hello every body After a battery problem on the side of the road I had to have a voltage gauge to monitor the charging system, I looked and looked finaly one day killing some time in wally world I found a small digital volt gauge for 25 $ and it fits on the cowel of the dash. I looked and checked supplyers , so I thought this might be help full for others . PS I did have to purches a new alt. All ride safe!

Yes, definitely. Like I need another project, but that could be a good one.

Is the voltage gauge you purchased weatherproof?
For $39 + shipping you can get the Kuryakin LED Battery Gauge. Mine has held up through a hurricane, really .. it did. Once you get used to what the LEDs are telling you it only takes a quick glance to determine how your battery/alternator is working.
Available at Wingstuff. Here's a link, if it works.

I also attempted to upload a photo, hope it worked.

I have the Kuryakin one too. And, as stated, once you get use to the LED's it's a great product. No issues with it at all.

I too have the kury on both my bikes, but for me the style of the wing needs a vintage type gauge and thats why I asked for pix....

You guys are lucky- to buy a Kuryakin voltmeter here would cost around £44 about $66 , and although I can see the US prices on line ,but once shipping is added (if the supplier will ship here) it is almost the same cost as buying in the UK- it tends to be the case with any Kuryakin product..
Are we having fun yet?
