Hi All,
If your into keeping an eye on your batteries voltage here is a small voltage meter that mounts in a single hole and is splash proof.

Only 2 wire are needed for hook-up with aligator clips for a quike look to see if your charging system is working.
I have one installed on my old 59 Harley's handel bars so I can monitor the voltage in the old 6 Volt battery system. Seems to work well and keeps me informed of what's going on with the charging system.

This meter has a 1/2" tall numbers and the whole unit is 1.71" wide, .84" tall, and comes with a rear seal. It can be mounted in the trunk with a small switch or just about any where.

Their is only one down side to this little meter, it's not back-lighted.

Here is a thread to the manufactures web site: check it out Shocked

This LED meter is backlight and dims at night http://www.digitalmeter.com/cgi-bin/webshop.cgi?config=configspc.txt

Here is a pretty picture installed on a SWing.

I purchased the meter and am planning on installing it in the same location.

Bill,

In your picture is that the small red screen on the handle bar cover? It looks nice.

Dennis,

Do you notice the voltage dropping much when you plug things in? And is the SWing a 13.4 volt and not 12v? Thanks.

Hi Bill,
Wow.....Now that's alot nicer than the one I used on the Harley. I hope you are planing on buying the Bezel. That would give it a more finished look. How are you going to hook up the wiring? :D

Jeff,
On my old 59 FLH Harley nothing gets pluged in. You have to be kidding me.

For me .... I like the look without the Bezel ... it makes it look like it was designed for it.

Underneath the front cowl

1) Near the base of the glove box is a grounding block
2) Cut into the upper portion of the glove box is a powerplate

Attach one wire to the grounding block and one wire to the powerplate.
That is why I love my wiring ... which I designed to make future additions very easy.

You can see in this picture: http://www.silverwing.org/cgi-bin/image_show.pl?img=%2fmwf%2fattach%2f60%2f12960%2fFront_power.rsz.jpg

Dennis,

That is a nice looking Harley. Do you still have it and how does it compare in power or speed to the SWing? It seems that the SWing is faster then some and slower then others.

Hi Jeff,

One of the things that I have learned in my life is not to hurt other peoples feelings, even on a forum like this one. People are important, not what they ride or what they own, but people and frendships.

Yes, I still own the harley. My den is full of trophy's that this bike has won over the years. But these trophy's are just things, that's all. It's hard to part with it after putting so much into it over the years but then again.... it is just a thing.

The swing is faster and easier to handle.... I think. But Old Red has alot more bottom end, raw, and I do mean raw power than the swing. I like the SilverWing better. From what I have herd, "you meet the nicest people on a Honda" I think that's true and hope that it will never change.

DennisB

P.S. Bill....Lots of luck on that!
