Once again, wisdom on this forum
, truly at 69 I am still learning. As to braking, sometimes my what would be called a near miss
in the electrical trade , has occurred because I am partially focused on what could potentially be a accident waiting to happen, and not paying as close attention to what I am doing, twice this year I dropped down too many gears and engine braked too hard, in that process, I broke traction on the rear wheel ( bike skidded sideways possibly 6 inches, it could have been the start of a crash), this was in a curve, fortunately I had already transferred load to the front wheel and brake, yes in my mind it was a oops
. The post by @quexpress
about slipper clutch got my attention, I have one on the way. Is it needed, well one needs to ask why Kawasaki is installing them on the 2017Ninja and newer bikes. Yes just making myself aware to never do that again, well everyone reacts differently
, which is many times the root cause of accidents
, oops missed my turn, instead of carrying on and turning around, sure slam on the brakes and cut across 3 lanes of traffic.
Many things I have are one off, no one has anything like it, understands how to or is remotely interested, just how my brain works.
Right now I am in the process of switching my ultraviolet light on my 11 filter RO system using a class 2 power supply switching a 24 VDC NC water solenoid with 1/4 quick connect .( UV is visible on the 90' fittings, plus recommended changing the UV lamp after 9 months, actual water production is about 3 hours per day or less, so my concern of the fittings failing is secondary to lamp life) In any case it is from China ( water solenoid ) some comments about running hot, I did some testing and found the valve will pull in using 14VDC, many experiments later and several class 2 power transformers and rectifier bridges, I found a power supply that is 18 VDC under load, this reduces the wattage by 1.6 Watts over the 24 VDC, instead of 4.8 watts it is 3.2 watts, instead of hot it is just warm after a hour. So I will be getting about 8 times the life out of my UV lamp and possibly reduce / eliminate any breakdown in the two fittings.
