Nice thank you.
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.
Nice thank you.
Twin 2014 TW200's made side by side on the assembly line, Moose rear racks, Protaper Bars one with risers, DG oval pipes. rejetted carbs, 130 main jets, 2 -.020 shims on the needles and @ 2 1/2 turns on the pilot screw, #34 pilot jets, Aserbis hand guards, Shinko 241 front tires, weld on foot pegs, 14-55t sprockets, Ricochet skid plates and 90 degree fuel filters.
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.

For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.
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.
