Cheap Volt Meter!

Postby JimVonBaden » Tue Jun 30, 2015 10:29 pm

Since I was dumb and did not order the Computer Pro, I have no volt meter. So, for fun, I created one that plugs into my Powerlet on the dash. This will work on any bike with a dash mounted Powerlet, so it applies to nearly all bikes potentially.

$3.59 delivered volt meter, waterproof.

I got two in case I messed up the first one.

An old Powerlet plug soldered to the volt meter:

Some rubber hose to seal it.

Installed and in use:

Works great. I will try it on my commute tomorrow.

You can use it for troubleshooting any bike with a Powerlet.

Ha! that's the same unit i got to put on CB125 to help trouble shoot my electrical problems (now seemingly solved). display washes out in direct sun but with a bit tape to shade it works great and when compared to my volt meter seems to be pretty accurate.
