Looks great. Is it really "LCD"? It looks like a typical LED 7 segment display. Not that there's anything bad about that.

Subscribed with a plan to buy when I'm stateside again. Got a triumph with a knack for burning up R/Rs and not charging the battery.

Dumb question- does wiring the voltmeter to any wire which is hot when the key is "on" yield the same readout as wiring the voltmeter directly to the battery?
I think I'll be ordering one in the near future for my VFR.
Thanks!

Not necessarily. Check voltage at multiple locations and you may find it differs quite a bit.

polarity

I'm not sure I'll be mounting since this could be used to diagnose problems. What happens if you cross polarity?

When I really need it running is when the Gerbings gloves, jacket & pants are on. At idle & full heat, the stator is not making enuf juice so I'm draining the battery. Under way, heat & battery charging ( I assume since volts go >12.5). The Gerbings wire from the battery (inline fuse) should be a good place to connect this, inline would be ideal if a coupler exists in series. Seen anything like that?

What situations would you have blue & red wires separite?

Thanks, just ordered.

Don't know, haven't done it!

Yes, if it is downline of the controller and the controller uses pwm it may not work depending on the pwm frequency. The vm needs a steady state. This is another reason I would not recommend using it as a mobile tester. I would recommend this

installed on WR250R

Wired to brake light, shown checking battery voltage by Key ON, Kill switch in kill position so fuel pump doesn't prime & headlight is off. Only 3 LED lights are on (front turn signals, brake light) & license plate bulb. Just run engine & press brake to see stator output. Connect heated gear (&press brake) to see watt's used. Watt's - get it

FWIW when I first connected to 12V battery, it took a wicked long time for it to show voltage. Not sure why but it needed time to power up & works without delay now.

Need to attach meter to frame: silicone caulk, velcro, other?

I just ordered one. Looking forward to the install. I'm a little concerned about the security of your site. Your home page says yahoo has blocked your ISP from emails, then when I got your email acknowledgement but it's stamped with Warning: This message may not have been sent by: your email.

I'm assuming it's just the storefront you use, but would you please make me feel safe and secure?

Signed,
