As a general rule house AC wiring is almost never subjected to the kinds of vibration and flexing that vehicles get continuously. It's also usually better protected from the elements.

Patrick;

If that table is using amperes RMS, then it is dead wrong. On the other hand, if it is showing the average AC value, which most AC voltmeters measure, then I can believe it.

I charged the new LiFePO4 60Ah battery over night and took it out to the workshop after dinner, just for fun I compared the weights of the new battery and my old Deka Dominator. I am lowering the bike weight by 6kg by doing this battery change, great! cool



So, I hooked the battery up and started the pumps. The first thing that happened was that the 30A fuse for the oil pump blew after like 5 seconds, this indicates that the battery is giving more juice to the pump than before. I replaced the fuse holder with a length of 6mm2 wire and tried it again with better luck. The + cable gets just noticeably "warm" but nothing that I need to worry about. Might add a larger fuse later.



Anyway the oil pressure is rock solid, nothing like before when the pressure started to drop after a dozen seconds or so. Success! Smiley

Cheers!
