Use these self-adhesive indicators again and again. Apply to almost any surface & the relevant temperature square turns green to indicate approximate temperature.)

Now a gauge that can tell me what the coolant temperature is, that would be useful! It would also be way more expensive.
Save your hard earned cash, comrades. This thing is pure gimmick. (just my 2-cents)

the stick on temp indicators are designed and intended for use in industrial applications , they were not designed for motorcycle applications . somebody just happened upon them in a catalog and thought they might be of some use for us motorcycle guys . you can also buy heat sticks that melt when a specific temperature is reached , they are used in the steel and welding industry .
i guess you could call it a gimmick if someone is trying to sell it as being useful for motorcycle applications , a gauge showing actual oil and coolant temperature would be much more useful .
