Question Kuryakyn voltmeter mounting question

Hi all. I just got a Kuryakyn volt meter. For mounting, all it has is the sticky back. I don't have the MCC dashboard for our bikes. Does anyone have any ideas on where to mount the thing?. I guess it would be possible to fabricate a clamp that could be attached to the handlebars and stick the meter to that. Anybody done that? Thanks for any and all replys. Pat.

Ya could make a dual purpose bracket.
Just a flat piece of metal connecting the speedo & tach (attached at the back of each, probably need longer screws) and then put the meter in betweem them (looks like it should fit)
That'd keep the tach/speedo from bouncing around and a mount for the meter.

I drilled a small hole in the top/back of the headlight bucket for the wires to go through and mounted it there. It's easily viewed between the speedo & tach, and the wiring is concealed.

Does anyone have pictures they can post of the volt meter location and mounting? I have not done this mod, but am considering it and at this point, I am clueless.

Thanks!

I mounted mine on the bolt cover for the bar clamps. It turned down enough that it is visible but the LED's do not distract you @ night. It is an almost perfect fit and the chrome blends right in.
