Default Voltmeter-Datel

I've used the rectangle Datel voltmeters before, now they have a waterproof round unit, but, in red only.

An important thing to have if you're a big Farkler. Don't want to run out of available power just because you have your PIAA 910's and all your heated clothing all running at the same time.

Don't ask me how I know.

Nice, I just looked them up. I like how they attach via a nut rather than the brass thingy on the back side that the rectangular Datels use.

I best be having one.
My rectangle one is mounted in the left pocket door.
Maybe I'll run two, I have two of everything else.
Now where did I leave that 1.2" drill bit?

In your left pocket, with the other 1.2" drill bit?

Yep, agreed. The two brass thingies I put on other bikes looked sketchy so I used silicone beads to make sure.

Mine is held in place with a Bezel and adapter plate that screws it to the pocket lid.
Exact cut with the trusty Dremel and some very small machine screws is all that is required.

When mounting the rectangular Datels, I prefer the brass clip on the back rather than the bezel because I like the flush mount look.

Mounting on black it looks good but the one on my Wing is mounted on a polished aluminum plate and it gave it a more finished look.

You do not cut into body panels on a 38 year old restored bike.
The plate can be removed as if it never happened.

I don't screw with cutting body panels to mount the Datel on my ST. I just velcro that puppy on in a spot where it's easily seen with a quick flick of the eyeballs. The dash shelf I have allows me to velcro just about everything I need to it.
