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.

    Great analog soldering iron.

    A few years back I bought a digital soldering station from Rat Shack. It said it had replacable tips. You can replace them with as many tips as you want so long as you replace it with the only tip that fits that soldering iron which is huge. So I was working on a little tedious project and decided it was time to buy a new soldering iron that actually had a large selection of tips. After much deliberation I bought this one.The soldering wand is very ergonomic, light and easy to use. It has a soft narrow grip and a short tip making it easy to control when you are in tight spaces. It heats up in under a minute. The dial goes in 10 degree increments from 350 to 850 degrees Fahrenheit. The unit is very well built and has a sturdy stand with a funnel on the end to help guide the tip in so you aren't banging it against the coil when putting it in the stand.All in all I think it is a great soldering iron.

    High Quality and Easy to Use

    I got the WES51 station for my first soldering experience, replacing bad/blown capacitors in my older G5 Imac, and it worked great. (25 capacitors replaced successfully!)I purchased based on positive reviews and the price seemed good. Never having soldered before- and frankly never having worked on the guts of my computer before- the project was daunting; I didn't want to spend a lot of dough on a tool that I may never use again and for a project that I perceived had dim prospects for success. Having used it successfully, I now consider this to be an excellent tool and a tremendous value for the price.When I first opened the box, I thought the unit looked antiquated- something you might unearth from underneath your grandfather's workbench. It has one LED to let you know the unit is on and heating, and a dial. The machine is solid, though, and has the look and feel of quality.The iron itself is light and the soft foam rubber makes it very... 5/5 M.

    0 5/5 Fletch "Fletch" (Bugtussle, Timbuktu) - See all my reviews This review is from: Weller WES51 Analog Soldering Station (Tools & Home Improvement) The Weller WES51 is without a doubt the absolute best soldering iron that a working man can justify spending the money on. It's the ONLY heavy duty iron you'll ever find that allows exact temp settings for under a hundred bucks. It allows you to set the temp only a few degrees above the melting point of the solder, greatly enhancing the quality of your work. And it's a heavy duty unit, so unlike the cheap lightweight ripoffs. The rugged and user friendly design reminds me of something made in the 1950s or 1960s. Well done, Weller! 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, November 14, 2008

    Great iron if used carefully. Here are some tips (pun intended)

    I've had this iron for ten years now. The level of use it's seen has varied up and down, depending on how much time I had available to spend on my electronics hobby. The iron itself is absolutely fine for, you guessed it, hobby and DIY use (no problems with it not being ESD safe, and I've soldered a lot of semiconductors). If I ever need to do a higher volume of work I will upgrade to a WES-51 temp controlled station, but for now this continues to fit the bill quite nicely. The tips are long-lived if you take care of them (keep it tinned even while sitting in the holder, try not to bash it on the holder when you put it in, don't leave it switched on if it won't be used for a while). The standard tip is too big for electronics use and must be replaced with something smaller. For a long time I had a medium-size tip on there and it seemed to function well between 3 and 4 on the heat control, depending on the size of the work. With this station you need to pay quite careful attention to... 5/5 Science Boy - See all my reviews This review is from: Weller WLC100 40-Watt Soldering Station (Tools & Home Improvement) I've had this iron for ten years now.

    THIS IS THE ONE TO GET!

    0 5/5 FOX (USA) - See all my reviews Many years ago when I got this iron, it was only $30, and I see it has almost doubled in price, but STILL FAR BELOW the cost of the other Weller soldering iron stations!And there is really no other reason to get the other ones, when one of the elements goes bad on the other ones, you have to pay more than the price of this whole station just to replace the element! This one doesn't have any element, you just replace the tip, which you can get at any Radio Shack for a dollar or two tops. And I still have not needed to replace the tip on this one after years of use, since I keep the tip nice and tinned.This heats up nice and fast, is always reliable, just as good as any of the BLUE ones that cost three and four times the cost that the same company sells, and has never let me down.Get it now, before they raise the price any more!Once you get it, it should last a lifetime. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews&nbsp; Was this review helpful to you?&nbsp;, February 18, 2005

    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.

    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 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.

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
