This is another in the series of Haynes Motorcycle Techbooks (see the wBW Review of the Fuel Systems Techbook) that are used in some motorcycle engineering courses.
This book starts with the basics of electricity, and works through chapters on ignition and combustion; the various types of motorcycle ignitions (i.e., coil, magneto, CDI and digital); fuel injection, spark plugs, alternators and more.
There’s even a chapter on braking and traction control that includes ABS. There’s a lot of information packed into this book, and it can tend to be a bit dry, as it was meant to be a textbook and not a casual read. But it’s one of the best books out there if you want to develop a basic understanding of the electrical systems on your motorcycle.
