Volt meter
« on: October 07, 2017, 05:50:43 PM »
After my recent probs with with the 400C I was looking for a volt meter so I could monitor the voltage while riding
couldn't find anything suitable so decided to make my own
some 3mm led's
12v Zener diode
13v Zener diode
400 ohm's Resistors
Red led will light when more than 12v in the system and the green when more than 13v
all mounted between the indicator warning lights, which was handy as there are 2 moulding marks in the right place & 3mm.
Looks brighter in the last pic, that's just my camara
