After having had an alternator fail on my 1500 Wing I put a different style meter on it. So when I purchase my 1800 Wing this was my first purchase. I mounted it on the right lower fairing where the Nav controls would be. It is very visible in all types of lighting conditions. I will never ride again without a volt meter!
As I just installed this last weekend, I can't speak to its durability. It was a snap to install although the leads are super thin. It is easy to read at a glance although direct bright sunlight can wash out the display.
