Digital Motorbike ammeter – Installation on an F800 ST

With all my charging problems I have wanted to install an ammeter to see if the battery is actually charging, as you can only tell so much from the voltmeter.

I spotted a small cheap ammeter with a shunt, the was capable of 200 amps measurement.

It was also very thin and fitted in the center panel perfectly. I have now officially filled that free space!

The last picture shows my charging system generating 1 amp of charging current at idle.

  1. Hi, that looks like a nice job. I have a f650sc and would like to do something similar. Could you possibly tell me where you bought the meter and what the connection system is to the battery? I was thinking of looking for a wireless (electric field) type meter. Any help would be appreciated!
