I just finished adding this little gem. I'll be interested to see how it holds up.

I had a digital one on my 77 and as RBGERSON said, they are very hard to see in the sunlight.

I have a similar one on my 1999 CBR1100xx . Bought from China off "Fleabay". Mounte with zip tie in front of clutch reservoir and it's been on for 3 years. Put it on when I bought the bike at a 23000 miles and she's got 91000miles on now. Hasn't failed yet. Had one on my 1998 VFR, same deal, for over 8 years before I sold the bike. Rock solid for an investment of about $5 bucks. Picture is one on VFR which I purchased with 5000 miles, (112,000mi).

Hey guys, thanks for all the feedback! I'll give this unit a try and if it proves to be hard to see and/or craps out, maybe I'll try to tackle that in-dash installation. :geek:

I tried Digital and it is invisible in bright sunlight,

so, I installed a marine analog voltmeter that is guaranteed to be waterproof.
so far, it has survived a few thousand miles of hellish rainy rides.

Or one of these, they come in three different colors, and look like they might come out fairly easily:
