I would not recommend the Kuryakyn LED. Mine stopped working after getting wet which I found happened to others.

I mounted above the speedometer dead center because the LEDs are bright and I could use the overhanging shelf to block the light if needed.

Ive been through two of those things on various machines, not very reliable IMHO. I then went to an LED device intended for micro-lights which seemed to fare better but I don't think that it was totally happy with my VRR system so I have nothing fitted to the SWing.

The Kisan meter is expensive but it has a few nice extra features too.
Kisan charging and monitoring system
In particular it tells you digitally both volts and amps, and integrates with their battery tender system.

Thanks Dan but these are two expensive for my taste.
Last year i bought there there Vectra Light for $ 80.00 and it lasted about 8 months. I am getting another one for Christmas but only because some one else is paying for it. I really like the way it lights up my reflective jacket when the turn light is on or the break light.I know people really see me coming or going

I bought and installed one of these many moons ago. For $25 it has been well worth the money. It is only weather resistant but has never failed even in the many downpours I have ridden through. Works well and wired off of switched power. I have a good amount of extras wired in and this makes voltage monitoring very easy. I wanted to monitor not only voltage but air temperature. It also has a built in alarm that sounds when air temp dips below freezing. I do not use the clock or timer side.


Left side is clock/timer ----- Middle: voltage ----- Right: temperature

I got through two of the Kuryakin gauges on previous bikes, as other folk have said they are not very reliable. I also had a microlight voltage indicator for a while ( a small LED device which changed from green thro' orange to red according to voltage) but I suspect that it was never totally happy with the Honda charging system. At the moment I have nothing at all and the Scoot seems to run OK without !

Since my Kuryakyn failed, I took it apart. It had very little ( almost none ) sealant... what ever sealent was left crumbled. The mother board was covered with a crystalline substance ... I am guessing from the water.

I switched to the ADVMonster digital volt meter which is water proof.

I to have 2 Kuryakyn LED volt gauges on my Helix and one did go bad . When I opened it up to see in side I found that water had got in side of it. When I got my silverwing I installed a volt and air temp gauge just like masscoot . You can see a picture of this gauge on his post in this thread . I have insalled two of them and each of them have gone bad do to water getting in side of the gauges . Over this winter I will try some other brand of gauges to replace the air temp and volt gauges that I hope are water proof .

Wow, I guess Bob and I have been pretty lucky with our Kuryakyn meters.
We have been in some pretty torrential rain. The company should look into there quality control if they haven't already.

I probably just jinx us. Rolling Eyes
