My experience (on my '08) was that I bought the WRONG volt-meter, as mine has WHITE labeling on the face [in addition to the actual V reading which IS WHITE], making it quite difficult to read UNLESS I shade it w/ a glove.

Get a color that reads in sunlight!

Exactly...red or green? (The red would match our "orange-ish" instrument glow).

In fact what I REALLY recommend is this:

Head's Up? Voltage Monitor - Signal Dynamics

It ONLY requires a 1/4" hole in your dash, and reads in green when your voltage is good!

Here's my '15 dash



and here's the location of that 1/4" LED



while here it is, illuminated (red 'cause I didn't want to start it).



When your engine is running it SHOULD always be GREEN.

I went with the green and don't regret it. Other than just the most extreme sun right at my back the only thing Ive noticed is I might have a problem between 5th and 6th. But the other gears I could make out just fine. But in that case color wouldn't have mattered a bit. Either would have been hard to tell.

which ever color you choose, you will find it easier to read in sunlight, if you apply a small piece of window tint on top. It makes it much easier to read the numbers.

I would personally go with green, but I also have a green bike. For myself I would get whichever color is closest to my bike color.

Green has more lumen, or at least emits more in your eyes center bandwitdh of light spectrum. Thus more visible.
But seriously, get a voltmeter, not a useless gear indicator.

Got a 2017 so I won`t need one, but if I did I think I like the green better.
