Two up on an air cooled 230 4 stroke, oil temp won't be your problem, not getting run over will take some effort though..

I think (but not 100% sure) that the Honda SL has a threaded hole blanked off which can take an aftermarket oil temp guage.
I like oil temp guages on aircooled engines. Particularly if they are off road. The head temps are very dependant on the temp of the oil running through them.
