Signal Dynamics Heads Up Display is what I believe you are taking about. You can get them direct from Signal Dynamics. They are great to work with.

I have this one. I think I bought it where I bought the Mosfet R/R ( that I didn't use...). These work great because they are also a warning light in addition to a true voltmeter ( the led changes color and flash rates as voltage varies, you cannot miss the flashing red when voltage is low ). That said, if you don't wire it directly to a circuit with a relay and instead just tap into a switched "hot" wire in the fairing you might not see the "green" light but will see the amber for marginal voltage. There is just too much voltage drop thru all the circuits and switches up there. It is that sensitive....

I have this one. I installed the led just above the silver logo above the gas tank. Works well and is very minimalist.
