Voltmeter mounting solutions

Any mounting solutions for the voltmeter on 1 inch bars?I have a V Star 650 Classic,and I'd like to mount the VM on the bars.I don't like having to look down at my tank mounted dash.It's about useless anyway.The riser area is currently occupied by GPS mount,charging station, and soon to be a tachometer.

Thanks for the pics and vids

You have got to be happy with that setup, night into day

Under the handlebar, between the top triple and the handlebar. Looks like there is enough space, either side of the handlebar mounts or in between.

That's where my clock is located.I really need to get updated pics.I was hoping to find a mount and that would work right in front of the master cylinder.I may have an idea.

I have mine mounted to the side of my master cylinder. Out of the way yet still visible when I need it.

I think I am going to try that when I get mine but I don't think I have enough room.My idea was a simple flat plate that bolts on with the master cylinder clamp.I may have to file down the clamp so it will tighten up with the plate in there.

Love the lights I got for my Tiger a couple years back... Any chance you can get me some chrome ones for my Bonneville?

Great to hear you are happy with the lights.

I understand black is the new chrome

Ordered my lights on Thursday, received them on Saturday. From Florida to California. Thats FAST!!

Unfortunately I forgot to use the "Inmate" promo code when purchasing, but oh well, I'll remember next time!

Got the lights all mounted up, now I just have to figure out how to wire them up... I'm not very good at wiring...

Shitty cell phone pic below.

I'm looking for asymmetrical bundle LED lights as fog/drl light, all things here would blind in normal trafic and I hate that myself, so won't use the same blinding lights. Is the nothing with asymmetrical refector/lens?

Sticky tape worked for mounting my voltmeter. Still holding strong.

I had an unfortunate event today. I was riding on a gravel road behind someone and found my right Model 60 lens smashed. :-(.

I see replacements are $10.

I also see there are some protection stickers offered? How well do they work?

The xpel lens protection works great. Originally developed by 3M for aircraft windshields, it goes on easily and takes a hit, it becomes permanent in around 15 minutes after application.
