It would be connected to switched power, so shows system voltage, dependent on where it is connected up. The USBs will be able to be used whenever the ignition is switched on, as will the voltage readout. I wouldn´t connect one to read all the time, will drain the battery. I´m not sure how much more LEDs draw than LCD (which are normal on clocks on modern bikes). My experience is that bikes with permanent LCD clock need maintenance charging, like in winter over here where the bike sits for months.

Handy Chris but I don't need the USBs.
Not sure what is going on with the RR, fired it up yesterday and the RR output was reading 14.6V. So far it's been 14.6, 14.9 and 14.4 all at around 4000rpm.

Should be the same, once things settle down 1-2 min after starting.  Either a poor connection on voltage sense wire (if your RR has a separate line for this) or ditto on feed to battery....which is where you had a fuse melt before?  Maybe check your earth (sorry - neutral for the pedants) connections.
Or the battery / RR is on its way out.

Thanks Rob
No voltage sense wire, wish there was one. I'll recheck the earth [always been earth to me] connections again.
And check the RR output again after the motor has run as you suggested.
Apart from that the Motodd is running fantastic!!
