    Electrical theory/info.

    Noticed some here (like me!) have been challenged by the electrical systems on their TW (which can relate to any other bikes) so I thought I would post up some older Yamaha training info on the subject.

    Feel free to post up links to info on other sites etc.

    Yamaha Training Info: Electrical Systems 1 - Theory & Diagnostics.

    Yamaha Training Info: Electrical Systems 2 - Ignition.

    Yamaha Training Info: Electrical Systems 3 - Charging.

    It's not really rocket science. Electrons go from here to there along conductive wires and in some cases, printed circuits. Along the way they create magnetic fields that do various jobs like increase voltage or amperage. Energize magnetic fields that generate more electricity from movement of other circuits. ( generators or alternators).
    Along the way they are guided by conductors and semi conductors. Semiconductors are those mysterious things that let electrons move one way but not go the other way,
    ( diodes in rectifiers are a good example) Light emitting diodes are another. The general behavior of electrons in a motorcycle are pretty easy to understand in the older bikes that don't have on board computers like in fool injection systems. These operate on PFM and are best understood by trained experts that have been schooled in that type of magic.

    PFM? Did you mean PWM - Pulse Width Modulation?

    Thank you for the links
    Although I have a strong electrical background (electrician, managed industrial motor rewind shop), I am looking forward to getting better acquainted with CDI.
