    F650GS volt meter

    Has anyone installed a volt meter on the F800/650GS yet? I was thinking of installing one to keep an eye on my stator and don't want to fry my electrical system.

    Argus Battery Bug. Not a true volt meter, but it will meet your needs I believe.

    If you don't want a large meter, there are a couple of companies that offer small LED indicators. about 1/4 inch diameter.

    These go from red (discharge) to yellow (on the margin) to Green (charging...normal while running the engine). I have one of these,and like the small size ..and the important info.

    Sorry I've forgotten the source and the exact voltage ranges. Maybe Aerostitch??

    I have this one:

    http://f800riders.org/forum/showthre...mp-GPS-adapter

    Tells me what I want to know in one small LED:


    The LED shows system voltage level in 5 steps:

    Flashing Green - Voltage Above 15.25 VDC - This prolonged over-voltage condition can destroy batteries, especially gel-cells.

    Steady Green - Above 12.9

    Steady Amber - Above 12.6

    Steady Red - Above 12.1

    Flashing Red - Below 12 VDC - During this condition, if the engine is running, do not shut down until service can be provided. Restart of engine is unlikely. Reduce electrical load.
