    It is a bit bright might dim it down with some kind of paint or some some window tint or something:

    I went for red for that reason. Translucent or windscreen tint tape....look on the bright side, I cannot read mine in direct sun light. :1drink

    Have a red I can change to should I find it to annoying or mess this one up.

    Installed a Datel voltmeter and relocated the power outlet. Had to trim pieces here and there, but not too bad.

    Neat looking product.

    I am not usually an "idiot light" kinda guy. But I have been using a voltage indicator light which is graduated with 4 colors indicating current voltage level. Not as precise as a gauge, but does a better job of warning me of any problems. Don't have the brand but I got it from the Roadster Cycle guy when I bought my Mosfet regulator setup. I installed it in the center of dash spot where the ABS switch was.

    It was less than $24, if you click on the "Ordering Info" tab at the top of the page it will show you the prices. Also, shipping to the US about $5 and I received it a week.

    This meter has an internal battery that would need to be changed eventually. Don't mount it where you can't perform that operation....of course, I would have done that already ;-)

    This Koso Voltmeter is nice and low profile if you don't want to install a panel meter.

    I'm interested in seeing a trailtech meter mounted on an 07 990 or similar dash. (How well it fits)

    no, that drop is probably due to the load on the battery by the ignition/lights/etc

    Yep +1 for the KOSO meter...it's super slim and weather resistant, mounts anywhere. Have one on both bikes with no issues.
