My volt meter solution.

This what I am going to use for a volt meter. The socket is an all weather power socket. The meter plugs into a car cigarett lighter plug. I just have to come up with a way to water proof the volt meter. I am thinking that clear silocone will do the job.
Power socket 14$
LCD volt meter 13$
plus tax if sold in Texas. LOL

I was thinking of using one of those too. But instead of using the lighter socket, I was just going to remove the socket plug of the meter with a dremel and wire it direct.

Let us know how it works for you.

The plug has a good mounting surface. I am going to try the double stick tape. If that does not work I will go with super glue to the wind shield. I don't think it will have a light for night use. If the lights dim, there is a problem.

Been using one for a couple of years, direct wired into one of the front running lights (broke off plug and added wire). No complaints

meter installed.

Here is a picture of my set up. I have not ridden the bike any after installation so I don't know how it is going to react on here. If there are any kinks I will work on them and report.

that's what I was thinking, too...check out the small clear suction cups for the windshield...I think target has them near fasteners for hanging pictures, etc.

Does anyone know where I can find that meter online?
