I have the KuryAkyn on my Vulcan 750 and as Chad states, it is freaking bright. Very distracting at night. But it is a lifesaver!!! When I went through my dreaded stator failure coming home from the 2004 Gathering, this meter saved me some serious walking as I was able to watch the decline of my electrical system rather then just having it happen. Here is how I mounted it... http://www.bulldogsbike.com/KAvoltmeter.htm. I wired this one into the turn signal leads in the headlight housing with no ill effects and no noticable varation in readings on the bike. I went for simple...Has anybody tried either of these?
The window tint trick is popular as it does knock down the brightness and doesn't seem to affect the apearance of the chrome on the unit. Just be sure to cut out a hole for the light sensorI've got the KA led meter mounted much the same as bulldog. I also have found the brightness of the LEDs to be distracting at night. Was also thinking of using some window tint.
