    I believe that one will be far too small. You need a 50mm, or 2" one. This is the one I put on my bike, although not the same seller:

    Whatever you get it NEEDS to be digital.
    Colored lights by themselves are useless.
    And most analog gauges won't move the needle enough to get your attention; a drop of .5 volts can be SIGNIFICANT.

    I also have the one from ebay. I put it in the old temp guage spot. It is nice to know how voltage is doing since just a little voltage drop can leave you sitting.

    I put the voltmeter on the right and the clock on the left. I used the power that was there for the other gauges to power them.

    Don't you need a temperature gauge? Sorry I'm a newbie...

    If you remove BOTH the gas gauge and temp gauge, they will appear on your bash, digitally.

    I just quickly looked for one on e-bay, there may be chaeper prices, but this is the clock I bought, and I am very happy with it.

    Does not say much about heat protection on motorcycles, should be easier than mounting a volt meter in dash

    I installed this one on my 2011 RT on the right side after removing the original water temp gage. I also installed their digital water temp gage where the old fuel gage was. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Default Voltage Meter

    Hi, I installed Red LED Intellitronix 9015R gauge, back in 2012 I believe, along with a Intellitronix 9014R red digital Oil pressure gauge in the dash next to the cluster on opposite sides . Intellitronix has a bright red display which is dimmable. I have tried others, this display is readable in bright sun light.
    The DVM voltmeter I found is accurate to .1 volts and usually displays between 13.8 to 14.1 during driving dependent upon lights that are on and brake lights. The accuracy of mine I verified with my DVM fluke and bench DVM which is in calibration.
    The GS & RS Spyders I believe the magneto is 750 watt while the RT is slightly larger capacity, both are controlled by a shunt regulator which clamps the voltage to about 14.1 on my GS.
    eBay and JC Whitney I know are a couple of sources..
    Ps the motor at idle above 13.0 volts. Yes, when you turn on the key after the Spyder has been parked for several days with no battery maintenance charger connected, it will probably be about 12.3 to 12.5 .
