My triple orginally had EGT's when I bought it. They were installed by drilling and tapping so the probe would just screw in. They were on the side and about 3/4" back from the surface of the exhaust manifold.

I drilled and tapped right into the FPP exhaust flange for my EGT probes. It's worked great for me. Just make sure you drill and tap all your holes the same distance from the cylinder. This was easier and cheaper than having bungs welded to the pipes. Got to be careful drilling waterjacketed pipes as well. You don't want to add water to the exhaust arbitrarily.

Don't set your engine by the EGT the first time. Get the engine right, then determine what the EGTs' are in this situation. THEN you use this info to keep it running to this state all the time.

Very good point Mark. I had my engine dialed in, and added the EGT probes to assist in keeping it running good. I've never tried to tune by them, but they do help me to keep things together without melting expensive parts down...
