I definately agree on the volt meter. My 88 left me on the side of the road because the stupid brushes got stuck with dust and the alternator failed. NO WARNING until the LED DISPLAY started getting faint and by the time I realised it, I ended up having to make a good hike back to get to a phone.
I put a volt meter on my 1800 because, for some reason, honda still didn't and this bike is 20 years newer than my last one.
I'm ok with the oil light. I know the bulb works everytime I start the engine or shut it off but leave the ignition switch on so I can see the dash idiot lights.
