    Dash Voltmeter!

    Afraid to chop your dash up to preserve your rare Buells integrity in the museum in 2099? Not to fear, Cooters here!

    Blue LED's. Face is cut and white base is clearance, ready to put in your dash. Split the dash, 2 small screws for the light housing, then swap it with yours and put the leads in the dash light socket. Bam.

    This is what it looks like installed in your dash.

    You should 3D print those parts and sell them.

    Not a bad idea. Beyond my skill level for now, but I'm looking into a scanner set up!

    Even though its a very easy cut to make I understand the trepidation of hacking the only part you got. This way you could go back to non-voltmeter easily

    This is very slick.

    Being oil/air cooled, has anyone added an oil temp gauge, unless there is one already there that this new guy doesn't know about.

    I have been running a Trail Tech TTO Oil temp Gauge on my GPz for years, tapped it into the oil pan.

    I didn't invent the voltmeter mod. It's been done for ages. But there is this really really cool and smart guy on this forum who did this trick digital temp display install. I hear he's super good looking too

    You don't really need to know the actual voltage, you just need to know if its out of spec but these are way cooler than just a red 'battery' light:

    I had been looking for those for a long time and my Google-fu failed me. 34nineteen found them and I thanked him by drinking all his beer

    Seeing as the Lithium we use is real dead I ordered a monitor from Gammatronixltd. Thanks. I was a tiny 8 cell with 4 years on the clock.

    You mean a Li-Ion Battery? I didn't know they sold those.
