Does your bike have a VAG?

I was talking to someone and they said some bikes use a variable ammeter guage, rather than a digital internal commutator? Im a bit confused and thought Id ask here?

I have never heard of either one before. It sounds like the guy who sent the new kid to find a rubber monkey wrench to me.

If the amps do not vary, you would not need a gauge. An ammeter gauge would indicated how the amps vary, but would not properly be called a variable ammeter gauge.

The digital internal commutator, are nonsense words to me.

A commutator is on the end of a shaft in a starter, alternator, or generator with many copper sections where the electrical brushes make contact.

It is a good thing you have been around awile CC, or I would probably have flagged this post as SPAM. LOL. Maybe it will make sense to someone else, but not me.

Yes, it goes right under the flux capacitor and is wired directly to the Heisenburg compensator.
No one uses the digital internal commutator (DIC) anymore for obvious reasons, why have a DIC when you can have a VAG right?

When you're facing the tail of the bike, is the VAG on the left or the right? I don't want to accidentally perform a Dirty Sanchez in the garage. Not by accident at least.

Depending on your year- the VAG may use insulated-gate bipolar transistors which have either reverse transfer capacitors or the pulse-width-modified tri-polar vacuum tubes. These both contain Zener diodes that allow voltage to pass when the magnitude of the amperage varies more than + or - three standard deviations from the normal value. On the other hand the digital internal communtator amp meter measures amperage without the use of solid state devices.

Hope this helps.
