Thanks for the link slimvr. I can probably learn enough there to read a wiring diagram correctly. Maybe even hook up some accessories without burning something up. It will be a valuble resource here if we take the time to learn to use it.

Good link JP, but it doesn't get into any kind of depth to help people understand how an AMP and Resistance correlate with each other. I see people asking questions like: "I want new turn signals, I found this one that looks wicked for cheep, and it uses only 35 watts of power per bulb (it uses 4 bulbs per turn signal)....will this work on our bikes???" Yes I am exaggerating but I want my point to come a crossed...

If you can understand the basics of the formulas governing electricity, then you can do anything with electricity.

I am a member of a Jeep Forum where people are always asking electrical questions. I don't claim to be an expert on Electricity, but that is one of my three specialties. My other two areas are Hydraulic Systems, and Compressed Air systems.

All areas related. None work without a full circuit!
