I ordered this item after reading all the reviews (and having to replace my battery). After all said and done , I'm happy with it. I was however very disappointed in the instructions, because there were none. I have a '14 wing and all the reviews talked about 05-10 wings, so researching the instructions became tire some. The instructions are a PDF on the website, but are simply useless. After installing the gauge I learned the back post was touching my radiator and the wire coming off the post was resting against the radiator. I had to bend the wire terminal to the light to make it clear the radiator and I had to reposition the hot wire as not to rest on the radiator, it barely fit. I ordered the recommended t harness so I would have plug and play. After finally locating the factory plug on the clutch side, I spent an hour trying to figure out how to use it. Now you're probably thinking I'm a moron by now, but I have done 12v electric work for years. But the fitting did not match up but one way, in which using that way reversed the polarity going to the meter. I finally figured they had to have screwed it up when manufacturing the t harness, so I took the wires out of the plug and swapped them around to achieve the proper connection. Just a good thing I was paying close attention. If you order the t harness, watch closely that black goes to black and red goes to red. Once I corrected those issues, works and looks great.
Please see my previous review. I contacted Wingstuff and talked to the manager, Rodney, and his primary concern was to make certain I was taken care of. Wingstuff immediately sent me a new voltmeter as well as the new wiring harness. I returned to the dealer who had originally installed the voltmeter and the voltmeter and back light are now working fine. The dealer, Champion Powersports completed the additional installation at no charge. Thanks to all. I would suggest that special comments be made relative to the installation of this unit on 2010 Goldwings.
Was unable to install the volt meter on my 2010 Goldwing. The red plug referred to in the instructions was far out of reach. Had to have a dealer remove the body covering engine etc to install. Additional cost was $120 and the meter is not lighted as shown in the ad.
I have had this Volt Meter With Back Panel on my bike now for about a year. This is an easy install, the panel/meter look factory installed. The meter is easy to read day or night with nice red back lighting. My only minor issue is that the meter is apparently dampened electrically and takes a few seconds to start indicating, not an instantaneous response like I would have expected. I would recommend this product!
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
