which to choose.....

Hey guys...
I am looking for a volt meter to monitor the battery..
i have seen the ones on ebay that use leds and the digital ones...
none seem that suited to the weather and vibrations of a motorcycle...
Has anyone found a good one? thanks...

There are several mechanical gauges on this thread.

EDIT: Some overlap with the above link, but some new info included too.

This is the link to the single light LED that VOIP Doc installed.
It has updated specifications for voltage readings, making it more useful for our bikes. Take a look.

I`m pretty sure there is a thread with a Kuryakyn multi LED gauge on here too, but haven`t found it yet.
Here is Daniel Meyers installation on his Valkyrie.

Many internal dashboard based voltmeters will be fine with a gauge cup and little silicone sealant. That means lots of options to choose from depending on what look you want (i.e., match existing gauges, electronic look, etc.). Spend some time searching the picture gallery on this forum for the look you're after, then Amazon or Google for the specific parts.
