About this book
A motorcycle's electrical system can be daunting to even the most adept home mechanic. And yet, the more complex these systems become—and the more important to a motorcycle's function—the more useful, even critical, it will be to know something about them. That's where this book comes in with a user-friendly guide to understanding, diagnosing, and fixing the electrical systems and components that make a bike run . . . or falter. Veteran technician Tracy Martin explains the principles behind motorcycle electrical systems and how they work. He details the various tools, such as multimeters and test lights, that can be used to evaluate and troubleshoot any vehicle's electrical problem. And in several hands-on projects, he takes readers on a guided tour of their vehicle's electrical system, along the way giving clear, step-by-step instructions for diagnosing specific problems.

    Irony of the Iron

    0 1/5 Brian S. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weller SP40NKUS 40 Watt LED Soldering Iron Kit, Red/Black (Tools & Home Improvement) Initially I really liked this iron. Only owned for 2 months doing some light work and now won't heat. This seems to be a common problem with these. Cheap and disposable. Has a nice feature with LEDs to see what you're doing. The irony of the iron is that the LEDs last years...sadness. Now it's a corded low lumen flashlight with a 6 ft reach possessing blunt stabbing abilities.

    DO NOT USE WITH LEAD FREE SOLDER !! TIPS FALL APART VERY QUICKLY !!

    The iron itself is nice and the lights are great. I bought a large quantity of these irons to use for STEM education at a local school. In Maryland, we have to use lead free solder in schools. The tips for this iron only have nickel over copper plating which erodes extremely quickly (after about 20-30 minutes of use) when used with lead free solder. The whole front of the soldering iron tip just vanishes !!!!Good soldering iron tips have copper, nickel, then iron, and chrome plating on them to do a better job of protecting the copper underneath. For reference, I was using Kester K100 solder with #48 flux. I have been using this same solder with my Hakko professional iron with great results for a long time with no problems at all. This has been a disaster and I have had to scramble to go beg and borrow some real soldering irons for my next classes.

    Loved It

    I have the previous model of the weller 40w soldering iron and this is a definite improvement. At first I was a little concerned about the bulky front of the soldering iron but after using it those concerns are gone. In fact, the new Weller soldering iron seems better in every way. But let me take you through it one-by-one:The HandleThe hard plastics have a matt finish that feels nice and does offer a little friction and there is a rubber grip that makes holding it very easy. The rubber grip extends over the lip of the chunky triangular front of the handle. The triangular shape with the high friction grip of the rubber means the iron is safer. The previous one would roll easily just from the weight of the cable. The new design means it stays put where you leave it.Another improvement to the handle is the flexible cable protextor at the base of the handle which will help stop the cable from bending and wearing out the insulation.The... 5/5 Inna Tysoe (Sacramento) - See all my reviews, May 3, 2013

    Doing electrical every day, LOOK ELSEWHERE or prepare to buy a case full of tips. They crack after 20 cycles average.

    Okay, I don't leave many bad reviews, but once in a while a product I use all the time just really disappoints me. I deal with electrical all the time. The problem with this iron, which is an engineering problem with fast-heat irons and soft metals, in order to heat the element quickly the element must be a very low-density metal. This way, it heats up quickly, in under 20 seconds. However, the problem with this is that every time one heats and cools a metal it stresses the structure leading to cracking. Long story short after maybe 15-20 heat and cool cycles the element develops a crack and becomes completely useless I've been through maybe six elements. So, I thought if I just bought like four elements, that would be enough for a couple months. Not even close, after less than 20 heat and cool cycles (think 20 wires soldered, the element cracks and is garbage.) I use another one that is higher wattage and a different brand, that one lasted a lot longer, think months but even it... 2/5 A. MCCLAIN (Somewhere, MN) - See all my reviews, July 20, 2015

    Good product, works well.

    Totally pleasant experience! (almost) This solder gun is much nicer than I was expecting for the price. Heavy duty construction, functions exactly as described, heats up quickly, nice sturdy case, a bit of solder included.....all good things. Would have been 5 stars if not for the totally useless little light bulb that, apparently, is intended to light your work if you're soldering in the dark. I tried that. Even at night with no other lights it doesn't even light up the area at the end of the tip. What were they thinking? Be better if it wasn't even there.

    Simply put, it works, and does its job well.

    This basic does exactly what it should: it solders, and for a basic soldering iron, it does its job well. It's an essential tool for a beginner, basic hobbyist or for the toolkit of a seasoned pro to replace an older version (and yes, have owned a few over the years). It heats up to about the recommended temperature of 750 degrees F, and has a heat-resistant handle that has been a trademark of this tool for years.It includes three nickel-plated tips: a familiar chisel point, a pencil point, and a flat screwdriver tip. It has a stainless steel barrel, an improvement of the much older models that Weller used to make. And yes, they do last for years.Wish that I could say the same about the... 4/5 John Williamson (NYC & Bucks County, PA) - See all my reviews, August 10, 2008

    Good for General Consumer Use but, Not for Finer Electronics Work

    This is a good, inexpensive, consumer-oriented general purpose soldering iron for tasks such as automotive and household wiring and medium-sized electronic component work such as that antique Grundig reel-to-reel tape player you picked up at a yard sale. The included "soldering aid" tool is handy for straightening or bending wires and component leads.

    I am a little confused when the product description says you will be getting a 4-pack. To be clear, you will be getting a 4-piece set, but not a 4-pack. I think the seller would be wise to change the product picture to clarify that. Included in the set is:1: Soldering iron2: Rosin core solder3: Metal safety stand4: Cleaning sponge (which looked more like a piece of paper than a sponge)The soldering iron's temperature can be adjusted (392-842F according to instructions). The cord is long enough that you can plug it in and yet still work at a nearby table.The soldering iron heated up quickly and did a great job retaining it's temperature. I did not observe any variance over prolonged use. Instructions were clear, though pretty basic (all you need though, really).Overall I really like this soldering iron.

    Solid, cheap, but good.

    I bought this about a month ago to augment my personal toolkit I use in Iraq. I terminate a lot of radio cables, but need something that's fast to heat up and has a reasonable cool-down because of the random nature of when I need it.Pros:Heats up fast, and tells you when it's ready.Excellent ergonomics. Soldering a pin onto a cable (especially with a 90 degree connector) is a very precise task. The soldering guns we have (TK-101/GSQ component, Weller GT7As) have huge tips not suitable for the work, and holding the trigger is annoying. The shape conforms to your hand well and lets you get it into tight spaces like a 90 degree connector's pin well easily.Quick-change tip lets me separate the parts effortlessly in my toolbag so the tip sits in a pocket instead of the main area.Con:Only real one is personal preference; I don't like using the conical tips.

    A Soldering Iron For A Happy Electronics Hobbyist

    Soldered a few joints with this iron on a project not long after receiving it from Amazon. I definitely can recommend as I am well pleased with it's performance. The unique plug-in tip tinned and wetted solder readily. The short warm up time is impressive and in line with manufacturer's specification. I'm not totaly convinced this iron has all the power output of a 60 watt unit as the manufacturer claims, but it's at least equal to say a forty watt. That's not bad for the price, and be assured you'll have plenty of heat to flow most any joint nicely. Because of the 18 watt DC power requirement I was able to use a smallish battery powered portable DC to AC inverter unit to operate away from line power for a bit. Cool.I can only see two down sides to this product. Firstly, the non standard plug-in tips are relatively limited as to availability. Secondly, I am not too sold on the handle design.

    Lots of temperature options from 200 to 450 degrees F. Small and easy to handle! Great kit!

    Customer Video Review Length:: 3:04 MinsThis is a really nice soldering iron kit. The soldering iron itself is small enough that the handle fits my well enough that I don't feel like I am so far away from the tip that I don't have accurate control. I love that it comes with a variety of tips so I can use this for numerous jobs without having to run out and buy tips. I also appreciate the solder that comes with it. This is a perfect beginners kit - but also ideal for those - like me - who have experience with soldering irons but want something smaller.I wish it had a stand, however it does not and that is the only recommendation I would make for improving it. However you can buy a soldering iron stand separately and I do recommend one.The fact that the temperature of this soldering iron is adjustable makes it very practical. I do stained glass and my husband does jewelry. Sometimes we want more control over the temperature than a one or two temperature iron.

I have had no problems with this tool and really am so happy I was able to get it.I purchased this product for a reduced price to make an honest and unbiased review. 0, January 2, 2016

    Nice value.

    I just received this yesterday, so I'm basing this on initial examination. First: I purchased this retail - unlike ALL of the other reviews (so far) I have no connection or interest in the company. Second, I don't give 5 Stars unless the product is top of its class. (Maybe its my age, I grew up before 7 out of 10 kids got A's for any particular assignment they attempted). It arrived with only one or two obvious flaws. First the temperature control button is "loose" and, while it apparently works, it doesn't give me any confidence that it will survive very long. Second, the pen cap (blue in photo) arrived abraded, not a biggie but I had to scrape/cut the loose plastic bits off where it had been damaged. OK, on to my first (emphasis on first) impressions: There is no identification of the solder composition - so what temperature the iron should be set at is anyone's guess. The pen's plastic cap is friction fit, I suspect it may pop off when the solder is pulled out which would... 4/5 D. Nalepa (Great Lakes USA) - See all my reviews, January 3, 2016

    A high quality portable soldering iron.

    I have purchased several low cost butane irons and all of them were made cheaply. While nearly everything at low cost today seems to be made in China, some China production is truly worthless junk that will fail shortly & you with no replacement parts to be had from anywhere. My last $30 iron was one of these & it looked wonderful but the metal was so soft it deformed when hot and low pressure applied to the tip.I am a Ham Radio operator 300 feet from the ocean and have migrated from lead based solder to the lead free versions which will not oxidise as readily near salt water. This requires a higher heat as some of the wires are 14 gauge and the connectors are substantial. Being far from electricity the only way I could get the power to solder was to use a 1,200 watt inverter and power it from a motorcycle battery and then use my Weller electric iron to do the job. A lot of work and the battery did not last long. To carry a deep cycle battery out to the different antennas... 5/5 Gary Smith - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    One of my Favorite soldering tools

    I have owned my Portasol Iron for 15 years now and i have used it quite regularly, it is my preferred iron for quick jobs or field repairs. the iron heats fast and puts out good heat i have no trouble soldering Lugs on 10Ga wire (although slow have even done 6Ga). The unit also has nice one handed controls Just Turn gas on with your thumb, click the ignitor a few times and 15 seconds or so youre soldering, but shut it off when youre done and just reignite for the next terminal. if you lay it on the bench for a few seconds between soldering jobs it will overheat and damage the plating on the tip. My iron survived a few years in alaska kicking around in a tool bag. The temp (Gas Flow) adjuster also works good, the unit has a exhaust port on the side of the tip that used to annoy me because it would burn whatever you were working next to, I just make sure i am aware of where its pointing and have found it works great for shrink wrap heating from the exhaust so you dont have to change... 5/5 Barry A&amp;P - See all my reviews This review is from: Weller PSI100K Super-Pro Self-Igniting Cordless Butane Soldering Iron Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) I have owned my Portasol Iron for 15 years now and i have used it quite regularly, it is my preferred iron for quick jobs or field repairs. the iron heats fast and puts out good heat i have no trouble soldering Lugs on 10Ga wire (although slow have even done 6Ga).

    Does not contain solder

    This is NOT a soldering iron!

    C'mon folks, please use some common sense here.For those who complain and even remove stars because the kit doesn't include solder, there's a good reason for this.THIS IS NOT A SOLDERING IRON.This is a HOBBY iron. It is designed for woodburning, leather embossing, etc..Expecting it to come with solder is like buying a hammer and expecting it to come with a measuring tape.Yeah, they might be sometimes used together, but that's not the primary purpose of a hammer. This is not a perfect analogy I know, but you get the point I hope.This is a good quality iron for the price. If you need a more advanced (and expensive) woodburning iron, there are good choices here and elsewhere.If you need a soldering iron for electronics work, get one with a thermostatic temperature control and fine tips.I wish people would only comment on things of which they have at least some knowledge, rather than reducing the rating of an item... 5/5 M.
