Cool Installed on all my bikes II

Something else I put on a bike if it doesn't already have some indicator of battery/charge condition. A battery monitor light. I like to know what my battery is doing since the days of a built in kickstarter are long gone. Never had that much luck with push starting. I don't know the brand of the light pictured below, but I have bought several over the years and they have all worked fine and lasted the length of my ownership. I like them because they are essentially invisible; not a big gauge that you have to find an acceptable mounting place for.

Me too. Got one on both my T300 bikes. Can't remember the exact sequence of warning colours that the monitor shows, but green is good and a sequence of red flashes shows under charging between no charge at all and 12.25v. Green and red alternating shows over charging at 15.2v. Reassuring bit of kit from http://www.sparkbright.co.uk/index.php in the UK.
