Time will tell if it will hold up, will give it a small bead of black silicone around it.

Cheers. I though they were flat, so you needed to cut a hole.

I am away from my Zumo right now, so I can't check, but IIRC you press and hold in the upper right corner of the screen. I don't remember which screen you need have showing, but I am sure you can Google exact instructions.

Yes a hole is required, dremel tool and a sharp knife.

Wanted it as high as possible also so needed to trim a little on the back side also to make room for the M3 bolt, a little further down and a little more to the right and that might not have been required:



First wanted the bolt head rather then the nut on the outside but was to hard to get the nuts in place so turned it around.

Will add a small bead of black silicone around it later also.

any small meters out there?

I would prefer a much smaller meter and preferably a backlit lcd...these are all too big and too bright for night use for me....
I have done some googling with filters like...tiny...micro...mini...

One that plugs in the lighter socket eould be very convenient, but these are all pretty big...

I looked a long time for something smaller. I couldn't find anything, except for a few that had 3 LEDs: a red, yellow, and green, which doesn't really tell you a whole lot. Also, mine isn't any brighter than the stock instruments are at night, and red is low wavelength and really doesn't affect your vision much. If it were blue or something, that would be a different story.

Aouch what I installed is blue, to go with the blue S model bodywork I will have on the bike =)

Well still have a red and yellow I can change to (damaged the green during mockup).

Might add that the plastic around the headlight needed a little trimming also when installing it as high up as I did.

After hours of searching and looking at specs...

found these from Murata:
http://www.murata-ps.com/en/news/new-products/1967

Just need a holesaw and small file to install. -25 to 60 deg C operating range, fuse protected, fair accuracy claimed and the face at least is IP67 raintight. $45 is best price I can find.

Also found some 4 digit on ebay, 30mm wide package but not weatherproof, so would need some kind of mounting solution...have thought about putting it in my tankbag (my electrical accessory distribution center) where it would only be visible (i.e., annoying at night) if I look down.

...however...I am also considering these:

http://www.veisystems.com/products/d...o-l-voltmeter/

...thanks to ktm950se on the "oil sender options" thread.
They are larger (~2") but are two gauges in one, in this case oil pressure and volts. They are dimmable and have user settable alarms...really pretty fancy...I am waiting to hear back from company as to whether they are raintight and how much the pressure sender is but depending on color (Atomic Orange anyone?) they are around $90 for the gauge.
BTW...they do have single input gauges for about $25 less and have a wide range of input options...temps, AFR etc

stop press on the VEI gauges

cincy performance has the oil sender listed for $29. And also has a VEI voltmeter that is only 1 5/8" diameter:

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.

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