Volt Meters

Postby Dayta » Fri Dec 28, 2012 11:34 am



I'm considering getting a volt meter for my 96 1500I. Searching around on the net, Kuryakyn has an LED one that I'm looking at. I also found the same one a bit cheaper on other sites. Has anyone used the Kuryakyn one or recommend a good one and on what site ?

Thx Phil,

I haven't ran across the battery bug. Maybe I'll do a search to find it and see its specs.

My apologies I forgot to post the link....the only reason I didnt get the bug for the GW was I didnt have a place to put it so I could see at a glance....good luck on our choice

I got a Koso LED voltmeter for Xmas. It looks good but I haven't had chance to fit it yet.

I found these voltmeters online via Hong Kong for $.99 each. Added a 7805 regulator for the 5 volt requirement (another dollar) and it works fine..

I have used the Kuryakin meter on 2 bikes and like the way it works.
