Yes right off the battery that is not mounted on the bike right now.
Accuracy for the panel mount voltmeter is 1% of full scale or .3v.
haha, you jinxed me. Headed out east last Sunday, not quite over to your side of the tracks, but a good 60 miles from home. I had put in a new REG/RECT and everything was great until I started working my way home, then I started seeing 15, 15.5, 16, 16.5+ Lucky I thought to switch off my Trick Dual Sport Kit and shut down all the DC power. Didn't burn anything up, especially the 12 O'clock labs LED processor board on the tail light. They had been kind enough to replace it the first time I had over voltage.
Got a new Ricky REG/RECT now and so far so good.
And finally got it installed on the KLR, a little snug, but I like it.
I just got my 2 surface mount units in the mail. Now to find the time to install on my 950A & 690R.
We tested one on the bench against our Leader precision power supply. 13.2V/13.2V
Thought I would post this here as well. I bought a cheepo volt meter but if it does not work out so well it is smaller than the advmonster meter so I can always remachine my mount to fit.
It need more modification and I need longer ss bolts which I will cut tonight. I will post pics when install is done.
That's funny, because I had the same thought, although I did buy this for my Ninja. When I added a GIPro to my CBR, I had a choice of many colors, and went with the white display to match my dash, which looks fantastic but washes out in the sun easier than other colors. Others report the Blue won't get washed out, but thinking along the same lines I didn't want blue because it looks like the high-beam indicator. That left amber, which matches the engine light, green matched neutral..... I ran out of colors. LOL, gotta laugh at ourselves sometimes.
I know BMW cars used to use red to illuminate their dash at night (maybe they still do, it's been awhile), so I suppose you just get used to it.
My readout is green. Not sure what it will look like in direct sun. I will find out today.
I found a nice place for mine on the 690.
Has anybody tried anti-glare tint over the top to see if that helps? I noticed it was near impossible to see when the Sun shine directly on it.
I didn't know that was a product. Do you have recommendations?
I'm thinking of the stuff they use for computer monitor to keep people from seeing your screen. Sounds like a research project for us.
Sent from outside my mind.
I can see green perfect in full overhead sun and all other directions.
Are the panel mount version, waterproof or water resistant too?

Received mine today for the BMW 1100R. Will mount it over the ABS lights which no longer are used as the ABS was removed when a chair was fitted. All good. Many thanks. Ian
Just ordered mine. After having the stator fried last weekend while on the road it is a little piece of mind for $25.
I cannot speak for the voltmeter, but the temp sensor appears to be less than waterproof.
I can say that about the voltmeter. It was on the bike for two days and an overnight rain turned it into a device that counts seconds.
The voltmeter and temp gauge are built in the same housing. Please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a picture of the unit with wacky display, would be happy to warranty. We made some significant improvement to the waterproofness of the panel mount meters.
i am considering installing one of these onto a DRZ400E.
If I connect it straight to the battery terminals ( non switched) then it will be constantly powered and potentialy flatten the battery (easy to do anyway)
What about hooking it to the horn curcuit ( switched) ?
Any other ideas?
This is a three wire voltmeter. It can be hooked directly to the source to be measured (your battery in this instance) and the third wire to a switched circuit (your tail light for example). The meter would come on with your tail light and read the voltage directly from the battery. No electrical draw when off
