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. Oh joy. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, June 27, 2014

    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 "Inna Tysoe" (Earth) - See all my reviews, May 3, 2013

    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. All of the tips (MT1 thru MT3) that Weller offers only have nickel plating so there is no real solution to this problem as of... 1/5 Melinda - See all my reviews This review is from: Weller SP25NKUS 25 Watt LED Soldering Iron Kit, Red/Black (Tools & Home Improvement) The iron itself is nice and the lights are great.

    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. Woulda got 5 stars and maybe the gun would be even less expensive. Still.......It's a GOOD PRODUCT. WORKS WELL.Addendum (a month later). Have used the solder gun for a lot of little jobs, continues to please, still works well. The useless little light bulb stopped doing anything at all the second time I used the tool.

    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. If you can, I suggest you pick this up at Wally-World - you'll pay local sales tax but, you'll save shipping costs and time.The Weller brand from Cooper Handtools is outstanding. [...] But, make sure you understand that this particular kit - the SP23LK - is a consumer-grade item. For finer electronics work and somewhat advanced tasks such as "through-hole" and "surface mount technology" soldering and desoldering, the operating temperature of this iron is much too high and the included and available tips are much too large.)

    0 4/5 Amazon Customer "dobbz" (Minnesota) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Weller SP25NUS Standard Duty LED Soldering Iron, Red/Black (Tools & Home Improvement) Weller is pretty much the defacto standard in Soldering Irons and you really can't go wrong with one of their products. This is a nice handy unit for quick electronic soldering. The Medium Duty unit may be a bit hot for sensitive electronics. The only issue with this iron is the tip is not removable (as far as I can tell anyhow) where the Medium Duty has the replaceable tip letting you swap in finer points for small projects.UPDATE: The tip 'is' removable. Unfortunately it uses the 'screw-on type' tip vs the solid tip with a set screw as with the more powerful iron. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, April 27, 2014

I bought this one to replace the old one I had owned for about 8 years. It finally quit working after being dropped a couple of times. It heats quickly and will readily solder up to 8ga wire. I have also used the cutting tip to weld plastic and cut nylon cord. It is important to keep the tip clamp screws tight. If it doesn't heat up properly (less than 10 sec) then the clamp screws probably need tightening. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, December 16, 2008
