    Voltmeter worth having?

    Hi all was looking for little mods to do and see some people have a voltmeter. Are these worth having? also where would you wire it to? if straight across the battery then it would need a switch. I have my usb socket wired to the hot of the brake light switch if I recall, could it use the same connection or would it mess with the electrics/not get a proper read?.

    Re: Voltmeter worth having?

    If you have a dual headlight mod and use heated gear, it’s worth installing a voltmeter, as the FZ6 charging system doesn’t have a lot of excess charging ability. I’ve used cheap $5 ebay ones on a few bikes. Here’s pics of the first revision of my install
