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.

    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. Kinda disconcerting, re quality of the rest of the gun, but nothing else seems to be going... 4/5 tmexrea - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

This is the real deal when it comes to soldering! I'm not talking about small jobs either, this baby gets HOT and QUICK. While the pen type soldering irons are great for smaller applications, this gun blows away the competition when it comes to heavy duty jobs. If you have a large amount of solder to apply to big wires, this is the gun for you.And with the name Weller on the box, you can be guaranteed a great product! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, March 6, 2014

This review is from: Apex Tool Group D550PK 120-volt 260/200-watt Professional Soldering Gun Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) I wanted a gun that would deliver the heat quickly. This gun has two ranges and the high range is what I was looking for. It delivers what it advertises. It holds the heat to the solders melting point. There was no overheating or burnt material. It also has two lamps by the trigger to illuminate the job in weak light. I am very satisfied with this soldering gun, it functions well and has a real nice balance when working. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, September 29, 2008

This review is from: Apex Tool Group D550PK 120-volt 260/200-watt Professional Soldering Gun Kit (Tools & Home Improvement) The Weller Soldering Gun is a solid value for the price. This is a smart purchase for the electronics hobbyist or home projects solderer but it's probably not up to standards for the professionals out there. The kit tips are well shaped and the gun heats up very quickly. Be aware that for those looking to start out, this product is not a substitute for a pen style soldering iron as it's a bit too big for easy handling on detailed projects like board work. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, September 5, 2010

    Good Soldering Iron.

    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

This review is from: Weller SP25NUS Standard Duty LED Soldering Iron, Red/Black (Tools & Home Improvement) This is a nice soldering iron. I am using it mostly for PCB soldering and it is a little on the hot side for the task, and I wish the conical tip was more tapered as it quickly gets fat with solder build up. Overall, however, this is a good iron at this price point for the task I bought it for. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, February 5, 2014

    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).

    Great butane iron for the price

    For anyone who owned or used the original Portasol soldering iron, they will notice some vast improvements to this second design. Primarily, ignition no longer requires a "bic-lighter-type-spark" (that usually required at least three efforts), as it has been replaced by a piezo-electric spark. In addition, the gas supply seems much more stable and controllable, and finally, the soldering tips are much more robust and use the same mounting device for easy switching (though one must still wait for those parts to cool down before handling). Overall, the tool is well-built and very quick to achieve soldering temperatures. The only negatives I see are the relatively short run-time per tank of gas (about 45 mins on a low setting - less than they claim), and the absence of a temperature gauge, or series of led lights to roughly indicate temp. I don't think this feature is present on other, even more expensive portable units, but it would be a nice addition to ensure that expensive... 4/5 J.
