TROUBLESHOOTING AND
TUNE-UP EQUIPMENT
Voltmeter, Ohmmeter, and Ammeter
For testing the ignition or electrical system, a
good voltmeter is required. For motorcycle use,
an instrument covering 0-20 volts is satisfac-
tory. One which also has a 0-2 volt scale is
necessary for testing relays, points, or in-
dividual contacts where voltage drops are much
smaller. Accuracy should be
_+
X
volt.
An ohmmeter measures electrical resistance.
This instrument is useful for checking conti-
nuity (open and short circuits), and testing
fuses and lights.
The ammeter measures electrical current.
Ammeters for motorcycle use should cover 0-50
amperes and 0-250 amperes. These are useful
for checking battery charging and starting cur-
rent.
Several inexpensive vakl's (volt-ohm-milli-
ammeter) combine all three instruments into
one which fits easily in any tool box. See Fig-
ure 5. However, the ammeter ranges are usually
too small for motorcycle work.
Hydrometer
The hydrometer gives a useful indication of
battery condition and charge by measuring the
