Question I Need (Want) A Good Clock

Ok I miss the clock I had on my zuki. I am unable to wear a watch due to a skin condition and I would like a way to tell time both day and night. Anyone have any ideas?

I took a digital clock from a old toyota truck and it just needs a constant hot, a negative and a switched positive for night illumination. I also have a digital clock from an old mazda rx7.

Thanks those are some nice clocks but...































I'd have to glue it to my face shield to see it. I wish they made them larger.

I'm just a blind ol' fart, half the time I drive by braille.

Couple of months ago, OReillys auto parts had some stick-on analog clocks about 1 1/2 inch diameter. Not lit tho.

Not sure if quality is an issue with you, but I managed to find digital clocks at a local "dollar store".

$2.00, adhesive backing (which needs a little more tape) and colour matched to my 2006 Red/silver KLR.

So I bought 2 of the them and the first one is still going after a year and half.

The numbers are large enough to see,,,,,,, just mounted above the gauges.

Sorry no photo...

or you could go to you local Harley store as I have seen clocks and thermometers there. (HD....$100.00)... nice chrome,
