Happy Birthday to me

My ADvmonster voltmeter came in the mail just before my birthday.
Here is my install. Very simple, but effective. It is stuck on with velcro.
The voltmeter is accurate to my multimeter.
It is still winter here in Canada, but I had to take the bike out and go around the block just to make sure everything works good.
I recommend this voltmeter.

I installed one on my Super Enduro to keep an eye on potential V/R issues as well as other toys. I also bought one for my freind's Uly (since he has had V/R issues) and a friends Versys (no reason, he just likes farkles).

On the SE, I ran the blue wire to acc-1 (non switched) and the red to the acc-2 (tied in with the hand warmers, switched) so that I get as clean of power signal as I can (just interrupted at the fuse box) but still switched.

Rubberized super glued in place, with the wire ran through the stock drain underneath. I think it came out pretty clean.I considered two sided tape but where I wanted to mount it, I didn't think it would work well.

I had a little idiot light which wasn't too my liking as the colors of the light indicated that charging wasn't correct. I prefer the exact voltage and the light left a little guess work as to the battery condition.

Here's the location on my DRZ. I used double sided tape on the speedo. Nice out of the way location and just behind the fairing and in the shade.









Evaluation-

I had the LED volt meter for a little while, and just very disappointed in the visibility . I can see it in the garage with lights on, but outside during partly sunny conditions, visibility is nonexistent.I moved the meter even further behind the fairing, plus painted the back side white, an the LED's still are very dim. I've since pulled it off and gone back tot he idiot light volt meter, which can be viewed in direct sunlight. I really like the idea of seeing the exact voltage, but this doesn't do the job for me.

Installed mine over the weekend on my Aprilia RSV1000R.
Used some 3M double-side foam trim tape.
I'm very happy with it. At first I thought it was too dim and hard to read in the daytime but at night it's perfect and I wouldn't want it any brighter.
Here's a cropped night time helmet cam frame grab:

What is the actual accuracy of the unit? It reads to +/- 0.1 V but is it real? My speedo reads to +/- 1 mph but it is actually 5 mph off from actual.

2% of full scale (28v) or about .5 volts.
