At Current Effects, you”ll learn the best techniques and tools for troubleshooting, testing, and repairing wiring and components on motorcycle electrical systems. Whether working on sport bikes, dirt bikes, cruisers, or touring bikes, our site is a resource for anyone interested in straight forward advice for working with their electrical systems. We’ll teach you how to use common electrical tools like test lights, digital multimeters, soldering irons, load testers, battery chargers, amperage clamps, and ignition coil and spark testers to hunt down whatever problem your having. And expect to see some articles on wiring motorcycle accessories, we like doing that too. Most people are visual learners so we’ll try to use pictures, videos, and diagrams to help explain these electrical systems whenever possible. If you have any questions or input, send us a message on our Contact page, enjoy.
