    My final reading. There is some current, but it is in the microamp range (135.9 uAmp). That is nothing, but my lawn mower does not have a clock, alternator, voltage regulator, lights, etc.

    Now, set your meter to read 10 amps. Remember, we do this because we want to take the large reading first, in case there is a big short. If there were a big short, and we were set to read...

    This is my meter, about $80 when I bought it. Most meters in this price range are pretty much the same. Look at the photos, the first one is set to read up to milliamps (uAmps, but reads milliamps...

    My 2 cents, as Kurt said, you need to measure amps, not volts. All bikes, cars, everything with a battery and solid state devices leak current all the time, even when turned off. This is called...

    They don't make the Brown for the mono-shock bike is correct, but the standard Brown will work. I installed them on my 95 R100RT, and 88 R100RS. The only issues are the size of the muffler clamp (I...

    San Jose BMW did my Motorsport. The bill came to well over $3K for mods in 85. Their work was well done, the bike was still running good when I sold it in 2012.
