wiring help

I am going install a 12 volt rec, on my dash panel, going to run the wires from the battery, question I have is can I run my 2 wires off the rec for a volt meter or do I have to run 2 new wires from the battery for the volt meter. and maybe someone can give me a tip on how and what side do I run the wires to my dash panel, hope I don't have to remove the tank.

thanks
Chet

I found this one and a dozen others. I typed "install volt meter" in the Google custom search" box just below the tool bar on this site. I only say this so you can find the other ones for more pics etc.

You want to connect the voltmeter to a switched circuit so it isn't drawing power from the battery all the time. The heated grip connectors buried atop the radiator are one good choice. Be sure your 12v receptacle has a fuse in the positive wire, and run both positive and negative wires to the battery. Go ahead and take the tank off...it's good practice (and easier when it is low on gas).
