A sturdy little unit, all metal, great quality; I bought it for my KZ1100 LTD, and it fits well on the instrument cluster. Very versatile mounting options, and it keeps good time. Highly recommended, and as usual, great service and quick shipping. Revzilla has become one of my 'go to' sources for bike accessories.

So far so good. It's made it through the frigid winter of central Florida without fail. I was worried the moving parts may freeze up on me due to the ambient temperatures but she pulled through. This thing's a real fighter and thus far have nothing negative to mention. I used the Velcro applicator as opposed to the bracketed mount.

Was great until it fell off of my bike
Had one for about three years. Lost it on the way home when the small spot-weld holding the bit where the screw for the bracket... er, screws into, gave out (see attached photos). Likely from excessive vibrations, as my route has regular long-ish rough stretches.
Still like it enough to consider getting another one, but I'm currently looking around for a more solidly built one. If I do go back to this, I'll likely either mount it with the included velcro, or heavy-duty double-sided tape, or drown that bit with steel epoxy.
Also, its hands lose their luminosity quickly (never noticed it last longer than an hour). Not much of an issue, unless you do most of your riding when it's dark. Otherwise, the clock itself is solidly built, and it only lost time once or twice in the time I've had it (during long stretches wherein I didn't ride at all).

Love this little clock
This is exactly what I was looking for. The analog clockface is classic and easy to read. I don't actually know why I care what time it is when I'm riding since I only ride for fun, but maybe it's so I'll know when my husband is starting to wonder when I'll ever come home....

Great Clock, Great Price
Excellent quality, and does not vibrate even in higher RPMs. Easy to see hands. Incredibly easy to mount, with two options for multiple placements.
The problem is during nighttime riding, the hands stay lit for maybe 2 hours before the glow charge dissipates and it becomes incredibly hard to see. Only was a problem on one or two late rights I had. Still an excellent clock, and plenty cheap for the high quality.

Simple installation and works great!
Installation was very quick...less than 3 minutes. It easily attached to the clutch box. I added a little blue Loctite and have had no issues. Overall, the unit isn't the most attractive on the market, but it's very functional and costs significantly less than clocks that mount directly to a handlebar.

I have been looking for a quality bike clock for over 30 years. .
Finally no more commuting to work trying to see my wrist watch between glove and jacket. And it is solidly constructed, keeps time, has a japanese movement and reputed 4 year battery life. Easy to fit hardware and good instructions. Buy several before they stop making them.

Not bad at all
Ok so I received this item yesterday and got it mounted (takes about 2 mins) and it seems nice and sturdy. I did use some blue loctite to ensure that the vibrations of the bike won't losen the screw. Only downside in my opinion is that I wish if you ordered the black one that the mounting bracket would be black as well. Think I am actually going to take mine off and paint the bracket black. Anyway it seems to be a nice product but only time will tell how it holds up to the elements.
