ck auto parts store- they have a board of gauges for everything, in whatever type display method you want

direct number for volts is better than JUST blocks of light- having both is very cool and attention getting

Reminder to wire direct to battery for accurate volts reading. Some install a switch to disconnect when bike is parked.
Others keep a battery tender hooked up, while John says its never been a problem to leave volt meter powered,
as long as you ride the bike occasionally!!

They've gone up considerably in price. Must be selling like hotcakes.

It's kinda interesting (unless you're in the market for one!) to watch the guy's Ebay prices going up on the GL15000 gauge panels! Last spring, a forum member mentioned that the panels were again available from an Ebay seller. I, along with several others, ordered one (or more) from him at the GREAT price of $19.00 , which even included free shipping! I'll bet he sold several hundred at that price, however, after much discussion and the word spreading, the seller went up to $25.00, still pretty reasonable. Well, about the middle of the summer, he upped the price to $31.00, and probably still sold several units. A few weeks later he went up to $35.00, still free shipping. NOW, he is up to $35.00, PLUS $7.50 shipping! Anyone care to guess what they'll sell for at Christmas?????? I only wish that I had several shares of stock that was going up that quickly!! BUY A PANEL NOW, WHILE YOU CAN AFFORD IT!

Your link is for the shiny black one. For the matte black, unpainted one:

Still $25. I bought a couple, may do something with one after I move into my new house this Winter.

Check my link below, they are still $25 if you want a plain, unpainted black one. With FREE shipping.

The $35 ones are pre-painted if you have a bike with funny colored plastic.

I have had the same Firecreek voltmeter/outside temperature gauge on my last 2 1500s. Bought around 15 years ago. Seems like it was well over $100.00 then. Very durable. Only problem I have had with the unit was the sensing wire leading to temperature gauge broke. A call to Firecreek got me a new wire at any length I wanted. Good service there. Saved me lots of trouble this summer when my alternator went out. Going through a small town near here on a Sunday, I noticed the voltmeter was reading 10 volts. Lucky I will carry a extra alternator when on trips with the Kwik Kamp. Only thing I forgot to pack was the 7MM socket. .Found a person willing to loan me one. On the road again in about an hour and a half. I have my voltmeter hooked to the spare terminal in the fuse box so it isnt on all the time.

As I recall back in the day, the panel sold for $55 and with their led gauges $200, still one of the most function accessories ever made for the big 6 banger.
