Voltmeter Gauges

Looking at getting a voltmeter gauge...would like to see some of your setups.
Let me know where u got yours and how/where u mounted it. Id like to have it up by the dashboard.

Theres alot on ebay and im not sure which to get..but it has to be waterproof.

Or see "Dash Project" in my sig link.

This of course means you'll have to make a dash panel....

Here's mine. It does sit behind a windshield but its been fine for several years.
Keep in mind that thread is quite old & I've changed windshields & such.

Have this one mounted on the handlebar clamp. Wired to the battery, with the ground going through a toggle switch on the frame, between seat and left side cover. I slide my finger under there to hit the switch.

For now I have the wire just dropping down over the bar clamp and under the tank, but the gauge has a hole in the back if I want to run the wire into the bar clamp and keep it more out of sight.

Mounts with sticky back, is waterproof, and accurate. The blue light for 15v lit up when the battery terminal got a bit loose. Stays at 14-14.5v normally. I've left the gauge on for a few days before and didn't kill the battery.

I too have it connected thru a relay (my Spark Plug Coil Mod Relay).....which allows the meter to read the battery voltage at all times w/Ignition switch on.

About 6 months ago I couldn't find a time/temp/voltage meter that I liked so I got this caseless one off ebay and had my machinist gin up an aluminum case. While not water proof the control buttons are very tight to the case and under the wind screen, No problems, even at the carwash so far. Voltage is reading high because I just finished a ride and the battery is still settling.
