Thumbs up Placement of Kuryakyn Voltmeter

I have tried searching the forum, but I seem not able to find a thread that can show me a good placement for the voltmeter from Kuryakyn.

Therefore, I am asking for anyone that has pics of where they placed it. I have the small chrome one. The way that Kuryakyn made it with the double sided tape on the back is good however the way they make it the two wires coming out of it doesn't really give you the ability to make it flush.

Please please help with pics so I can get ideas to install it.

Thank you in advance for ALL your help.

Take of the handlebar clamp... mark the spot to drill a hole to run the wires through the clamp. put clamp back on making sure not to pinch the wires, then secure the Meter.

Also that spot sits too low meaning it faces down

Thanks..

I figured as much, but I was just searching to see what this "kuryakyn voltmeter" looked like and I saw that holder, so I thought I'd just link it anyway just in case.

I truly appreciate it. I am hoping to see some good pics of others that have had installed.

Thanks again.

I do not have the Kury volt meter, I do have a digital mounted on my headlight bucket with two sided stickey pad. Have had no prob with it, is still stuck just as tight as the day I stuck it on. The wires go into the headlight bucket thru the back so was no drilling ect involved. Pics can be seen in my albums. I added a simple on-off switch as I felt no need to look at it all the time.

04-3,200 miles bought July 2011 with 928 miles. Loaded with acessories to many to list here, see my albums for more details! I also make a custom tank bib specific for the 750 if anyone is interested, ck my albums for some pics.
