    About my credentials for this topic.
    I was a Motorcycle Tech form 1976 to 2004. In 2004 I worked for MMI in Orlando for starters as a Basic Electricity Instructor. Later on I taught the Advanced Electricity class, and later 2 Yamaha modules (Electricity & Fuel Injection, and Maintenance). I also participated in the creation of new Class called Dealership Operations, and taught it.
