    Voltmeter for 2012 1200GS

    What item/brand is anyone using to monitor charging.......with winter heated gear, aux lights, etc.....I'm curious about what the status is, even
    though I'm good about leaving on battery tender after rides

    FWIW: I have an Escort Passport 8500 mounted in view. It is programmed to always display alternator output voltage as well as detect radar strength when zapped.

    Just a thought.

    I have one of the Aerostich volt meters mounted to my R1200R and it works great. I have it set up to come on when the key is turned on. I it small and can be easily mounted. Below is a link to it.
