Tired of replacing the battery or acid leaking on your
pipes? Replace it with a 50,000-mfd,
16VDC computer grade capacitor.
What to do:
capacitor in ¼” to ½” foam sponge rubber extending over each end of
capacitor and tape it so it will not come off. The foam should be thick enough so the capacitor is a snug
fit in the battery box.
the black lead (-) to a clean tight ground. Remove paint and use serrated washer under ground lead bolt.
the red lead (+) as the battery hot lead was connected.
bike and run for at least one minute.
ignition on, neutral lamp should light for 5 to 15 seconds. (Capacitor should hold this charge for
System check with bike running:
voltmeter across ground and capacitor hot lead.
1500 RPM or above, voltmeter should read 13-15 volts with a steady meter,
that is, the reading should not change or bounce around.
the lights on, voltage should be 12 volts or above if RPM is 1500 or
1500 RPM or below, voltage will drop if turn signals or brake light are
Note: If voltage readings at 1500 RPM are above 16 volts or below 12
volts, the voltage regulator is probably defective. This also causes short bulb life.
The battery eliminator solves a number of problems:
acid leaking on pipes, wheels, etc.
battery replacement due to vibration.
of battery weight.
swings of defective battery resulting in weak spark, CDI failure, light
Disadvantages of battery eliminator are:
won’t work if bike is not running.
