If you’ve ever been curious about the sparky bits on your scoot, this book is a great reference for those who want to know about such things. And shouldn’t every rider? Starting with the basics at electron level and explaining everything from Lucas magnetos (this is a British book, after all) to today’s electronic ignitions. Such things as ABS and traction control, and just about anything you should need to be familiar with for the function and general troubleshooting of your motorcycle will be found herein. In short, a demystifying text, which is a good thing. By Tony Tranter. Softbound 8.25"×10.5", 252 pp., b/w/c illus.
